Finance leaders walked away with trophies at the FutureCFO Excellence Awards 2023.
On Feb 22, more than 20 winners and finalists were recognised at the award ceremony attended by CFOs and finance leaders across multiple industries at The St. Regis Singapore.
This year’s theme, Achieving Resilience Through Transformative Innovation, acknowledges the challenges that finance professionals have faced as individuals and team members in maintaining resilience throughout the pandemic and working towards sustainable growth in 2022 and beyond.
“The second annual awards programme was a great success, having attracted submissions from across Asia Pacific,” said Allan Tan, editor-in-chief of Cxociety and FutureCFO. “Asia’s CFOs and finance teams have overcome tremendous challenges during the past few years and we're honoured to recognise them for the transformations they have made.”
