“The Controller's Summit is a must-attend event for controllers and senior finance executives who want to lead their companies to best financial practice policies,” said RD Whitney, IOFM Executive Director. “It is also a great opportunity for controllers to network with their peers and exchange information on what works and doesn’t work at their organizations.”
“Controllers today face a series of major concerns, both day-to-day and strategic. CFOs around the country have been urging their controllers to get more education on how to deal with these urgent issues. That’s why we created the Controller's Summit,” said Whitney.
