Michael Haghighat, Joseph Hirsch, and Ms. Deepa Gupta from Globalview Advisors attended the Orange County Chapter of Financial Executives International (OC-FEI) Dinner Meeting held at The Pacific Club in Newport Beach. This final membership meeting before the summer break featured Annual Scholarship night, where outstanding finance and accounting students from local universities were recognized. These individuals are the future leaders of both industry and hopefully FEI. This year, OC-FEI awarded $16,000 in scholarships, made possible by FEI members’ and sponsors’ generous contributions at holiday party auctions, as well as through the chapter’s Hamilton tickets sale.

The night closed with a presentation by Kevin Demoff, Executive Vice President of Football Operations and Chief Operating Officer of the Los Angeles Rams. Kevin discussed the Rams off-season and what it is like to run the operations of a NFL team.

The evening’s Professional Development Session was presented by PwC on the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—What You Need to Know.” The 2017 Tax Jobs and Cuts Act (2017 Act) is the largest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in 31 years, and the benefits should be broadly felt by organizations large and small as well as individuals. Successful implementation of the 2017 Act is expected to be a top priority for companies this year. The session provided insight into what tax reform means for your organization and individuals; lessons learned so far; and the key takeaways to make the most of the new rules.

Globalview Advisors has been a proud sponsor of the OC-FEI since 2013, as well as the San Diego Chapter since 2012. The OC-FEI is the premier organization for financial executives in the Orange County area. OC-FEI promotes interaction among its members and holds programs and workshops to enhance their professional knowledge and qualification.
