CFO Magazine Accepting Nominations for 'Excellence Awards'

The 2001 CFO Excellence Awards, sponsored by CFO Publishing Corporation and Arthur Andersen, offer public and private companies the opportunity to bring a new level of visibility and recognition to their finance teams, says Mary Driscoll, president of CFO Enterprises. Now CFOs from companies with annual revenues in excess of $300 million may apply, and the winners will be prominently featured in the October 2001 issue of CFO magazine.

Completed applications for one or more of ten new categories, each designed to reflect the diverse nature of finance today, are due on April 30, 2001. To nominate a CFO, simply complete the nomination form online at CFO's web site. There is no charge to enter, and a distinguished panel of experts, including CEOs, will review each entry. Julia Homer, editor-in-chief of CFO magazine, will chair the panel.

"Over time, winners of the CFO Excellence Awards have come to personify best practices in finance," states Ms. Driscoll. "They meet the challenge of bringing value to stakeholders in the new economy, often against long odds, with creativity, determination, and skill. Their invaluable contribution to America's collective managerial acumen deserves our highest praise and consideration."

This year's Excellence Award Categories are:

  • Driving Revenue Growth
  • Finance Transformation in the Internet Era
  • Capital Structure Management
  • Deal-Making and Integration
  • Turnaround Management
  • Information Management/Business Decision Support
  • Planning and Performance Management
  • Managing External Stakeholders
  • Risk Management
  • Finance Leadership, Development and Training

All information submitted as part of the CFO Excellence Awards process will be kept confidential. However, should a nominee win, he/she will be interviewed by CFO magazine, and any public information submitted as a part of the application may appear as part of an article in the October 2001 issue.
