Eaton China Honored with Two CGMA Annual Awards 2017

The CGMA Annual Awards, also known as the “Finance Oscars”, were held recently in Shanghai. CGMA is a professional management accounting designation that was created by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). CGMA carried out a months-long online selection for the awards, involving almost 100,000 voters. After fierce competition and rigorous monitoring, counting and auditing by Ernst & Young, 10 enterprises and 14 people were honored with awards, among which Eaton received two awards.

Jin Yan, CFO, Eaton Asia Pacific, received the “CGMA Annual Award 2017 - Financial Pioneer”, which aims to commend financial leaders who have made outstanding contributions in China. As one of the longtime heads of Eaton China, Mr. Jin has witnessed Eaton’s growth in China and contributed tremendously during the process.

“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the CGMA, judges from universities, and especially the Eaton financial team! It is because of your hard work and great efforts in 2017 that Eaton China won these two CGMA awards. The past is not yet gone, but the future has already come. Let’s continue to lead the changes in 2018,” Mr. Jin said at the awards ceremony.
