The CFO Leadership Council Announces CXO NOW, An Exclusive Network For Women Executives!

The CFO Leadership Council proudly announces a brand new initiative, CXO NOWTM, CXO Network Of Women Executives!  CXO NOW is a unique, virtual community of highly accomplished women leaders in the C-Suite well beyond finance. Approximately 40% of CFO Leadership Council members are women who also find tremendous value in connecting and sharing with other females with C-Suite responsibilities.  The CXO NOW™ connects women in leadership interested in sharing stories of success and struggles and nourishing one another through the collective experience.

“CXO NOW is a natural extension of our mission to empower CFOs.  I am excited and proud that our female members, collaborating with our employees, want to expand this mission to include the entire C-Suite.  With over 600 highly-accomplished women among our members, CXO NOW is already an impactful group from day one.  I look forward to seeing this group grow and evolve.”
Jack McCullough, President & Founder, CFO Leadership Council

The CFO Leadership Council (CFOLC) will bring the same quality programs & proven networking platforms to this new CXO NOW in ways that will inspire and transform this unique group.   CXO NOW members will share their stories and focus on both the challenges and successes they experience in their professional lives.

Since 2006, The CFO Leadership Council (CFOLC) has made enormous strides in the mission to empower finance leaders.  This initiative takes that empowerment to a whole new level.

“It’s been an honor to take part in the creation of this initiative.  We wanted to create something different, like nothing else out there and I think we’ve done that.  Thanks to all the influential women we spoke to, CXO NOW is the creation of their ideas and their ideal Network of Women.”
Jeanene Golden, Southwest Regional Director & CXO NOW Team Leader
