From CFO to CEO: A conversation with Blue Apron’s Brad Dickerson and Deltek’s Michael Corkery

Words like nimble, adaptable, and insatiably curious are just some of the attributes that have been associated with what it takes to make it as a successful CEO.

You, on the other hand, have made it to the highest level in finance because of your stability and dependability along with your ability to keep your team within the bounds and following the rules.

To be a successful CEO, according to the experts, you need to go from rule follower to rule maker (and sometimes rule breaker!) – how do you make this metamorphosis from CFO to CEO– do you have what it takes?

Join us on February 26th and hear from two very distinguished CEO’s (former CFOs), Michael Corkery, CEO, Deltek and Brad Dickerson, CEO, Blue Apron, as they share their journey. 

Find out what measures it took for each of them to go from the finance function to ultimately landing in their current role as CEO.
