CFO Awards 2022 – RECAP


Letter from the Publisher

Josh Schimmels


 

Our CFOs are increasingly called on to meet today’s challenges – challenges that go well beyond the coronavirus pandemic. They are on the front lines in facing the intricacies of the bottom line – and managing the constantly evolving assortment of trends, best practices, rules and regulations. More than ever, our organizations depend on the creative and diligent work of these important executives.

In this, our 16th annual Los Angeles Business Journal CFO Awards special post-event supplement, we celebrate the efforts and achievements of some of the region’s greatest financial stewards of the corporate space. This issue shines a much-deserved spotlight on the honorees and finalists we celebrated at our 2022 CFO of the Year Awards on Thursday, September 22nd.

The wide range of superb nominations we received this year – each an example of excellence in the field of financial business stewardship – made it particularly challenging to single out the honorees.

Honorees and finalists are announced in this section in 10 categories – all of whom are described in these pages. You will also find some details recapping the excellent panel discussion that took place as part of the event.

I’d like to thank our event sponsors, who are dedicated to supporting financial executives, led by Diamond Sponsors Fifth Third Bank, Marsh McClennan Agency, and RSM. We also thank our Platinum Sponsors BMO, and CSUN’s Nazarian College of Business and Economics. We hope you enjoy this special section, which contains some insights on what it means to be a corporate steward of the bottom line in today’s business climate. And again, congratulations to all the great CFOs in the Los Angeles area who tirelessly contribute to the success of your businesses, and ultimately, our business community as a whole.
