A CPA (Certified Public Accountant) would certainly be qualified to become a CFO (Chief Financial Officer) of a company or business.
Like with all promotions and stages of career progression, a certification opens the door, while determination, good people skills, and good fortune contributes to gaining a higher position in a company.
