FEI’s 9th annual Hall of Fame Gala marked a special moment for the Twin Cities Chapter, as Bob Ryan, former CFO for Medtronic, became our first chapter member to be inducted into the Hall.
Bob’s induction came alongside two other honorees – Robert T Blakely, former CFO for WorldCom, and Gaylen Larson, former Chair of COSO. Bob Ryan is only the 26th person to have been inducted into the FEI Hall.
The induction was celebrated in New York City at a Gala fundraiser for FERF – the FEI Research Foundation. Over 210 guests were on hand to celebrate the careers of the three exemplary financial executives, and over $100,000 was raised to support FERF’s mission.
