After starting his career in a Big 4 accounting firm and then steadily ascending through numerous (and varied) corporate finance roles over nearly two decades, Michael Hug possessed a clear vision for his CFO tenure at the world’s largest publicly traded timeshare company. “I didn’t want my team to just be the people who come in, count the money, and deposit it in the bank,” he notes. “Rather, I wanted us to be embedded in the business—to have a great relationship with our business leaders—while helping the organization to achieve its goals.” Hug assumed his finance chief role as Wyndham Destinations was spinning off its sister company. This timing gave him the unique opportunity to build a senior corporate finance leadership team—including the heads of investor relations, treasury, and internal audit, as well as a chief accounting officer—from scratch.
