On April 19, 2004 we had the inaugural meeting of Treasury Peer™ (then the “European Treasurers’ Peer Group”) in Brussels with a handful of European corporate treasurers. For a period of time, we had met corporate treasurers wanting to meet peers. Coming from the same background we could easily understand the need and therefore we gathered the first group bringing peers together with the primary goal of meeting difficult challenges. The diversity of the group coupled with real dialogue, creates an environment of trust.
Since 2004 we have grown to the size of three groups in two continents with new members continuously joining. Our format had proven to be the most popular where treasurers actively assist each other to solve issues and address challenges. In the summer of 2011 Susanna Bondéus and Magnus Lind decided to take Treasury Peer™ to another level by further developing the concept and take it out as a separate business from a major consultancy we divested. A major milestone was the expansion outside Europe with our first group in the US.
Treasury Peer™ has grown from being a small group to a forum pushing the boundaries of treasury and having the most influential corporates and the most senior treasury executives joining. The Treasury Peer™ blog is read from all over world, with one third of the readers coming from the US and Europe respectively and one third from rest of the world. We have a considerable and growing network on LinkedIn.
