CFO Awards 2015 judged by impressive group of industry leaders

One of the biggest success factors of the inaugural CFO Awards in May this year was the impressive panel of judges that was willing to interview and adjudicate each and every candidate for the various award categories. Not only CFO of the Year winner Simon Ridley (Standard Bank), but virtually all the other award nominees remarked what an honour it was to be judged by such an impressive group of industry leaders.

So here's the breaking news: the panel of judges for the CFO Awards 2015 is going to be even more impressive!
