The Commercial Finance Manager influences Parexel business growth and profitability through strategic financial leadership for clients or groups of clients and becomes known as the "expert" person for broader Finance and non-Finance understanding or insight into relevant client portfolios.

The Commercial Finance Manager must demonstrate competency in the overall financial management of contract types and will be critical to understand each of the assigned client's portfolio nuances in order to drive additional profit. He/She must be able to examine a portfolio and make the best decisions for Parexel.
