Best Finance Team of the Year Award 2022: congrats HB ANTWERP & SWECO!

The annual ceremony honoring the ‘Best Finance Team of the Year’ has become a staple event within the Belgian financial community. This prestigious award celebrates the collective achievements of CFOs and their dedicated teams, emphasizing the collaborative nature of finance.

Unlike individual accolades, the focus is squarely on the entire finance team’s contributions, highlighting the importance of teamwork in driving success. By recognizing the team’s concrete performance and achievements, the award underscores the invaluable role each member plays, even those whose contributions may be less visible.

It serves as a platform for CFOs to acknowledge and reward their team’s efforts, fostering a culture of appreciation and camaraderie within the finance community.

In the category of small and medium-sized organizations, the jury was impressed by HB Antwerp’s dedication to increasing transparency in the sector and the technological innovation they introduced to achieve this. We are talking about a relatively small finance team – approximately 10 people – that has a very significant impact on the business and, who knows, perhaps the entire sector.

The finance team introduced a system to consistently map and track every step in the production process, while also linking it to sustainability reporting. They have proven to embrace new technological solutions such as blockchain and have even had a first experience with NFTs.

Moreover, HB Antwerp’s commitment to innovation extends beyond technological advancements. Their proactive approach to sustainability is evident in their efforts to integrate environmental and social responsibility into their business practices. By implementing systems to track and report on sustainability metrics alongside production processes, HB Antwerp demonstrates a holistic approach to business that prioritizes long-term sustainability.

This dedication not only aligns with industry best practices but also sets a commendable example for other organizations to follow. As a result, HB Antwerp’s finance team not only excels in their day-to-day responsibilities but also serves as a beacon of inspiration for the broader financial sector, showcasing the transformative power of visionary leadership and collaborative teamwork in driving positive change.
