The Houston Business Journal just announced the finalists for its CFO of the Year award for 2014. The award recognizes the area’s “fearless financial strategists who provide guidance and sound advice to CEOs and directors.” The HBJ received more than 90 CFO of the Year nominations this year for the prestigious CFO of the Year award. The judges, all experts in the industry, narrowed down the field to 16 finalists from various industries, company size and longevity.
Criteria for CFO of the Year Nominations
Criteria the judges reviewed included:
- implementation of strategic plans
- achieving or sustaining profitable growth
- risk identification and management
