CFO itself has won many previous honors from the ASBPE, including 2003’s Magazine of the Year. “Our editorial staff is dedicated to providing CFO readers with information they can’t get anywhere else,” said Julia Homer, CFO editor-in-chief. “We are pleased to see our commitment to our product and our audience recognized by the ASBPE.”

"CFO.com’s award for Overall Web Publication reflects not only the information we provide, but how we provide it," adds Dave Cook, editor of CFO.com. "Our editorial team builds on the monthly issues of CFO magazine with daily news and original, online features. And our technical team continues to design new ways of presenting that content, delivering it to our readers, and helping them make sense of a vast storehouse of information."
