Stocks in this article: WYN

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Proformative, the pioneering leader in Enterprise Social Procurement™ for the office of the CFO, today announced its line up of world-class speakers for CFO Dimensions 2013 : Strategic Leadership in Finance: The Next Step, the premier conference for chief financial officers and senior corporate finance executives. Featuring a full slate of presenters ranging from top public and private company finance leaders to renowned subject matter experts, the event offers attendees the opportunity to network with peers, as well as earn up to 10 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.


Keynote speaker Tom Conforti, executive vice president and CFO of Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN), will share his unique experiences and insights on the powerfully transformative role of finance in unlocking enterprise value.  Conforti's finance team played a critical role in helping successfully lead Wyndham out of the economic downturn through innovative financial strategies and investments in the company's people, culture, and shareholders. Today, the company has established itself as the market leader in each of its business segments, ranks #12 on Bloomberg Businessweek's list of the 50 Top-Performing U.S. Companies, and was recognized as the single best performing stock of the S&P 500 since the downturn in 2008.

"As the world of finance and business in general continues to evolve in complexity, the role of the CFO has also continued to change—enabling finance to play a leading role across the enterprise," said Conforti. "I am honored to deliver the keynote for such an influential group of finance leaders as those who will be attending Proformative's CFO Dimensions and look forward to sharing what I have learned throughout this remarkable journey."

Other CFO Dimensions 2013 speakers include subject matter experts, chief financial officers, and senior finance executives from leading organizations such as Ariba, The Associated Press, Easter Seals, Ernst and Young, Financial Executives Consulting Group, Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, International Association of Firefighters, KPMG, SAP, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, among dozens of others.

Addressing the evolving leadership role of the CFO and the senior finance management team, the conference features valuable educational sessions and workshops in four conference tracks: Leadership; Governance, Risk and Compliance; Technology; and Operational Effectiveness.

"We're excited to host CFO Dimensions 2013 in the heart of the financial capital of the world," commented Proformative co-founder and CEO John Kogan. "With another stellar group of speakers along with a dynamic mix of CFOs, finance leaders, and subject matter experts, I have no doubt that this year's attendees will find it tremendously valuable to invest a day away from the office to gain much needed perspective, share knowledge and best practices, as well as have some fun networking with their peers."

CFO Dimensions is scheduled for August 22, 2013 at the New York Marriott Marquis. For more information and to register, please visit the CFO Dimensions 2013 conference page.
