Elevating Financial Leadership for Construction Companies
Many contractors face increased competition for work, tighter margins, and continue to assume more risk than ever on each project. To remain successful, construction companies need to adapt their strategy for success in an increasingly challenging world. This begins with CEO's recognizing the need to evolve the role of their financial team from one of technical financial management to a more strategic one.
"To ensure a construction company's ability to sustain profitable growth, CFOs will need to transition from counting the money to strategically help the organization make money!" - Craig Damos
The goal of this CEO/President round table is to discuss the experience of some of the largest and most successful construction companies that can be applied to your business and gain a further appreciation for:
The Role of Your CFO as Financial Leader
Enterprise-Wide Risk Management & Role in Decision Making
Gross Profit Margin Improvement Process
This event is sponsored by The Horton Group and Crowe Horwath. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. Round Table is limited to 15 participants.
