The Chicago CFO Leadership Council

When we decided to form our Chicago chapter, we were very excited about all of the potential that this thriving area has to offer:

a bustling metropolis of trailblazers, home to many incubators, start-ups, hedge funds, financial derivative exchanges, and trading firms – and the roots of GoGo and Google. In our mission to empower CFOs, Chicago is the place to be! Where there’s innovation, there’s also an abundance of energetic CFOs, paving the way for plenty of creative idea exchange and networking.



We are honored to be aligned with the following industry experts.
