August 22, 2012 – New York, NY – Today, Summit Business Media announced the finalists for Treasury & Risk magazine’s 17th Annual Alexander Hamilton Best Practices Summit and Awards. The finalists will be recognized and participate in the best practices summit, The 2012 awards program introduces two new categories of winners: Editor’s Choice and Middle Market Achievement Awards.

 “We received an overwhelming number of excellent submissions, and the judges were impressed with the elevated level of sophistication of the submission making it harder to select the top three projects per category,” said Tom Duggan, Group Publisher, Treasury & Risk magazine. “This outcome demonstrates the strategic role of treasury and finance executives in creating value for their company’s operations on a global landscape.”

Finding a way to recognize the best practices and achievements of middle-market companies has long been a challenge for AHA. Treasury & Risk and the AHA judges have annually reviewed excellent entries from middle-market companies (with sales revenues of $2 billion and less) whose innovative projects are worthy of recognition but may be overshadowed by the scope and scale of initiatives from multinational corporations, especially those specializing in technology, with vast resources.

Recognizing this year’s growing crop of outstanding entries, especially from middle-market companies, the AHA judges decided to single out the County of Milwaukee in the Technology Excellence category for an AHA Middle Market Achievement award. Inspired by the judges, Treasury & Risk is initiating the Editors’ Choice in Middle Market Excellence AHA Awards in warranted categories.
