    John Rossman, CIO Leadership: HMG Strategy's 2018 CIO Summit of America in New York

    NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Change is the only constant in business today. Every industry is being disrupted and only those companies that respond quickly and are willing to disrupt themselves will succeed in the next era of the digital age. The CIO is at the center of business transformation where he or she is expected to help the CEO and the board to identify how technology can be leveraged to fuel innovation and create new business models. As a result, the CIO's role in building a culture of innovation to enable the company to succeed in the age of disruption will be the dominant themes discussed at the upcoming 2018 CIO Summit of America, produced by HMG Strategy, to be held on March 28, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York, N.Y.

    "We live in an era of digital Darwinism where only the best and most adaptable companies will survive," said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy's President & CEO. "To help their companies to succeed, CIOs must enable the enterprise to become more agile, collaborate closely with the CEO and the board, and foster a culture of genius to reimagine and reinvent the business."

    The industry's foremost CIO Leadership conference, which shines a spotlight on the best and brightest technology leaders, will kick-off with a series of hard-hitting, 20-minute HMG Lead, Innovate, Disrupt Tech Talks. The first will feature former Amazon executive John Rossman, Managing Partner, Rossman Partners and author of The Amazon Way Series. Rossman will share how Amazon fosters a culture of innovation, with lessons that are applicable for executives across industries.

    Other HMG Lead, Innovate, Disrupt Tech Talks will feature Jedidiah Yueh, Founder and Chairman, Delphix and author of Disrupt or Die: What the World Needs to Learn from Silicon Valley to Survive the Digital Era. Yueh will detail why classic business books such as The Innovator's Dilemma and The Lean Startup are failing businesses worldwide along with the mindset that executives need to adopt to succeed with digital disruption. Yueh's presentation will be followed by an executive interview with CTO Koby Avital.

    Other captivating sessions will include an executive panel featuring Marc Hamer, Corporate VP, Digital and Global CIO, Sealed Air Corporation; Earl Newsome, VP & CIO, Praxair, Inc.; Mark Moore, COO/Co-Founder, Inxeption; Larry Quinlan, Global CIO, Deloitte; Jim Swanson, CIO, Monsanto Company; Sigal Zarmi, Vice Chairwoman, Global CIO, PwC and moderated by Ramón Baez, Former SVP, Customer Evangelist, Hewlett Packard Enterprise who is now CIO Evangelist at HMG Strategy that will explore what it takes to lead, reimagine and reinvent the enterprise along with opportunities for working with fellow members of the C-suite to identify how cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, analytics, and cloud can be harnessed to drive innovation.

    Additional outstanding sessions will include an enthralling executive interview between HMG Strategy President & CEO Hunter Muller with Michael Kay, the Emmy Award-winning New York Yankees play-by-play announcer and YES Network host; an executive panel that will explore winning strategies for implementing a framework for digital disruption; an executive panel that will share valuable approaches for providing distinctive customer experience that can differentiate the brand; a panel of top venture capitalists that will examine the leadership competencies required to succeed in today's fast-paced and disruptive business environment; an executive panel that will assess emerging technologies that are driving speed to market and a competitive edge; a panel of leading search industry executives that will scrutinize the key attributes that make some technology executives more successful than others; an executive briefing by Jim Routh, CSO, Aetna; and an all-star panel of top technology executives who will share their experiences as to how courageous leadership can create value and generate new waves of business growth in the modern enterprise.
