Presented by

Randy McCoy, CFO at DataKinetics
I am a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA) with over twenty-five years of experience in financial leadership for software, manufacturing, and professional services businesses. I have a unique blend of financial and communication expertise that has enabled me to balance human resources and business skills with financial acumen. I have successfully negotiated contracts with several Fortune 500 accounts spread across diverse industries. I have served as Finance Director at Kinaxis and as Senior Finance Manager at Autodesk, where I managed multimillion dollar deal negotiations, navigated complex US GAAP revenue recognition, and maintained intricate budgeting and forecasting models while guiding financial growth. My collaborative approach and communication capabilities have led to thriving, long-standing client and colleague relationships with mutually beneficial outcomes. Incorporating financial modeling in real time has helped accelerate corporate decision making and direction—continually finding creative ways to address challenges and to make significant and meaningful impact to business outcomes. As a corporate finance professional in the technology sector, I have been privileged to deliver finance for IT presentations at industry events such as the CMG Performance and Capacity Conference, and the IBM Share Conference. In addition, I am a big believer in giving back to the community. I am passionate about improving Financial Literacy in Canada, and volunteer with JA Ottawa teaching economics for success to students, am a registered financial literacy volunteer with CPA Canada’s Community Connect Network.
