New York, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
The third annual CFO Playbook for Private Companies conference will bring together distinguished speakers and senior finance executives from companies of all sizes and industries to focus on the unique opportunities for growth facing privately held companies. The conference will take place Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 through Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 at the JW Marriott in Miami, Florida.
The 2013 program focuses on the role of the CFO and the issues they face as “Chief Change Officer” in their organizations: Gerson Lehrman Group CFO Tania Secor will explore the expanding strategic role of the finance chief, and the need to be able to “pivot" quickly to capitalize on growth opportunities; Ocean Bank CFO and chief risk officer Stan Rubin will discuss the leadership skills required to effectively lead people through transformation; and Axium Healthcare Pharmacy CFO Bill Bucher will focus on how to create and maintain a high-growth culture.
Delegates will also hear inside stories: Chris-Craft CFO Mark Poncin on how he and his finance team helped this iconic 100 year old company to not only weather the devastating impact of the recession but to rebuild and grow in its aftermath, and Greenway Medical Technologies CFO Al Cochran on how his company transitioned from start-up to IPO.
“CFOs of private companies are faced with so many challenges these days,” said Richard Rivera, senior vice president for CFO Publishing. “This conference was created specifically to address their needs. Attendees will learn best practices for succeeding in the post-recession complex environment.”
Experts who will join these CFOs to address timely and critical topics include Gregory Miller, Chief Economist of SunTrust Banks; Human Capital Management Institute CEO Jeff Higgins; Daniel G. Van Der Vliet, Director of The Family Business Initiative at the University of Vermont; and Marie Hollein, President and CEO of Financial Executives International.
