I am thrilled and energized by the success of our 2022 Detroit CIO Executive Leadership Summit yesterday, co-produced with SIM Detroit. The theme for the in-person event was Leading Boldly and Authentically – Inspiring Trust and Winning in the Global Digital Economy and we assembled a truly world-class roster of rock-star speakers, presenters and panelists. Kudos and congratulations to all involved!

You can view the complete program and agenda here. Meantime, here’s a quick overview of yesterday’s amazing summit and fascinating executive panels:

  • In an exclusive fireside chat, Mamatha  Chamarthi, Global SVP of Software and Business Management at Stellantis, spoke about how she has drawn upon her business and technology expertise to excel in her current role, how she is leading a charge to achieve 20 billion (Euros) in revenue by 2030 through a new set of mobility and software services, as well as the business technology leadership lessons she has learned along the way.

  • Following my interview with Mamatha, I moderated a compelling executive panel discussion on Accelerating Your Winning IT Strategy with World Class Technologies and Partnerships, with Arun DeSouza, Chief Information Security & Privacy Officer, Nexteer Automotive Corporation; Luis Giraldo, RVP, Business Value Consulting, OutSystems; and Chris Voce, Strategist, Value Advisory, Citrix.
