In a joint announcement today, Financial Executives International (FEI-Atlanta), and Frazier & Deeter announced a strategic partnership to provide greater depth and resources to the Southeastern CFO community.
“FEI is considered the leading advocate, peer-to-peer networking organization, and resource for the CFO community,” said Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter. “As a leading CPA firm in our region, we have constant interaction with leaders in the finance community and CFOs. It is important for the Southeastern CFO community to have access to world-class resources so they can keep their fingers on the pulse of CFO best practices, key business trends, and establish and maintain business connections they need to be successful. Frazier & Deeter believes in the mission and vision of FEI, and we feel we can add value to their efforts in a way that directly benefits our clients and the business community.”
“FEI, as a recognized business leader, and Frazier & Deeter, as one of the country’s top CPA firms, have a strong philosophical alignment in our desire to bring more resources to the CFO community in our region,” said Jim Wanserski, Incoming President of FEI’s Atlanta Chapter, which is the largest in the Southeast. “Our partnership and collaboration promises to not only bring new strategic partners to our organization but to bring a new wave of CFO participants.”
“Many CFOs in our region are not aware that there is a viable and affordable resource for them to connect professionals who may be facing similar problems and challenges,” said McDaniel. “We believe that the CFO is often overlooked and underappreciated, but we firmly believe a vibrant CFO community is good for all concerned. FEI delivers exactly what our CFOs have been seeking and we are excited to be supporting FEI’s efforts.”
“Our relationship with Frazier & Deeter has developed over time as the firm has invested resources with us over a number of years,” said Wanserski. “FEI and Frazier & Deeter will be working together to bring more resources and engage the financial community in new ways, in our city Georgia and the entire Southeast. It is critical to have a strategic partner that shares a common vision of how important the CFO and financial expertise are to the business community.”
