Join our exclusive CFO Roundtables to share insights and solutions with peers in family businesses.

Open to family and non-family executives, the CFO Roundtables bring together a small group of CFOs and Controllers from different family businesses to share common experiences and solutions to business, family, and governance challenges.

These gatherings are usually by invitation only, bringing together about a dozen individuals for two hours over breakfast or lunch, 3-4 times a year, at a restaurant. Each event features a host CFO who initiates the conversation by discussing an issue they have faced or are currently facing. Prior topics have included cybersecurity and governance. Group members benefit from feedback from peers who understand the unique challenges and privileges of being in a family business.

If you are a high-level finance leader for a family business, reach out to Jill McCall to be added to the invitation list.
