CFO took six American Society of Business Publication Editors Northeast Regional Awards at a banquet in New York City last night. Five of the awards were for design, specifically honoring Robert Lesser, CFO’s art/design director.

Lesser received two gold, two silver, and one bronze award for graphics excellence. The golds were for an illustration in an opening page or spread (“Fit to Be Tied”) and for a computer-generated front cover (“Getting There From Here”). The silvers were for an opening page or spread photo (“Going for the Other Green”), for which Laura McFadden was also honored, and for a front-cover photo (“Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fraud”). He also received a bronze award for a photo for an opening page or spread (“Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fraud”).

On the editorial side, the magazine’s Topline section was honored with a silver award for editorial excellence in a regular section. Scott Leibs, Marielle Segarra, and Kate O’Sullivan were singled out for their work on the section in the July/August, September, and October 2011 issues.

The ASBPE will present its national awards later this year.
