Best practices for analyzing and renewing your healthcare plan.  Level funding and other win/win topics will be discussed.

October 24, 2017

A CFO Plus is the co-pilot and trusted advisor to the CEO and this requires top flight finance organization and the proactive analysis, generation of alternatives and solutions and the ability to influence or lead across the organization.
