“The mission of AD HR Services is to connect members with best-in-class service providers, provide them with best practice sharing and professional development opportunities, and create a foundation for a strong AD HR community," said Neil Cohen, AD’s senior vice president of HR. "The Finance & HR Summit strongly supports this mission through its significant networking opportunities, thought leadership presentations and panel discussions on strategic HR topics, and the chance to meet with service providers during the service provider tour."

He added that the Summit agenda was designed so that participants could leave with practical ideas they could implement in their businesses.

“This Summit was a unique opportunity for finance and HR executives from across the industries served by AD to share best practices and learn from experts all while earning credits for continuing education and adding value to their companies,” said Drew Moyer, AD’s CFO.
