The Business Journal has selected 18 North Bay chief financial officers to be honored in its sixth annual CFO Recognition Awards that will include a keynote address by the CEO of one of the world’s fastest growing wine companies.
“The CFO is the fiscal conscience of an organization. Without them, most organizations simply could not function,” said Business Journal Publisher Brad Bollinger. “Yet, as important as they are, they seldom get recognized for their contributions. These awards are about changing that.”
The recipients will be honored at a luncheon on Aug. 31 at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa that will include keynote Chris Indelicato, CEO of Delicato Family Vineyards and 2016-2017 second vice chairman of the California Wine Institute.
Registration for the CFO Awards luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. with the program beginning at noon.
Tickets are $75 per person, $650 for a table of eight. Seating is limited. Register online at nbbj.news/cfo16 or call Linda Perkins at 707-521-5264 no later than Aug. 26.
The event is underwritten by Anderson-Zeigler, BPM Accountants and Consultants, Comerica Bank and Nelson. Award sponsors are George Petersen Insurance and Moss-Adams LLP.
