Chicago, IL – January 27, 2020 – In today’s fast-paced, ever-shifting global economy, savvy executives realize that it’s not just disruptive competitors that threaten a company’s success. It can also be their own willingness and ability to reinvent existing business models, mindsets and cultures. CIOs can help their businesses tackle such challenges—from both inside and outside the organization—and pave the way to success by uniting emerging technologies with process redesign, forming strong alliances with the C-suite and board of directors, and setting a culture of innovation first.

The trailblazing mentality and fearless leadership skills demanded by these times will drive the discussion at the HMG Strategy 2020 Chicago CIO Executive Leadership Summit, taking place on March 5, 2020, at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park.
