About the event
The Indian economy has emerged on the global platform with robust growth over the past decade and established itself as a shining star in the world economy amidst turbulence in bellwether economies. The fallout of the global crisis and domestic concerns which have manifested through increased economic uncertainty has tested the fundamentals of corporate India. Amidst these uncertainties and economic challenges, India Inc. has been identifying opportunities, and more importantly seizing these opportunities for growth and value creation, what can be termed as Carpediem.
The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is a key stakeholder in steering the growth of India Inc. and has indeed taken “centre stage” within the organization’s strategic decision-making & execution. The CFO’s role has transitioned from the traditional functions of controlling the finance & accounts of the organization, to being core to the execution of corporate strategy – both organic & inorganic. The CFO over the years has increasingly become the chief flag bearer of Corporate Transparency, Governance and Financial Leadership.
To recognize and acknowledge the exemplary achievements and the professional contribution of such esteemed CFOs, BW Businessworld, launched the Best CFO Awards in 2016, and is now back with the 4th edition of the awards in 2020.
