The Financial Executives Networking Group was founded in 1991 as a forum for senior financial executives to share job opportunities and experiences. Members have held titles such as Chief Financial Officer, Controller, Treasurer, Managing Director, as well as Vice President of Tax, Mergers & Acquisitions, or Internal Audit.
Under the leadership of its Chairman, Matthew R. Bud, The FENG has grown from a small Connecticut based organization to one with over 45,000 members spread across the entire United States and internationally.
Their members currently represent the senior financial management of over 8,000 private and 2,500 public companies:
• Over 40% work at companies with sales over $500 million
• Over 55% work at companies with more than 500 employees
The FENG is organized geographically with chapters in almost every major city in the United States. They have active international chapters in London and Toronto. Members also join various “special interest groups” organized by 21 industries and 13 financial functions (e.g. Treasury, Tax, Internal Audit, etc.). This matrix approach maximizes each member’s networking opportunities to enhance and manage their career.
Featured on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, and in The Wall Street Journal, The FENG is a nationally recognized organization for senior financial professionals. Membership is currently growing at an annual rate of 15%.
