MTE CFO Cindy Layne Selected as 2022 CFO Awards Honoree by NBJ


Murfreesboro, Tenn. – Cindy Layne, CFO at Middle Tennessee Electric, was announced as a 2022 CFO Awards honoree by the Nashville Business Journal (NBJ). To view the complete article, visit here.

To determine the list of honorees, nominations were accepted from the public. Nominees were then asked to submit questionnaires highlighting their accomplishments from the past year and how they kept their company's finances in the black and thriving. An independent panel of judges scored the questionnaires, and those scoring the highest were named to this year's list.

Who are the finance chiefs leading their companies to success? That's the question NBJ aims to answer with its 2022 CFO Awards. Category winners will be announced Oct. 26 at The Renaissance Hotel.
