Atlantic Health System CFO Leads Discussion on the Affordable Care Act
from a CFO Perspective at CFO Studio Dinner

SOMERSET, NJ – On January 20, 2015, Kevin Lenahan, CFO of the Atlantic Health System led a discussion entitled, “CFOs Inspiring Management and Employees to Benefit Under the ACA.”

Some of the tri-state area’s top financial executives attended the evening filled with good food, good drinks and great networking, courtesy of WithumSmith+Brown, a regional tax and advisory firm. Real Estate Strategies Corporation, a corporate real estate advisory, consulting M&A and transaction service firm hosted the CFO Studio Executive Dinner, which was held at Roots Steakhouse in Morristown, NJ.

Held just a couple of hours before the President’s State of the Union address, dinner conversation may have dipped a toe in the political waters once or twice, but largely remained focused on pragmatic approaches to dealing with the impact of the ACA on businesses of varying sizes.

Lenahan spoke about how the ACA has created urgency for healthcare systems to transform aspects of their business models in order to stay fiscally healthy. Other discussion participants spoke about the pros and cons of health exchanges as well as how they are wrestling with the financial challenges of having more employees qualify for the company insurance plans and dealing with the excise or “Cadillac” tax that many companies may face in 2018.

An article detailing this discussion will appear in an up coming issue of CFO Studio and on

The next CFO Executive Dinner will be held on February 10th, 2015. The Dinner’s discussion leader will be Bill Flynn, Chief Financial Officer of Sharp Electronics Corporation and the topic will be “Managing Financial Performance and Global Business Culture in American Subsidiary.” To request an invitation, please contact or phone: 732-868-0000 x118.
