Tedesco, Nate, Lyons To Co-Chair MFM CFO Summit


FORT LAUDERDALE — The Chief Financial Officer for Beasley Media Group is being joined by the EVP/CFO for Bonneville International Corp. and the SVP/Controller and Treasurer of The E.W. Scripps Co. as co-chairs of the upcoming Media Financial Management association’s 2020 CFO Summit.

Marie Tedesco, Kent Nate and Doug Lyons will play key roles in the presentations and schedule of events tied to the premier event, scheduled for March 5-6 at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, located just north of Fort Lauderdale Beach and famed locale Elbo Room.

The annual CFO Summit marks its 14th year in 2020 and provides an exclusive forum with what MFM calls “real solutions to the challenges that CFOs face every day.”

Confirmed topics include an update from the Federal Reserve; an equity analyst’s look at cybersecurity concerns for media businesses; the future of media; local advertising; podcasting; political advertising issues and outlook; leadership; and a CFO roundtable.

“The rapid pace of change continues to keep media industry CFOs on their toes,” said Mary M. Collins, president and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, which serves as the media industry’s credit association. “Each of our co-chairs was charged with translating these challenges and opportunities into actionable business strategies for industry-leading media organizations and our conference attendees will reap the benefit of their leadership of this year’s conference.”
