2022 Controller of the Year Awards Program – Call for Applicants

Chicago, IL—December 1, 2022—The annual Controller of the Year™ Awards is now accepting applications. The program recognizes effectiveness and achievements of Controllers and related roles/titles including Comptrollers, Chief Accounting Officers, CFOs, Vice Presidents, and other corporate finance executives. The 3rd annual program is produced by the Controllers Council, a member association and community focused on training and career development, peer interaction, and recognition.

Registration is now open for the 2022 Controller of the Year Awards, and is free to both Controllers Council members and non-members. Registrants may self-nominate, or nominate a colleague or peer via a brief, online survey form. Registrants must select from 7 categories for company size and type (Small/Medium/Enterprise/Startup/Not-For-Profit/Government/Other; Public vs. Private). Registrants anonymously submit brief information about 2022 financial performance, work experience, volunteer or philanthropic activities, and educational background.

All registrations are then screened by an algorithm to identify finalists by category. Then a blue-chip panel of judges select the Controller of the Year by category, and ultimately a national 2022 Controller of the Year (and Comptroller of the Year). Winners will be announced by February 15, 2023, and all winners will receive a frame-quality Certificate. The National 2022 Controller of the Year will receive a gold-plated and engraved statuette/trophy manufactured by the makers of the Oscar® Awards. A Controller Awards Gala Event is scheduled for March.

“Responsibilities of Controllers and corporate finance executives continue to be more demanding and important in 2022”, states Neil Brown, Controllers Council Executive Director. “The annual Controller of the Year Awards gives much deserved recognition to these important executives.  Winners share their remarkable journeys at the “must see” 2022 Controller Awards Event.”
