Canada's CFO of the Year™ Award Nominations Now Open for 2020
TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2019 /CNW/ - If you know an outstanding financial leader from any business sector across the country, it's time to nominate them for Canada's CFO of the Year™ Award. All applicants have until January 31, 2020 to submit their nomination at www.cfoy.ca.
Today's CFOs are faced with a complex and rapidly changing business environment driven by technological disruption. Their companies' growth strategies must be supported by a nimble finance organization capable of delivering forward-looking insights while also managing risk and compliance, effectively allocating capital, and providing liquidity.
Beyond managing the finance function, CFOs are strategic leaders within their organization and mentors to a younger generation of future finance innovators. They're shaping these up-and-comers to not only master the role, but also to be leaders within their broader community.
CFOs from any business sector across Canada can be nominated for the Award and are considered based on the following six criteria: Inspirational Leadership, Business Performance, Social Responsibility, Innovation, Demonstrating Financial Accountability, and Mentoring and Development.
The winner will be announced on March 9, 2020 and the recipient will be celebrated at an Award ceremony at The Ritz Carlton in Toronto on April 28, 2020.
Previous recipients of the Award include a diverse range of top industry leaders from across Canada including financial services, entertainment and media, public sector, and consumer goods. See the list of past winners here.
The Award, presented by Financial Executives International Canada (FEI Canada), PwC Canada and Robert Half, recognizes an individual who best exemplifies the evolving role of the CFO, which has moved beyond the traditional perception of financial expert to that of a strategic, influential and essential member of the C-suite.
An independent selection committee will determine the Award winner. For more information on Award eligibility or to submit your nomination for the next Canada's CFO of the Year™, please visit www.cfoy.ca.
