Known as “the Pulitzer Prize of the business media,” the esteemed Jesse H. Neal Awards recognize editorial excellence in independent business publications. "The reporters and editors at CFO.com work hard every business day delivering analysis and the latest news about corporate finance," said Tim Reason, Editorial Director of CFO.com. "We have a lot of fun doing that, but it is a tremendous added boost to be recognized with such a prestigious award." The awards exemplify the American Business Media mission: to enhance the knowledge and best practices of leading media companies that provide quality information for business and professional markets worldwide.
The award is given to the editorial staff – Dave Cook, Sarah Johnson, David Katz, Marie Leone, Tim Reason and Helen Shaw – which has helped bring previous recognition to the site as well.
