CFO magazine, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, was recognized for "General Excellence" in the small-magazine category, defined as magazines with fewer than 500,000 subscribers. In their remarks, judges said, "CFO magazine aims its coverage squarely at its audience, and does so well. The topics covered are current and relevant, the layout is attractive, and the articles are just the right length for the subject matter. This entry is particularly strong when the size of the staff is taken into consideration."
"We're very proud of our editorial team, led by Julia Homer, EVP, chief content officer, and founding editor of CFO," said Frank Quigley, president & CEO of CFO Publishing. Added Scott Leibs, editor-in-chief of CFO magazine, "The editorial team has worked extremely hard to cover not only the unfolding financial crisis, but a radically changing business landscape. It's very gratifying to be recognized along with the country's most prominent newspapers and magazines as having provided our readers with a consistently strong publication month in and month out."
