CFOs across the Midwest are redefining what it means to be a leader in both business and in our communities. Even in challenging times like these, they show unwavering commitment to our economy, making difficult financial decisions that help lead their organizations through growth and change. And, they show their dedication to local communities through their philanthropic efforts.
