Is a controller higher than a manager?
By Zippia Team - Feb. 10, 2022
Yes, a controller is higher than a manager in a company. The controller works above the managers in the Finance and Operations branch. Managers oversee the company's finance, while controllers work in accounting and reporting roles.
The financial controller oversees the accounting manager, auditor, planning, and operation managers. The controller is considered a senior-level executive that works with the CEO to maintain a company's financial health.
