Chief financial officers across the Midwest are redefining what it means to be a leader in both business and in our communities. In all economic climates, they show unwavering commitment, making sometimes difficult financial decisions that help guide their organizations through growth and change. At the same time, they show their dedication to local communities through their philanthropic efforts.

As the Chicago CFO of the Year event marks its 12th anniversary, Associated Bank is honored to have been a sponsor since its beginning. We congratulate FEI for showcasing Chicago’s influential financial leaders.
