The Financial Executives and Controllers Council is designed for senior executives and directors with responsibility for financial control of international industrial and commercial companies. This exclusive forum brings together representatives of some of the largest companies operating in Europe to share best practices and challenges, seek advice, and learn from each other.
Members come from different industries and include financial executives and group controllers from ABB, Tetra Pak, SCOR, Fresenius Medical Care, Heraeus Holding, Firmenich, DP DHL, Bekaert, Cargill, Oerlikon, Johnson Controls, Monsanto, Merck, and many more.
Members connect regularly, meet three times a year, and work together in an open and frank style, allowing a full exchange of views.
Enduring relationships with trusted peers in an international network are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogues at meetings and in between provide you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
