  • Conducting economic and industry analyses to identify and recommend response strategies to trends affecting the business.
  • Monitoring the company’s performance against external market benchmarks, comparables, and internally tracked Key Performance Indicator (KPI) targets.
  • Researching and investigating financial and operational performance variances, providing support to business leaders in taking corrective actions.
