On Thursday 12th October 2017 our highly acclaimed Treasury Today Women in Treasury Forum returned to New York. This exciting event is one of the annual industry highlights in the USA, London and Singapore and is a firm fixture in the diaries of women and men right across these regions.
The venue was the spectacular Pierre hotel near Central Park and the Forum was attended by corporates and their banking and technology partners from across the US.
The Women in Treasury Forums are a key part of our global Women in Treasury initiative and provide an unrivalled opportunity to personally connect with some of the most successful leaders in our industry. This year’s panel comprised:
Susan Mercer – Vice President, Assistant Treasurer, Cargill, Incorporated
Jenifer Herdin – Vice President, International Treasury, Viacom
Mary Gilbert – Treasury Manager, Duracell
Karen Gilhooly – Executive Vice President, Global Liquidity and Cash Management, Head of Client Management – North America, HSBC
Eric Houser – Executive Vice President, Head of Technology, Media and Telecom Corporate Banking Group, Wells Fargo
This exciting event presented a superb opportunity to hear these renowned industry speakers share their insights and personal experiences and debate some of the key issues highlighted by our Women in Treasury Study. The panel discussion was followed by an open Q&A session, enabling guests to make their voices heard and pose questions to the panel. Coverage of the event appeared in the January/February 2018 edition of Treasury Today.
