This popular in-person event will also explore the megatrends that are helping to shape next-generation business models


Westport, CT — May 5, 2022 — HMG Strategy, the World’s #1 digital platform for enabling technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to be hosting its 2022 Florida CIO Executive Leadership Summit on May 12. HMG Strategy’s highly interactive events bring together the world’s most distinguished and innovative business technology and security leaders to discuss the most pressing leadership, innovation, strategic, cultural, technology and career challenges and opportunities that they face today – and into the future.   

The 2022 Florida CIO Executive Leadership Summit, which will take place at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista South, will bring together the industry’s top technology and industry executive from across Florida who will explore meaty topics such as the future of the centralized IT organization amid changing business and technology environments.

“For years, industry pundits have questioned whether the IT department is still needed. This topic has taken on new life in today’s digital-first business environment where some are advocating for the decentralized management of technology initiatives by business-focused technology-enabled teams,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO at HMG Strategy. “Regardless of how this plays out, it’s clear that technology is the backbone of today’s business and there has never been a better time to be a technology leader.”
