Steve Watson, a combined finance and human resources professional in the Phoenix, Arizona area, joined us for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. You are going to get a double learning opportunity from this episode. First, we discuss how Steve’s career started with an interest in finance due to both familial and educator influences, and how his career eventually built up to Director of Finance and CFO roles. Secondly though, we talk about how his move into smaller organizations gave him the opportunity to take on more responsibility with respect to controlling rising healthcare costs, and how that now has become a deeply-rooted passion for him. Steve now not only helps his own organization control medical insurance costs, but now he also teaches other financial professionals about cost-saving options that they typically don’t hear from their inurance providers. It’s become a calling for Steve. If you enjoy this episode, make sure to also check out: Stefanie Cavanaugh and David Porter.
