New York, NY - Treasury & Risk magazine, the leading monthly business publication for senior financial executives, today announced that Ford Motor's CFO and executive vice president, Lewis Booth, will make the opening keynote speech at the 2010 Alexander Hamilton Best Practices Summit and Awards Program, scheduled for Oct. 28-29, 2010, in New York City.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential and experienced leaders within the auto industry, Mr. Booth will address an audience of over 250 senior-level treasury and finance professionals.
"Ford is one of the big success stories emerging from the financial crisis," said Donna Miskin, editor-in-chief of Treasury & Risk. "Thanks in large part to the deft moves and foresight of its CFO and treasury team, Ford is the only one of the big three U.S. automakers to get back on the road to health without requiring government help or going through bankruptcy. We are delighted that Mr. Booth will deliver the event's keynote and we look forward--along with the attendees--to hearing him talk about Ford's strategy during and since the crisis and the ongoing challenges for his company in particular and treasury and finance in general as we all struggle through this recovery."
