CFO Live Asks: Will the Sea Change in M&A Cut Finance Chiefs Adrift?

James McVeigh, CEO of Cyndx, to explain how CFOs will be challenged by the new era of digital deal-making


​​​​​As M&A deals continue to shake up industries and redraw competitive landscapes, more weight and responsibility for growth initiatives will fall on CFOs’ shoulders. But are they up to the task of pulling off profitable transactions that generate verifiable synergies?

At CFO Live, CFO Magazine’s signature conference, Cyndx’s James McVeigh will explore the elevated role of the modern CFO in mergers and acquisitions and how identifying the right opportunities and investments will be a key job of finance leaders. McVeigh will also discuss why the digitalization of industries means strategic and financial acquirers will have to assess prospects more quickly and efficiently.

“M&A is at a generational turning point,” says McVeigh, founder and CEO of Cyndx, an advanced AI-driven investment search platform for enhancing capital raising, M&A transactions, and other business opportunities.

“New data and tools are changing the manner in which M&A deals are executed, and CFOs need to know how to leverage them to search for high-return target opportunities and to deliver better post-close outcomes.”

McVeigh’s talk, “The Evolving Role of the CFO in M&A,” will take place on November 14 on the main stage of CFO Live.

Loaded with topics critical to CFOs and other finance executives, the CFO Live conference will bring to life the magazine’s 30-plus years of award-winning finance journalism. The two-day event consists of two stages of thought-provoking talks and actionable insights from senior finance leaders. It will provide a unique forum for attendees to engage with their peers in discussions of the critical and controversial issues facing global businesses.

Other sessions at CFO Live (#CFOLive) will cover leveraging intelligent automation, building an adaptable finance team, creating a digital brand, breaking down organizational silos, forecasting the economy of the 2020s, and taming health care costs. See the full CFO Live program for more information.

The conference takes place November 13-14 at the brand new Convene 225 Liberty Street in New York, just steps from historic Battery Park.
