Letter From Our Event Chair

It is my honor to Chair the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the FEI Chicago Chapter’s Chicago CFO of the Year® Awards. This prestigious Awards Celebration honors Chicago’s finest CFO’s for their exceptional leadership, especially during a time marked by fiscal challenges, an increasingly competitive corporate environment and changes brought on by the pandemic. All of the CFOs recognized with this Award are the finest in Chicago!

The 2021 Awards Celebration will be held Thursday November 18 and the format has been significantly modified from our traditional event, to adhere to social distancing and CDC guidelines.  The in-person Awards Celebration at the Marriott on Michigan Ave. (5:30pm start time) is by invitation only for Finalists and a limited number of their guests; our Chicago CFO of the Year sponsors and the FEI Chicago CFO of the Year committee and Board of Directors. Safety is our priority for this celebration.  All others are invited and encouraged to celebrate our Finalist’s accomplishments via a free live stream of the awards celebration starting at 7pm. Watch Parties could be a fun and engaging way to cheer on and celebrate our Finalists and Recipients! Details on the live stream will be posted in the coming weeks.

We thank you for your continued support and participation in helping to make this the BEST event ever!!

CONGRATULATIONS to our 10th Anniversary Chicago CFO of the Year® Award Finalists!
