The CFO Alliance Accelerates Growth With Expansion in Houston, TX

​Based upon increasing demand from its Members, The CFO Alliance – the leading peer advisory network for more than 8,000 CFOs and qualified finance executives representing middle market and emerging enterprises from diverse industries and North American markets – has announced its Houston market expansion by hosting its inaugural roundtable on October 1, 2019.

“The decision to expand our presence into Houston was a logical step in the business growth strategy for The CFO Alliance, and was driven by the increasing desire from our current Members to enhance connections to their finance peers in Houston and to the Houston market at large,” said Nick Araco, CEO of The CFO Alliance. “This expansion of The CFO Alliance into the Houston market will provide finance leaders from emerging and middle market enterprises access to all that the Houston market has to offer. Houston is the U.S. energy headquarters, a global center for virtually every segment of oil and gas, and home to one of the most important industrial bases in the world, currently ranking No. 2 in manufacturing GDP in the U.S. From energy to health care and life sciences, to manufacturing and aerospace, the Houston metropolitan area offers a dynamic footprint that drives these thriving, core industries.”

“Now more than ever, finance executives from across North America must focus on what matters most to the enterprises we lead and serve,” said Erik Carrozza, Texas native, CFO Alliance Global Advisory Board Member, and CFO and CAO for Royer Cooper Cohen Braunfeld, a law firm offering a distinctive combination of practical business acumen, legal expertise, and entrepreneurial passion. “Our peers from the Houston market will certainly add to our best practice sharing and benchmarking on the 4 Pillars that drive top line, bottom line, and shareholder value performance – the intersection of People,  Strategy, Technology, and Risk – and will benefit from enhancing their connectivity to finance leaders from emerging and middle market enterprises from across North America.”

In addition to its investment to drive this market expansion, The CFO Alliance will work with current Strategic Partner, Insperity, headquartered in the Houston area, to support this market expansion by connecting finance leaders within the community to The CFO Alliance.

“We are pleased to welcome The CFO Alliance to the Houston market,” said Jay E. Mincks, Insperity executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We will continue to offer Members a comprehensive array of HR products and services to help take their businesses to the next level and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. In addition, we look forward to introducing Houston-area business and finance leaders to the valuable benefits of membership in The CFO Alliance.”
