Los Angeles Business Journal CFO Awards Panel Discussion 2021
As part of the Los Angeles Business Journal’s CFO Awards free virtual event that was staged this year on Wednesday, September 22nd, we also featured an elite panel of industry experts who discussed the ever-changing economic climate, the evolving role of the CFO, the current state of financial affairs, and the overall financial outlook of businesses in Southern California this year.
It was a discussion not to be missed, with our panelists delving into specifics pertaining to the shifting set of demands CFOs are tasked with, how companies are rebounding financially and socially from the pandemic and other social challenges to an overview of the M&A market to cybersecurity matters to some of the best practices that have evolved around the “new normal” in order to achieve fiscal resiliency.
