  • 11-2-15 Ralph Balestriere of Red Wing Shoes

    in Management

    Today we are pleased to welcome Ralph Balestriere. Ralph is Chief Financial Officer, Redwing Shoes. He graduated from Boston University with a degree in Accounting and Finance, then spent 17 or 18 years at CR Bard, a large global medical technology company, and was steadily promoted to become VP and GM International Finance and Administration. He went on to become CFO at Marconi Medical Systems and Teleflex Medical. I’ve known Ralph for about 10 years and we’ve had a lot of interesting conversations in that time. One of the things I like about him is that he is so unpretentious. What you see is what you get with Ralph.

    I thought he would be a good guest for our program for two reasons:

    Most of us (who aren’t finance executives) would probably admit that we don’t always understand what our CFO is thinking?
    Ralph is a proven CFO with an excellent track record. And I believe he can help us understand what CFOs think and why. I suspect it will soon be evident that Finance executives are pretty much like the rest of us; and in the final analysis, they are on our side.
