NEW YORK, NY – November 21, 2017 – As companies push ahead with digital transformation strategies, the CIO plays a critical role in guiding and monitoring the success of these initiatives. The CIO’s role in tracking the returns from digital investments as the Chief Technology Economist will be a focal point of the discussions at the upcoming 2017 Financial Services CIO Executive Leadership Summit produced by HMG Strategy, to be held on December 5, 2017 at The Westin New York in Times Square in New York, New York.

“The financial services industry continues to undergo massive disruption,” said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy’s President & CEO. “To help guide their companies in the right direction, CIOs must identify new revenue and value-creation opportunities by reimagining the future state of the enterprise, delivering courageous leadership, and by nurturing a culture of genius to propel the business into the next era of the digital age.”

The Financial Services CIO Executive Leadership Summit will kick-off with a thought-provoking executive keynote featuring Dr. Howard Rubin, Owner, Rubin Worldwide, MIT CISR Research Associate and Professor Emeritus at Hunter College of New York who will share the emerging patterns and benchmarks for digitization in the banking and financial services sectors and examine why the CIO is destined to assume the Chief Technology Economist role in their organizations as leaders and advisors for establishing IT monetary policy.

Other compelling sessions will include an executive search panel that will examine the key attributes that enable best-in-class financial services technology executives to succeed; an executive panel featuring David Campbell, Managing Director – Merchant Banking Division and J. Ram, Managing Director, Cloud, Apps & IT Services, both from Goldman Sachs, that will explore advancements in financial services technologies that are enabling companies to gain a competitive edge and speed-to-market opportunities; an executive panel that will focus on best practices for balancing cyber security with agility and innovation in financial services; and an executive panel that will probe how financial services companies can leverage digital technology advancements to drive business value and create new business value.
