Are we a support or resource group?

Editorial by Matt Bud from the May 22, 2018 Newsletter

Like the classic fable of the 6 blind men standing around the elephant, The FENG means a lot of different things to individual members. In part it is dependent on where they are in their career, whether they are active in a search, or if they are currently employed. It can also vary on any given day. Of course we provide support for one another. But, I like to think that the support we provide isn’t the “do it for you” kind, but rather it is our unique ability to be a resource for one another that makes the difference.

Just wanted to remind you of our meeting this coming Wed., 5/23, 5:30 pm.

You will want to carve out the time so as not miss this session, as we have a very special guest speaker, joining us. Bill Schult, a friend, colleague and fellow FENG Member, will be speaking on the topic of "How to Survive as a CFO in the Private Equity World".

Bill's Background:

Bill was most recently Chief Financial Officer of Pro Mach, a leading provider of integrated packaging products and solutions. With more than 20 years experience in global manufacturing and financial services organizations, he has earned a reputation for strong financial leadership of companies expanding globally and in guiding initiatives to improve financial reporting and effectively manage costs.

At Pro Mach, Bill directed the company's financial strategy for long-term profitability and provided the financial guidance to support continued growth and product development goals. He also oversaw the corporate-wide finance and accounting team. Along with other members of senior management, Bill focused on strengthening Pro Mach's position as a leader in packaging value for its customers.

He joined Pro Mach in 2005 from global pigment manufacturer Shepherd Color Company, where he was also Chief Financial Officer. He previously served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for International Knife & Saw, Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of cutting tools with operations in 10 countries. During that time, he strengthened the company's financial organizations and successfully led numerous acquisitions, divestitures of subsidiaries, and initiatives to standardize and improve reporting systems.

Bill also served in several finance and accounting roles for Siemens Corporation in the United States and Europe, where he helped implement new worldwide accounting systems. Mr. Schult started his career providing accounting and auditing consulting services with Salomon Brothers and Coopers & Lybrand.

He is fluent in German with extensive expertise in worldwide accounting practices. He earned his B.B.A in Accounting from Adelphi University and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Host: Matt Sullivan CEO, TalentFlex

Speaker: William Casey Fehl

“A Salesperson’s Approach to Job Hunting – Presented by William ‘Casey’ Fehl, the discussion is based on his 13-year experience as a financial advisor and the similarities of professional sales and job hunting.

Attendees will learn:
A proven, simple, convenient system to track their progress and maintain accountability.
Successful job hunting strategies, based on statistical evidence.
How to handle the inevitable rejection that comes with job hunting and how to bounce back.

More than anything, we will discuss the effectiveness (statistically speaking) of proactively reaching out to people to discuss “your situation” (aka your job search) instead of, for example, applying online and (reactively) waiting for a response.
We also touch on a few things to help people maintain a positive attitude during these tough times.

General Networking

This is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

The objective is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads, ideas, and develop networking opportunities.
As always, this is a great opportunity to network, practice your "elevator" speech with fellow FENG members.

Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please bring:
- Name Badge
- Personal Contact cards
- Resumes
- Your 90-second elevator speech

Attire: business casual

Presentation:
CFO-types who comprise the FENG’s membership work in a variety of industries, forms of corporate organization (sole proprietorship, partnership, LLP, LLC, C Corp, etc.), profit status (for-profit, not-for-profit, unit of government or quasi-government), and ownership structure (private, public, closely-held or widely distributed). Increasingly, fully or partially private equity (PE) owned firms comprise a growing component of the employment landscape for CFOs, and present unique challenges and opportunities.

In this FENG member moderated and presented session, we’ll explore this reasonably recent entrant into the Central Indiana ownership landscape. We’ll explore questions such as: Who are these firms? What makes them unique? What is unique about working there? How is the CFOs role different or similar to other ownership structures? How can one prepare to be a CFO for a PE-owned firm? How does a transitioning CFO gain access to that network? Is it common to go from one PE-owned firm to another as transactions occur? What is the investment/buy/sell process like? And more…

Bring your own questions also!

For this session we’ll have two panelists with long experience in the segment, Matt Howard and Gene Wolf.

Agenda

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

DRESS: informal (jeans are fine)

Please note this is just a few blocks down the street from CentraState Hospital.

COST: This is an informal meeting. We will ask everyone to buy their own coffee and snack and join us at the biggest table we can find.

We look forward to seeing you.
