Country Ambassadors

The Global Corporate Finance Society (GCFS) is a policy-based member-funded organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Country Ambassadors

Our GCFS country ambassadors are picked to help grow and connect the corporate finance network in their own country.

As country ambassadors, their roles include helping with event hosting in their community, becoming finance advocates to provide answers for the finance community, and answering questions from FMVA students in their country.
