“We’re tremendously excited and proud to announce our fourth-annual TakeControl user conference,” said Mike Whitmire, CEO at FloQast, inactive CPA. “Having the opportunity to collaborate with the accounting profession’s best and brightest to discuss industry challenges, success stories, and the future of accounting technology is something we as co-founders look forward to each year. Expectations for accounting teams continue to expand, and I’m genuinely excited to discuss how they’re evolving to meet these new challenges.

Additionally, for the first time, FloQast will recognize a peer-nominated “Controller of the Year” during the event. This prestigious award recognizes an innovative Controller who has helped their organization achieve accounting operational excellence through exceptional leadership and demonstration of significant impact to their business. Nominations are open to all FloQast customers now.

“Controllers are often the unsung heroes of an organization, leading the charge to glean insights from financial data critical to the strategic direction and success of their business,” said Whitmire. “We couldn’t be more excited to recognize one controller that has truly taken the role to a new level, leading by example both in terms of driving ROI and strategy, and being an outstanding citizen in their business and community.”

TakeControl attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 13 CPE credits for their attendance and participation. For the first time, TakeControl will also include sessions for accounting professionals in the EMEA region who can earn up to 4 CPD credits.
