#GENCFOsummit will be back in 2024

Chris Argent

Founder & CFO (Chief Future Officer), GENCFO Ex CFO & Finance Transformation Consultant, now Founder of GENCFO, the #1 community in the world, and Creator of the Digital Finance Function Awards

About this speaker

Chris saw the need for a unifying framework that could bring together traditional accounting and finance and the new data-enabled digital finance function. So, he developed the Digital Finance Function Model (DFFM), initiated events, podcasts and networking meetups to establish Generation CFO as the go-to platform.

Today, GENCFO is a community of over 100,000 members – and growing rapidly. We produce experiences, content and thought-leadership interviews on The Shift. By keeping accounting and finance professionals at the cutting-edge of finance function, we are creating heroes of the current and next generation.
