We’re honored to have a financial industry leader such as John Allison join us to engage the Charlotte CFO community and bring this discussion the attention it deserves nationally, says Araco.

Credited as having “Wall Street smarts” and “main street values”, CFOs of middle market companies from around the Charlotte, NC area are planning to share their own findings on the origins of the U.S. financial crisis with CFOs from ten other markets as part of an innovative knowledge-sharing initiative led by The CFO Alliance, a CFO peer-to-peer community that has quickly become a collective voice for middle market CFOs from across the country.

Having worked closely with the over 2,400 CFO Alliance members over the past year, Nick A. Araco, Jr., Esq., president and CEO of The CFO Alliance, believes the upcoming Charlotte chapter discussion of the CFO Alliance will add a lesser heard, but highly influential voice to the debate surrounding the origins of the greatest financial crisis of the last 70 years.

"We are looking forward to adding the voice of the middle market CFOs to this discussion and helping to bring forth important lessons for government and industry for years to come," says Araco.

John A. Allison, Retired Chairman & CEO BB&T Corp. in association with Wake Forest University Schools of Business has agreed to help tee up The CFO Alliance discussion by presenting his own postmortem on the financial the crisis, titled The U.S. Financial Crisis: Causes, Cures, and Consequences.

“We’re honored to have a financial industry leader such as John Allison join us to engage the Charlotte CFO community and bring this discussion the attention it deserves nationally,” says Araco.
