BALTIMORE—The CFO Leadership Council is empowering financial executives to make an impact in their organizations and the greater Baltimore community, and Womble Bond Dickinson is proud to be a Founding Sponsor of the CFO Leadership Council’s Baltimore Chapter.
The Council provides educational and networking opportunities to chief financial officers and other senior-level financial executives. The Baltimore Chapter is the latest of 27 chapters in the US & Canada, representing more than 1,600 finance executives across a wide range of industries.
As part of the firm’s support of the CFO Leadership Council, Womble Bond Dickinson’s Baltimore office will host a series of informational sessions.
The first event, a program titled “Beyond the Numbers - The CFO as an Agent of Change”, took place September 18. This initial CFO Leadership Council event included a panel of seasoned CFOs who shared their experiences on the complexity of supporting growth, handling risk, and working with C-suite leadership.
This session will be followed by “Cybersecurity: How to Stay Ahead of the Latest Threats in Cyber” on October 29. This panel will focus on cyber-related issues from the standpoint of the CFO. Additional sessions will include thought leadership covering timely topics of interest to senior financial executives.
