Western Finance Leaders’ Outlook Dominated by Impacts of COVID-19

The Arizona Chapter of Financial Executives International

Industry survey suggests financial executives in the West are more optimistic about the economy than executives overall in the U.S.

I think the results indicate that while financial executives are concerned about the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, they show optimism for their businesses, their industry, and the overall economy.”

— Adam Remis, President of FEI Arizona

PHOENIX, AZ, U.S., June 1, 2020 / — The outbreak of COVID-19 and the corresponding economic downturn has clouded financial leader sentiment in the Western region of the United States according to a survey of executive members from Financial Executive International’s (FEI) Arizona, Colorado, and Silicon Valley chapters. Overall, financial leaders in the Western region indicated that planning for and responding to economic uncertainty was their management team’s biggest priority during Q1. In aggregate, FEI Executive members from the Western region expressed greater confidence in their local or regional economy than the US as a whole, with respective confidence scores of 5.88./10.00 and 4.78/10.00.

"Uncanny timing on our first economic sentiment survey of AZ based financial executives during such economic uncertainty,” said Adam Remis, president of FEI’s Arizona Chapter. “I think the results indicate that while financial executives are concerned about the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, they show optimism for their businesses, their industry, and the overall economy." Respondents from the Western region displayed a trend toward trimming headcounts in the coming quarter with 44.95% planning to decrease headcount and only 16.87% planning to increase headcount. Even with uncertainty surrounding headcount, executive members from the Western region indicated that attracting and retaining talent was their management team’s second biggest priority during Q1. Over the next quarter, the need for talent will only increase as organizations respond to a progressively or acceleratingly disrupted economy. For the finance function, members from the Western region named data management/science as the most challenging skill for their finance function to staff.

Finally, the outbreak of COVID-19 has led many to reconsider their work-from-home or travel policies. 73.57% of FEI executives from the West indicated that they were certain (91% to 100% likelihood) to alter the aforementioned policies.

Financial Executives International (FEI) is the leading advocate for the views of corporate financial management. Its more than 10,000 members hold policy-making positions as chief financial officers, treasurers and controllers at companies from every major industry. The Arizona chapter has more than 260 members and generates more than 50 events per year for its members. FEI enhances member professional development through peer networking, career management services, conferences, research, and publications. For more information, contact Robin Hirth, Chapter Administrator at (480) 496-4010 and/or, or visit the chapter website. The chapter can also be followed on LinkedIn.

There is nothing wrong with the horses, it's the people who need to change."

The Horse/Human Bond is the topic for the First Place Podcast episode. Marty Irby began riding at age 3 and his love of horses grew into advocacy where he now serves as the chief lobbyist and Executive Director of Animal Wellness Action. Certified Instructor and Radio Talk Show host, Jamie Jennings, and Monty Roberts recall their three days of working with Diego, the uncatchable Mustang, subject of the Equus International Film Festival’s featured films .

“It was such an honor to work with Monty,” said Jamie Jennings of the Horse Radio Network and a Monty Roberts certified instructor, adding, "and an even greater one to be able to sit with Monty and Debbie to tell the story."

The New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned horse trainer Monty Roberts is available for interviews.

MONTY ROBERTS first gained widespread fame with the release of his New York Times Best Selling book, The Man Who Listens To Horses; a chronicle of his life and development of his non-violent horse training methods called Join-Up®. Monty grew up on a working horse farm as a firsthand witness to traditional, often violent methods of horse training and breaking the spirit with an abusive hand. Rejecting that, he went on to win nine world's championships in the show ring. Today, Monty's goal is to share his message that "Violence is never the answer." Roberts has been encouraged by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the award of the Membership in The Royal Victorian Order, as well as becoming Patron of Join-Up International. Other honors received were the ASPCA "Founders" award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award and FEI’s Man of the Year. Monty was recently included as Horse and Hound Magazine’s Top 50 Horsemen of All Time. Monty is credited with launching the first of its kind Equus Online University; an interactive online lesson site that is the definitive learning tool for violence-free training.

JOIN-UP philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations. To learn more about Monty Roberts or the many applications of his Join-Up training methods, visit Horse Sense and Soldiers aired on Discovery Military in 2010 highlighting the therapeutic effect horses and Monty Roberts' Join-Up® have on PTSD. Soon after Monty and his team developed the Horse Sense & Healing program for veterans and first responders. Lead-Up International was officially launched worldwide at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in Solvang, California, in February 2017. The purpose of Lead-Up International is to reduce violence in the community by creating peaceful leaders from vulnerable youth utilizing equine-assisted therapy and non-verbal communication, building trust-based relationships.

reSAWN TIMBER co. is proud to be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of ABODO® thermally modified Vulcan cladding and decking products in the USA.

TELFORD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2020 / — reSAWN TIMBER co. is proud to be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of ABODO® thermally modified Vulcan cladding and decking products in the USA.

Based in New Zealand, ABODO prides itself on producing a range of beautiful and durable timber solutions that are safe, sustainable, and renewable. The company has a strong ethos around ensuring its timber is ethically sourced and demonstrates extended producer responsibility. From milling to building, they respect their material, the people who use it, and where it comes from. For every tree milled, Abodo ensures it provides more than 30 years of service, which is as long as it takes to grow a replacement tree.

At reSAWN TIMBER co. we celebrate and visually leverage wood’s inherent tendency to weather over time by designing modern, high-performance, sustainable products that are meant to age in place with grace, so ABODO’s ethos was a natural fit. ABODO’s design ethos has two core components:

Lifetime Beauty
Abodo timbers are crafted to be enjoyed for years to come. Designed to age with grace, the timbers that age in place with grace, while maintaining durability and beauty for a lifetime.

With Tomorrow in Mind
ABODO timbers are harvested from New Zealand’s FSC® certified rapidly renewable plantation forests. They are ethically crafted with respect from beginning to end – allowing us to meet today’s increasing needs without disadvantaging future generations.

ABODO Vulcan Cladding
Vulcan thermally modified wood cladding is created from New Zealand plantation timber and engineered with a patented vertical grain orientation for superior weathering characteristics. A fine-sawn face provides beautiful grain depth and optimal coating performance.

The thermal modification process and vertical grain structure give Vulcan cladding superior stability and reduced resin content. It’s naturally durable so the timber doesn’t require any chemical preservatives, and has a beautiful, consistent brown tone.

Vulcan cladding is available in a range of architectural profiles and it’s supplied pre-finished in Abodo Protector Oil (Abodo’s high performance penetrating exterior oil), so there’s no need to finish boards on-site.

Benefits of Specifying ABODO Vulcan Cladding:
– Outstanding dimensional stability, resulting in less aesthetic maintenance and therefore less coating over the lifetime of the product.

– Vulcan has little or no corrosiveness on most metals (equivalent to untreated softwood) and can be placed in contact with most building materials Normal PVA, PU, MUF glues, and RF resins can be used.
– Expected dimensional change in structure: Width expansion approx. 0.25%, thickness expansion approx. 2.5%. Vulcan is approximately 50% more stable than flat sawn Radiata pine.
– Glue: New generation polyurethane adhesive – VOC, solvent, and formaldehyde-free.
– Thermally modified pine is resistant to most wood-boring insects.
– Weight: 2lbs/sf (lightweight cladding).
– ASTM D5824 – Delamination Resistance.
– ASTM D4442 – Moisture Content.
– Low VOC (85 g/L). * Our STERLING product is 0 VOC.

– Sioo:x One reSAWN TIMBER co. design (Sioo:x) is pre-finished in Sioo:x natural wood coating. Sioo:x is a patented Silicon technology, which silvers off to a beautiful, low maintenance finish.

– reSAWN’s Exterior Oil Finish: One reSAWN TIMBER co. design (STERLING) is pre-finished with a non-toxic odor-free one-coat oil-based sealer for all types of exterior wood.

ABODO Vulcan Decking
ABODO for reSAWN decking is created from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber. It’s treated with an organic preservative system that includes water repellent for superior durability.

The thermal modification process gives the material enhanced stability, reduced resin content, and is a beautiful homogeneous brown color. The premium-grade, reeded face has little to no corrosiveness to most metals and can be coated on site. It’s also compatible with our Sioo:x weathering treatment.

Benefits of Specifying Vulcan Decking
– Natural Stability – Vulcan Decking is manufactured with a vertical grain orientation, which means the timber has great stability, even in harsh conditions.

New tool to help businesses ensure human rights are respected in the COVID-19 response and recovery period



A new tool will help businesses consider and manage the human rights impacts of COVID-19 response and recovery in their operations.

BANGKOK, THAILAND, June 1, 2020 / — Titled ‘Human Rights Due Diligence and COVID-19: Rapid Self-Assessment for Business (C19 Rapid Self-Assessment)’, the newly released tool lists 48 potential actions for businesses to inform their actions based on relevant provisions of International Bill of Human Rights and the UN Guiding Principles. The tool was developed in the framework of the Business and Human Rights programme in Asia (B+HR Asia) which promotes long-term, multi-stakeholder led solutions to address human rights risks in business operations and supply chains.

The C19 Rapid Self-Assessment highlights the human rights risks and impacts that are common to many industries.

Daimler AG plans to use the C19 Rapid Self-Assessment as guidance for recovery
Citibank Japan has translated the document for wider dissemination in Japan
Unilever has shared the tool with their suppliers
Amfori, a Brussels-based business association promoting open and sustainable trade, has sent the self-assessment to all its members
Electronics Watch, an independent monitoring organization, is adapting the tool to prepare an instrument specifically for public buyers, to help them collect information, evaluate suppliers and ensure that human rights considerations are applied throughout electronics supply chains

“The C19 Rapid Self-Assessment offers practical support for both companies aiming to explore whether they do enough to ensure human rights considerations are embedded in their business operations at the times of the COVID-19 response and recovery, and those who are only starting to take the first steps in their human rights due diligence journey as we prepare for the ‘new normal”, added Livio Sarandrea UNDP’s Crisis Prevention and Rule of Law Specialist in the Asia-Pacific region.

At the instigation of several organizations, including the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, the C19 Rapid Self-Assessment has been translated into seven languages—Bahasa, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Thai.

The tool is one of the first outputs of the recently launched B+HR Asia: Enabling Sustainable Economic Growth through the Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework, funded by the European Union and developed in collaboration with the B+HR Asia: Promoting Responsible Business Practices through Regional Partnerships project, funded by the Government of Sweden.

While the C19 Rapid Self-Assessment provides initial guidance, UNDP recommends that all companies consider further steps towards a fully-fledged human rights impact assessment, in response to COVID-19’s immediate and long-term effects on human rights in their operations and supply chains.
