CFO Studio & Real Estate Strategies Corporation to Again Sponsor NJBiz CFO-of-the-Year Competition in 2012

(Somerset, New Jersey): Andrew Zezas, SIOR, the host of CFO Studio, Publisher of CFO Studio Magazine, and CEO of New Jersey based Real Estate Strategies Corporation, announced today that CFO Studio and Real Estate Strategies Corporation will again sponsor the NJBiz CFO-of-the-Year Award Competition in 2012.  The competition, which will include CFOs from small, mid-sized, and large public, private, and not-for-profit companies from around New Jersey, will commence in the Spring of 2012. The competition will culminate at an awards ceremony, to be held on October 30, 2012.  The NJBiz 2011 CFO-of-the-Year Award Ceremony was held on October 25, 2011, at The Palace in Somerset, NJ, where over 400 executives attended and 7 winners were selected.

“The NJBiz CFO-of-the-Year Award has become a very important event in the New Jersey business community.  It brings tremendous prestige to both Finalists and Winners!” said Andrew Zezas. He continued “The competition and the awards ceremony are certainly best-in-class and bring out the most successful and brightest CFOs in New Jersey. As sponsors of the competition, and through our efforts at CFO Studio, we are able to draw on our deep relationships among the New Jersey CFO community to add to, what is already a dynamic competition, ceremony, and the awards. In 2011, we secured a number of high profile nominees for the CFO-of-the-Year Award, many of whom became finalists. Even before CFO Studio and Real Estate Strategies Corporation became a sponsor of the competition, in 2010 we nominated Gunther Mertens, CFO of Agfa Corporation, who became a finalist.  In 2009, we nominated Marty Latman, CFO of Lansco Colors, who won the CFO-of-the-Year Award for Community Service”.  Zezas added “We’re very excited about our continued sponsorship of the NJBiz CFO-of-the-Year Award in 2012, and anxiously look forward to nominating worthy CFOs and to congratulating 2012’s winners!”
