The Emerging CFO: Future Finance Leaders


The Emerging CFO: Future Finance Leaders

Calling the future finance leaders of tomorrow. Fortune, in partnership with Workday, convenes this series to support and inspire emerging CFOs and senior finance leaders. In conversations with CEOs and leading CFOs, we will explore what chief executives are looking for in their finance leaders. We’ll also dive deep into the changing nature of the chief finance job and discuss the most sought-after skills and expertise needed to climb the finance ladder in any organization. From data analytics to softer skills like communication and culture, we will learn from the masters what it takes to continue growing into finance leadership roles.

We will gather next on October 25, 2023, 8:00 AM-9:00 AM PT/11:00 AM-12:00 Noon ET

Presented in partnership with Workday

McKinsey research shows that many business unit leaders view the CFO and the finance team as obstacles, not allies, to the innovation process. And yet now more than ever, companies need CFOs engaged in innovation, whether that's investing in labor and cost-saving automation projects, or new digital products and services. In this Emerging CFO conversation we will explore strategies to shift the Finance-IT relationship from its traditional support model to a partnership focused on co-innovation, from breaking down data silos to improving cross-functional skills.
Confirmed speakers will include:
Eric Kutcher, CFO, McKinsey & Company
Zane Rowe, CFO, Workday
