LA Chapter of Financial Executives International Announces Monthly Meeting For Members
LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Los Angeles chapter of Financial Executives International (FEI) held its monthly meeting Thursday, April 21, at the Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles. This month's meeting featured a presentation by distinguished speaker Lisa S. Thompson, vice president of the Strategic Pricing Group, Inc. The presentation was titled "Don't Just Set Prices, Manage Them Strategically" and addressed many pricing issues facing companies from a CFO's perspective. The key point of the discussion was that many companies erroneously believe that something is wrong with the price of their products or services simply because some customers tell them that their price is too high. Included in the presentation were several options for senior executives to use to better understand their customers' businesses and how to price their deliverables accordingly, maximizing profits.
