Treasury & Risk magazine, the leading monthly business publication for senior financial executives, today announced the finalists for the 2009 Alexander Hamilton Best Practices Summit and Awards Program, Scheduled for Oct. 28-29, 2009, in New York City.

Now in its 14th year, the awards program recognizes excellence in finance and treasury management and honors the best and the brightest from corporate America's treasury and finance departments. Treasury & Risk's esteemed editorial staff and distinguished panel of judges selected the finalists in the 10 award categories and the best overall winner from a record number of entries.

"We are impressed with the quality and caliber of the submissions we received. Treasury and finance executives have taken on a greater leadership role in helping to steer their companies through these challenging economic conditions and that is reflected in the award entries we have received," said Donna Miskin, Editor-in-Chief of Treasury & Risk magazine.

The finalists will present their projects at the Best Practices Summit, where the first place winners of each category will be announced.
