The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in partnership with Deloitte Uganda Limited is now accepting entries for the 2020 Chief Finance Officer (CFO) Awards.
Established in 2017, the awards are aimed at recognizing and celebrating the outstanding achievements of CFOs. The awards are open to finance officers of listed companies, large corporations, SMEs, state- owned entities, Non-governmental organizations and government institutions.
Themed ‘building resilient finance leaders and organizations’, the fourth annual awards will continue to illuminate the essential role that the finance function plays in driving integrated thinking in decision-making and in building sustainable business models while acknowledging the agility with which organizations have transformed work against all odds.
“The purpose of the CFO awards is to raise the profiles of the CFO’s, their involvement in the ever-changing world and development of businesses and finance practices. We also recognize excellence and the essential roles they play in building resilient organizations,” says Nobert Kagoro, Country Managing Partner, Deloitte Uganda.
Charlotte Kukunda, Business Development Manager, ACCA Uganda said, “through the CFO Awards, ACCA has been able to live and demonstrate its purpose, drawing attention to the necessary professional skills that should be adopted and demonstrated by leaders who meet needs of a rapidly changing business and economic landscape.”
