Behind a successful business, there are many people’s hard works and efforts. Chief financial officer (CFO) is one of them. They are the unsung heroes of India Inc. Though they carry huge responsibilities, they work quietly more than balancing the books, but their efforts are not always celebrated. The past year has been quite challenging due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They make sure businesses are in good health, taking many measures. In the fourth edition of FE CFO Awards, Financial Express will once again acknowledge, appreciate, honour and celebrate India’s best financial minds.
FE CFO Awards ceremony will begin at 6 pm on Tuesday. Union Minister for road transport, highways, and MSME Nitin Gadkari will grace the occasion as the chief guest. Nandan Nilekani, non-executive chairman of Infosys, will share his perspective on India’s tech foray and how we can meet the challenges ahead in a fireside chat with FE’s Managing Editor Sunil Jain.
