In the beginning ...

Financial Executives International was founded in 1931 as the Controllers Institute of America. The expansion of responsibilities of financial executives into policy-making areas led us to change our name to Financial Executives Institute in 1962. As the global economy developed, we were the driving force in forming the International Association of Financial Executives Institutes in 1969.


 

And then ...

On November 6, 2000, with a name and philosophy change, we became Financial Executives International (FEI) and opened membership to financial executives from around the world. FEI proactively helped design the CFO Act, and has a history of supporting legislation that enhances the business climate.

 

Now ...

FEI continues to be the leading advocate for the views of corporate financial management. Our almost 11,000 members hold policy-making positions as chief financial officers, treasurers and controllers at companies from every major industry. FEI enhances member professional development through peer networking, career management services, conferences, research and publications. Members participate in the activities of 74 chapters in the U.S. and a chapter in Japan. FEI is headquartered in Morristown, NJ, with a Government Affairs office in Washington, D.C.
