The role of the CFO is constantly being redefined. This is partially due to the consistent need to adapt to the changing environment for the CFO. In 1978, less than 10% of major companies in the US had CFOs, compared to 80% or more each year after 2000. Between now and then, the CFO has developed from a bean-counter to a strategic business partner.

Their responsibilities have largely been dependent on economic change and trends in the general business environment. In recent years, automation and other technological advances have seen them take even greater responsibility for strategic planning at their organizations.

The CFO Rising East Summit returns to Boston to explore the evolving role of the CFO, and how such changes externally and internally impact their duties. The summit aims to help CFOs find their own unique path to add value to the company and their own personal growth. This is achieved through 35+ keynote presentations, interactive panel sessions, Q&As and endless networking opportunities.

The summit is now only 4 weeks away and the agenda now encompasses 5 tracks focusing on CFO Innovation, Finance Transformation, Corporate Strategy, Cybersecurity and Corporate Finance Tech. With strategy being a hot topic, Nitin Gupta, the CFO at Siemens will be joining us to discuss strategic Decision-making and the CFO. Nitin will delve into the evolving role of the CFO as a business partner to the CEO in order to steer the company. The North American Controller at Hershey Company will support this with a presentation on the role of finance in strategy execution & business innovation.

"Once again CFO Publishing have expanded the summit to include five tracks, instead of three. This isn't just a value add, but a targeted move towards the CFOs needs," said the International Events Director, Aaron Fraser.

There are now only a few remaining passes available to this flagship event. Get in contact today to secure a pass and enquire about discounts and group rates.
