TA Hosts 2022 Global CFO Conference
TA, a leading global growth private equity firm, recently hosted its third Global CFO Conference in Washington D.C., welcoming more than 70 senior executives from the firm’s portfolio companies alongside members of TA’s investment staff and Strategic Resource Group.
The two-day event provided a forum for portfolio companies to connect, share best practices and learn from both peers and industry practitioners.
Designed specifically for mid-market CFOs and finance leaders, the conference featured a variety of invited speakers and TA practitioners leading curated sessions and breakout groups. Topics included, among others, the strategic role of the CFO, upskilling finance teams and embracing ‘on demand’ talent, automation for the ‘finance org of the future’, cost-saving strategies and inflation management.
“We intentionally built TA’s Strategic Resource Group around practitioners with diverse consulting, finance and operating experience to provide end-to-end support for our portfolio companies,” said Ajit Nedungadi, Chief Executive Officer of TA. “Our learning events, including the CFO Conference, leverage this team’s insights, resources and network to develop timely, impactful content that we believe will help our companies and management teams reach their full potential. We appreciate the opportunity to convene so many accomplished leaders at this year’s CFO Conference, and thank all who shared their perspectives during the event.”
“Our portfolio company CFOs are not only critical to the success of their individual businesses, but also offer a wealth of experience and industry expertise that can be beneficial across TA’s entire portfolio,” said Kevin Masse, a Managing Director and Chief Portfolio Officer at TA. “The CFO Conference provided a unique forum for these CFOs and our TA team to share knowledge, transparently discuss challenges, and evaluate opportunities for the CFO function to drive value.
