Topic: Merger + Pandemic = Successful Treasury Projects

Description: Merger & Acquisition activity across all sectors creates challenges for corporate treasurers who must provide strategic support before, during and after a transition. After the merger of Gannett and GateHouse in late 2019, integration of the 2 companies kicked into high gear in early 2020. Within just weeks, the team found themselves with an unexpected , unprecedented challenge; the world was in the midst of a global pandemic. In this session we will learn what it was like to transition a major project into a remote environment. The session will discuss the considerations and consolidation involved with various treasury platforms including Accounts Receivables, Accounts Payable and Treasury Systems. The session will also review lessons learned and offer advice for doing business in, a now commonplace, remote working environment.
