South Windsor, CT (PRWEB) December 6, 2008
A luncheon sponsored by the Hartford Business Journal recognized financial leaders of companies in Connecticut. Aerodyne Alloys' Chief Financial Officer, Don Pizzoferrato was among the selections as CFO of the Year.
The program was conceived and sponsored by the Hartford Business Journal. A panel of outside judges was employed to help editors narrow down a large pool of nominees to a group of 21 that were honored at a luncheon where awards were distributed.
Today's successful CFO must be able to call on a wide range of skills. CFOs track the diverse elements essential to the financial success of their organization, whether it's a Fortune 500 company, a local or regional firm. By developing metrics that measure performance, they provide a picture of the organization's condition across an array of critical categories. The CFO must be able to identify issues and opportunities--and act promptly to address them. Issues of healthcare, regulations, budgets, capital plans, payment terms, monitoring liquidity, and credit markets are only a few of the detailed tasks which must be managed.
"Don contributes a great deal to our company in terms of his overall expertise. He truly excels in his knowledge and understanding of the company, and the industry as a whole, and how each segment of the business interrelates. That requires versatility and focus," said Greg Chase, Aerodyne Alloys' President.
