The CEO-CFO dialogue: strategy to synergy: partnership between corporate leaders: an event presented jointly by Economist Conference and CFO – Economist Conferences – Calendar

An event presented jointly by Economist Conferences and CFO

November 5th 2003 * The Metropolitan Club * New York City

Trust, value, growth: three qualities desired above all by the leaders of corporate America. Listing them is easy; acquiring–or recapturing–them is less straightforward.

What is needed is a resolute focus on strategy, robust performance and good governance. And something more. A strong and effective relationship at the very top.

Discussion leaders:

Frank E. Weise III Chairman and CEO Cott

Carol Tome EVP and CFO Home Depot

Michael Critelli Chairman and CEO Pitney Bowes

Jackson Moore Chairman President and CEO Union Planters
