The organization serves as a peer-to-peer networking and discussion opportunity for more than 200 senior financial executives in the Triangle area.

“High unemployment and a very aggressive government enforcement climate make it very important for C-level executives to put these hot-button issues and trends on their radar screens,” say Brett Farabaugh, Tryton Medical, Inc., CFO and RTP CFO Forum board member. “Bob represents many of the most successful companies in the state. He has his hand on the pulse of regulatory action and our members will benefit from his insights.”
