CFO Forum

The economy is heating up here, but more importantly, globally. Talent is harder to find than at any time in recent history, and wages are going up as a result. Technological advances demand increased capital expenditures, while the likelihood of rising interest rates is leading to new focus on corporate debt and possible M&A activity by the end of the year. Meanwhile, the responsibilities for financial executives continue to evolve, and increase. Panelists will discuss how they’re tackling – or have just tackled – such challenges, while also preparing for what lies ahead.
