About Financial Executives International
Financial Executives International was founded in 1931 as the Controllers Institute of America. The expansion of responsibilities of financial executives into policy-making areas led them to change their name to Financial Executives Institute in 1962. As the global economy developed, they were the driving force in forming the International Association of Financial Executives Institutes in 1969.
The FEI Nashville Chapter was chartered in April, 1963 at Richland Country Club, a site that the Chapter still uses to this day for events. With nearly 125 members representing a broad spectrum of companies that operate in numerous industries, the Chapter represents the professional association of choice for senior and mid-level corporate financial managers in the Nashville area.
Chapter membership provides the opportunity to interact and network with local senior financial leaders in virtually all industries and company sizes, as well as the chance to engage with top-notch speakers.
