The topic of finance was the focus of a two-day conference held on January 18-19, 2017.
The event, a first for the group, was intended to familiarize financial managers with the group's key companies and to provide an opportunity to collaborate on focus topics from the CFO areas of accounting, controlling, treasury and IT.
The event was attended by members of the group's larger affiliated companies in Germany, Turkey, Poland and the United States, as well as participants representing the group's holding company, Emsland Stärke GmbH. The auditing and accounting services provider PwC was also in attendance.
The Finance Conference featured preparation work for the 2017/2018 planning process and creation of the 2016/2017 annual statement, along with presentations and talks on the projects which were recently launched in the group's CFO departments. An overview of the Emsland Group's product development activities was provided by the Innovation Center in Emlichheim.
The first Finance Conference received exceedingly positive feedback from participants and is set to be held on an annual basis in the future.
