6TH ANNUAL CFO INNOVATION AWARDS

The CFO Innovation Awards, inaugurated in 2012, recognize Asia's leaders in all aspects of financial management. Nominated and voted on by the readers of CFO Innovation, the awards provide an opportunity to celebrate excellence and network with hundreds of leading CFOs and their partner suppliers. The annual awards ceremony acknowledges not only chief financial officers and their teams, but also the firms that provide them with the services, support, and technologies that enable their success.

In this sixth year of the awards, we also honor individual transformative projects and transactions that showcase effective collaboration between the CFO and his or her service provider.

Examples of transformative projects include the deployment of innovative technology that resulted in finance acquiring outstanding analytics capability, adoption of a new budgeting process with the help of a management consultant and implementation of a cash management solution that resulted in 100% global cash visibility.
