The Houston Business Journal just announced the finalists for its CFO of the Year award for 2013. The award recognizes the area’s “fearless financial strategists who provide guidance and sound advice to CEOs and directors.”
The HBJ received more than 60 nominations for the prestigious CFO of the Year award. The judges, all experts in the industry, narrowed down the field to 29 finalists in the following categories:
– Small private company (< $75 million)
– Medium private company ($76-$499 million)
– Large private company ($500 million +)
– Small public company (market cap < $2 billion)
– Medium public company (market cap $2.1-$6 billion)
– Large public company (market cap $6.1 billion +)
– Growth Manager
– Turnaround Specialist
– Community Impact
Among the four finalists in the small private company category are two alumni of our Coaching Program; Leonard Schluns, CFO of Steel Supply LP, and Geri Pacheco, CFO of ArchCon Corporation. Needless to say, we are extremely proud of these guys and hope to see one of them win the HBJ CFO of the Year award for small private companies. Also nominated in the medium private company and growth manager categories is our friend Marilynne Franks, CFO of Blinds.com.
HBJ will announce the winners of each category at the CFO of the Year Awards luncheon at the Hilton Post Oak on Aug. 16. Click here for the announcement article and a slideshow of the finalists.
