Press Release from April 18, 2016

NEW YORK (April 18, 2016) - Anna Frazzetto, Chief Digital Technology Officer & SVP at Harvey Nash, will present as a keynote speaker at the 4th annual NYC CDO Summit on Wednesday, April 27th at Thomson Reuters. The event focuses on the growing voice of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) as a critical decision maker and board room influencer; the top challenges and opportunities in digital; and understanding and capitalizing on digital's latest trends.

Frazzetto will keynote "The Rise of the Chief Digital Officer, Our CEO of the Future." Her presentation will include data from the yet-to-be released 2016 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey report, with real-life examples and research from close to 4,000 global businesses.

"The rise of the CDO has been exponentially fast! So fast in fact, no other role comes close in comparison growth wise - not even the CIO," said Frazzetto. "The work of the CDO is reshaping strategic leadership across businesses of all sizes and industry. The expansion of the CDO role is only just getting started."

Additional NYC CDO Summit speakers include Linda Boff, CMO of GE; Jonathan Becher, CDO at SAP; Kevin Bandy, SVP, CDO at Cisco Systems; Kevin Eagan, GM of IBM Digital; Larry Kramer, Director at Harvard Business School Publishing; Graham Waller, Research VP at Gartner; Matt Johnston, CMO/CDO at Applause; and Anne Myong, CFO, Walmart eCommerce. The event is hosted by the CDO Club, the world's largest community of c-suite digital and data leaders.

"The need for Chief Digital Officers and an effective digital transformation strategy only continues to grow, in every sector. We're proud to be partnered with such amazing organizations and speakers to bring this timely and important event to New York for a 4th year in a row," said David Mathison, CEO of the CDO Summit and the CDO Club.

The first CDO Summit was held in New York in 2013. Other events have been held in London, Amsterdam, and Sydney, and the CDO Club is planning CDO Summits in Washington, DC and Toronto. Each CDO Summit event addresses the challenges and opportunities arising from big data, the cloud, digital disruption, and social and mobile media.
