Cline brings wealth of experience to Symmetry Software.
(Scottsdale, Ariz. April 18, 2018) - Assuming the role as chief financial officer seems daunting to the naked eye. For Chad Cline, Symmetry software’s newest hire and head honcho of finance, it’s an exciting opportunity. Cline comes off the heels of over 22 years of accounting roles in large companies such as Ernst Young, JDA Software, and Aspect Software. Most recently he provided finance and management consulting services to businesses through Pursuit Advisory Group. Cline also serves as Chairman of the Board for Republic Bank of Arizona.
Cline’s professional career began after he graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business Administration and Accounting. After many years in the corporate world, Cline began to crave a better balance between his professional career and personal life.
“I looked at what I had done in the first half of my professional career and felt like it had been successful,” Cline said. “But then I said, ‘ok, what is significant about what I’m doing? How can I redefine success so I can spend more time with my family and pursue some of my personal passions?’”
The inviting atmosphere of Symmetry’s small business model - where family-life is just as important as work and individuals can thrive - coupled with the right connections secured Cline’s position. He hopes to bring a proactive approach to finance and accounting to Symmetry.
“The accounting role generally looks backward through historical financial statements and says, ‘Here’s what we did,’” he said. “But we can also look forward and say, ‘What do we want to be in the future?’ Then we [the finance department] can partner with others in the company to get us there.”
Outside of work, Cline enjoys spending time with his two kids, both of whom are active in school and sports, and wife, who enjoys planning family trips.
