The top CFOs and treasurers in CF's 20 anniversary issue

"The similarities of SCC with Enron were purely technical. It was rated, it wasn't off balance-sheet financing for McDonald's, and no-one was unfairly enriched," says a former treasurer of McDonald's and one of CFO's 60 movers and shakers in CF's 20th anniversary edition.

To celebrate 20 years of Corporate Finance magazine we profiled 20 treasurers of the future, 20 CFOs of the future and 20 CFOs of the past. To find out who has most influenced the world of corporate finance, and who is being described below, click on CF's August issue:
