The world's largest independent and most trusted provider of executive networking events and thought leadership announces its 2018 World Tour and highlights its expansion into venture capital, research services, executive adventures, and peer-to-peer advisory services.


WESTPORT, CT – January 30, 2018 – HMG Strategy proudly celebrates its 10-year anniversary this month by thanking the thousands of executives and hundreds of business partners that have made its incredible journey so successful.

An idea 30 years in the making, HMG Strategy launched its first two events in 2008. HMG Strategy now produces 60+ executive leadership events in 30-plus markets across North America and Europe. This year, the company has launched the HMG Strategy 2018 World Tour which introduces transformational business technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) companies that offer tremendous potential for accelerating B2B relationships and tap into new markets.

For instance, Inxeption is a blockchain-based software platform founded by a group of former Oracle executives that helps transform manufacturing companies of all kinds into online and on-demand businesses.

This is only the first of many exciting developments at HMG Strategy. Over the past three years, HMG Strategy has launched a series of executive services that are aimed at helping CIOs, CTOs, Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Digital Officers, and other technology executives to work effectively with the CEO and the board of directors to lead, reimagine, reinvent and disrupt the business and foster a culture of genius for business success.

“Just as the discussions between CIOs have evolved over the past 10 years, the HMG Strategy business model has also advanced to mesh with the 360-degree needs of technology executives,” said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy’s President & CEO. “Our international network of more than 300,000 technology leaders, venture capitalists, search executives, and technology partners brings industry thought leaders together to help determine the content for our summits, the foundation for our research agenda and, most importantly, the business challenges and best practices needed for top-tier technology executives to excel in today’s hyper-competitive business environment. I’d like to personally thank each of the technology executives and business partners whose contributions have accelerated HMG Strategy’s success.

Recent executive services that HMG Strategy has launched includes HMG Ventures, HMG Strategy’s venture capital arm which connects CIOs and technology executives with the most innovative new companies and entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley to Tel Aviv, Israel. HMG Strategy has partnered with several blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) companies that offer incredible opportunities for expanding into new markets and stimulating new waves of growth.  

Meanwhile, the HMG Strategy Resource Center is a destination for HMG Strategy’s technology executives and business partners to share their thought leadership via research articles, white papers, blog posts, e-books, case studies, research reports, and other content with HMG Strategy’s network of 300,000 premier executive leaders.

The Resource Center also contains video interviews with industry thought-leaders, photo galleries from previous events, the award-winning Transformational CIO blog series, press releases, and books authored by executive rock stars.

One of the unique programs that HMG Strategy has ushered in is the CIO and CISO Executive Leadership Alliance (CELA).  The CELA program is an exclusive peer-to-peer executive forum led by Hunter Muller and Ramón Baez, former SVP, Customer Evangelist, Hewlett Packard Enterprise who is now Executive-in-Residence and CIO Evangelist at HMG Strategy that’s focused on tackling the top challenges being faced by CIOs and CISOs. CELA provides off-the-record straight talk to enable leading technology executives to strengthen their decision-making capabilities to help them drive the business forward and to power their career ascent.

Complementing the CELA program are the CELA Executive Decision Support (EDS) Services which connect enterprise CIOs and CISOs with their peers who are able to offer their expertise, practical experiences and advice for tackling today’s top leadership and technology challenges.

As part of its commitment in helping technology executives to grow on both a personal and professional level, HMG Strategy has also launched HMG Adventures, a set of high-energy events for passionate technology leaders who are looking for new ways to connect with their inner selves and discover fresh approaches to expand their leadership, courage, innovation, transformation, and reinvention capabilities on the path to genius.

Over the next 12 months, HMG Strategy is developing executive retreats to:

  • Snowbird for a world-class skiing experience
  • A heart-pounding Formula 1 Grand Prix race in Monaco, the playground for the rich and famous
  • World Cup skiing in Killington, VT
