Chicago, Illinois (June 13, 2016) – Anna Frazzetto, Chief Digital Technology Officer and SVP at Harvey Nash, will deliver the keynote address at CxO Disrupt: The Evolution of the C-Suite. Harvey Nash, the global IT outsourcing and professional recruitment company, will also sponsor the event, which will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, at Google Chicago. Organized by i.c.stars, a Chicago-based non-profit organization and social enterprise that prepares young adults for technology careers and community leadership, CxO Disrupt is a one-day networking and thought leadership event that will focus on building collaboration within the C-Suite and beyond to harness the disruptive transformation rapidly occurring in technology and marketing.

“By examining the CIO/CMO relationship, this forum will showcase how critical collaboration is to success, especially in our new digital environment,” said Frazzetto. “At Harvey Nash, we are also looking at the growing role of the Chief Digital Officer. This position is often the missing piece for companies pursuing a truly integrated business model that aims to use digital technology to engage with customers and generate new revenue streams.”

The event will kick off at 5:00 p.m. with a fun mixology team exercise that will blend the concept of building a brand with building a cocktail. Frazzetto will then share results from the Harvey Nash/KPMG 2016 CIO Survey as they relate to collaboration among technology, marketing and the C-Suite. There will also be a series of “dynamic duos”–CIOs/CMOs who will discuss the intersection of marketing and technology at their respective companies, as well as how they are becoming change agents.

The CxO Disrupt lineup includes the following speakers:

  • Welcoming remarks from Mike Wons, Chief Technology Officer of the State of Illinois
  • Keynote from Anna Frazzetto, Chief Digital Technology Officer, Harvey Nash, that focuses on collaboration between the Chief Digital Officer and other C-Suite executives
