Our guest speaker was Jonathan McKay, an industry veteran with over 30 years of international experience and currently Chairman of Forward Partners, Cambridge Broadband, Driftrock, ISG, Poq and La Fosse Associates. He led the discussion on the chairman’s view of the CFO in terms of fundraising, potential M&A, strategic planning and the growing international responsibilities of the role.
