Our 15th annual CFO of the Year Awards was a great success! Guests helped us honor the Winners and Finalists for the 2021 CFO of the Year, including 2021 Hall of Fame – Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Mark Hawkins of Salesforce.

This year’s event was different from the previous years. In order to ensure our guests’ safety, we required proof of vaccinations as well as masks and even provided a livestream option for those who couldn’t come.

We are so grateful to our guests for showing up — whether in-person or virtually — to celebrate Bay Area CFOs especially after a challenging year. Mark delivered a moving acceptance speech, as did the many winners who took home trophies that night. Our youth speaker Zemaye Jacobs impressed the audience with her speech about living through a pandemic and graduating with dual degrees last May. Our Larkin Street Press, Xander Moore, interviewed finalists during the reception, helping our livestream guests who couldn’t be there get to know the CFOs.

Thank you all for joining us and for another spectacular celebration of Bay Area CFOs. More than 250 business leaders attended in-person and virtually, raising over $500,000 for Larkin Street Youth Services! Learn more about the event and the finalists from the San Francisco Business Times’s Special Section.

We hope to see all of you again next year!
