Dutch translation:het verschil...
Explanation:
These are pretty much Humpty-Dumpty words and can mean whatever you want them to mean. Generally speaking, though, a CFO has a seat on the board. My feeling is that finance director is synonymous with CFO, but is used in smaller companies. If used in a larger company where there is also a CFO, it would probably be a fairly senior exec who reports to the CFO. The group financial controller will also be fairly senior, having financial responsibility for all subsidiaries. I think it's common to keep these sorts of titles in English.
