Chicago, IL—March 7, 2020—A national community and platform for Controllers and corporate Accounting and Finance professionals launches today after months of planning and development. Controllers Council™ is focused on best practice information, career resources, recognition and networking.

Brown. “The community is growing rapidly with new features that will serve accounting organizations nationally, and later globally.”
