New York, N.Y., June 29th, 2017 – Chris Jones, Durante Rentals Co-Founder and CFO, was honored with the 2017 Small Market Companies: Thinking Big Award at the 2017 CFO Innovation Conference. The awards ceremony and dinner were held before hundreds of executives at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and honored some of the sharpest CFO minds in the country. CFO’s received recognition in fourteen CFO-focused categories with finalists and award recipients selected by an independent panel of judges.

The Thinking Big Award celebrates the CFO who has overcome the small company mind-set, has instilled a sophisticated management style into the company, and has inspired leadership, employees, and partners to grow and succeed despite limited resources and against larger and more formidable competitors.

“My journey as CFO of a construction equipment rental company has been an interesting one, with many learning curves along the way, especially since my background is in tech, media, and not-for-profits,” said Chris Jones. “Being honored with this prestigious Innovation Award is something near and dear to myself, my partners and my staff as Innovation is one of our company’s four core values. We take extreme pride in each department’s innovative approach to running the day to day business and are grateful for the recognition by CFO Studio and their business development partners.”
