About The India CFO Awards

IMA India instituted The India CFO AwardsTM in 2001 to recognise distinction in finance and honour those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding capabilities and achievements by combining the imperatives of business leadership and excellence together with those of integrity and sustainability.

Over the years, the Awards have been announced in various categories that reflect best practices and financial excellence across different businesses. The premier category is the CFO of the Year Award - for the CFO whose strategic contribution to his corporation is overwhelming in terms of his ability to partner the CEO in decision making and creating unique value addition.

Each year, The India CFO AwardsTM are supported through sponsorship by organisations which see merit in the profile of participation at the Awards and equally, appreciate and understand the importance of the finance function. The India CFO AwardsTM aim to provide sponsors with a unique opportunity to gain profile and exposure amongst the ‘right’ audience. The Awards provide sponsor companies an opportunity to demonstrate an explicit commitment to the CFO community across industry sectors and segments. The India CFO AwardsTM reflect the sponsor company’s commitment to excellence, achievement and intellectual pursuit. To that end, they offer an avenue to get recognised as a corporate committed to these values. In a methodical manner, The India CFO AwardsTM seek associations with sponsors who can provide financial assistance, but more importantly, who can provide valuable intellectual guidance, while also be viewed by the audience as ‘thought leaders’ in their area of expertise.

The India CFO Awards have been executed successfully for several years. We are now in the process of announcing the launch of The Tenth India CFO AwardsTM.


Each year, we receive close to 350 nominations from various business sectors and industries. Each nomination is studied and analysed carefully by the Jury, which then shortlists a few finalists in each category. The Jury then meets for a day to discuss these finalists, and basis those discussions and further analysis, the winner in each category is decided. This process is spread over 2-3 months, and is a very detailed and focused exercise.


  • A pre-eminent Jury
  • Exposure to over a 2,000-2,500 CFOs in the run-up to the Awards (as a part of call for nominations, call for participation in awards ceremony, etc)
  • Interaction and association with a cross section of the short-listed CFOs
  • Close interaction with the Jury and the winners
  • An Award ceremony that brings together approximately 200-250 of India's senior business and finance leaders

The Tenth India CFO Awards

The Finance community’s role in driving company strategy and subsequently, growth, has grown manifold. The past five years have demonstrated a strengthening of this trend. Core finance objectives, with increasing compliance requirements have become but one part of an overarching expectation by boards and CEOs of CFOs, and by CFOs of themselves, to guide strategy, profitability and growth. Launched in 2001 by IMA, The India CFO Awards have always sought to recognise and reward this increasing, and sometimes still unsung, role played by CFOs.

We are delighted to announce The Tenth India CFO Awards in association with Pierian Services. The India CFO Awards are recognised across industry not just for the brilliance they seek to honour in the individuals nominated and awarded, but also for the excellence they have been part of – and contributed to - in the firms they represent. The India CFO Awards 2016 will be adjudged by a strong 9 member panel including CEOs, CFOs, academics and previous winners.

There are nine categories of Awards and the overarching CFO of the Year Award.
