Symposium Partner Event in NYC:
CEOs See Technology as Growth Driver; CIOs Don’t… a Discussion

By Administrator | August 16, 2010

The symposium partner,  Center for CIO Leadership, a member driven community to advance the CIO profession, is hosting an exclusive executive event for CEOs, CIOs, CFOs and other members of the C-Suite on Thursday, October 21, 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm in New York City.

  • Salon Theme:  CEOs See Technology as Growth Driver; CIOs Don’t… a Discussion
  • Date:  Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 5:30–8:30 pm
  • Audience:  CEO, CFO, CIO and other C-suite executives

Recent IBM studies show that CEOs view technology as a game changer for the future of their businesses; whereas CFOs and CIOs don’t share this perspective.  This session will feature CEOs, CFOs and CIOs who will discuss this gap and will offer their thoughts on the future that technology will enable in their businesses in 2011 – and what CIOs can do differently to seize the opportunity to lead the way.

Join panelists:

  • Marianne Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer, Omgeo
  • Jim Metzger, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration, TM Forum
  • Lou Trebino, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, The Harry Fox Agency

This exclusive session will also include other leading CIOs and academics that will lead round table discussions that will focus on the perception of technology in organizations and the role that CIOs can take to enable and drive business growth.
