John Fruin: From Finance to Treasury to FP&A
In many ways John Fruin's career encapsulates the major changes in treasury and finance. He started as an investment banker, moved to Growmark (where he still works) as a financial analyst, then moved to treasury and, ultimately, FP&A.
In this episode of AFP Conversations, host Ira Apfel interviews Fruin, Manager of Financial Planning & Analysis, about his multi-faceted career, managing Millennials, his challenges in FP&A, and why he volunteers so much time with AFP.
