CIO Leadership: HMG Strategy, the World’s #1 Executive Leadership Network, Looks Ahead to its 15th Year of Spectacular Growth, Unique Thought Leadership, and Community Gratitude

12/31/2021, 7:26 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

WESTPORT, Conn., Dec. 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HMG Strategy, the world's #1 digital platform for connecting technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is enthusiastically looking ahead to its 15th consecutive year of growth and success, fueled by its distinctive events for global technology executives, the continued growth and loyalty of the 400,000+ technology executives in its community, a grateful approach to community give-back and an unparalleled recognition awards program.

“When the world changed in March 2020, we were the first to pivot to a digital events model. We’ve since held nearly 200 digital and in-person events and have differentiated the event experience for the world’s leading technology executives,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO. “Our in-house team is truly amazing, and we are eternally grateful to the top-tier technology executives, speakers, advisory board members and partners who make our platform second to none. We wish everyone good health, safety and success as we all look ahead to a brighter 2021.”

Hunter Muller and the HMG Research Team are excited to be rolling out a set of peer-driven, future-focused executive advisory services that are aimed at helping CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, CISOs and other business technology leaders to lead successfully in the C-suite, in the boardroom and with line-of-business executives.

Unlike traditional analyst-led research which is typically developed by former executives who are out of touch with the macro-economic issues that are shaping the business landscape and the priorities of the C-suite, HMG’s Global Leadership Services Stack is a distinctive set of peer-focused advisory services that draw off the collective wisdom and real-world insights of actual practitioners – the top global CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, CISOs and business technology executives who are spearheading business and cultural change across their organizations.

“CIOs, CISOs and other business technology executives in the HMG community are telling us that the analyst model is stale and isn’t responsive to the ever-changing business climate,” said HMG Strategy’s Muller. “As we’ve seen with our CIO & CISO Executive Leadership Alliance (CELA) program and other forums that we host, the best and most actionable insights come from current technology executives – and that’s what we’re delivering.”

HMG Strategy’s Global Leadership Services Stack includes the following new services and enhancements:

  • The HMG Global CXO Actionable Insights Service. This unique subscription-based offering provides corporate technology executives with timely and in-depth peer-driven research reports, executive profiles and roundtable discussions on the top macro-economic trends impacting enterprise businesses and C-suites today – and tomorrow.
  • The HMG CIO & CISO Executive Leadership Alliance (CELA). Launched in 2010, HMG’s CELA Program is the industry’s leading peer-to-peer executive leadership community for technology executives to brainstorm together on critical business challenges and to accelerate their careers. Coming to the CELA program in 2022 – hands-on leadership enhancement workshops with Stephen M.R. Covey, bestselling New York Times and Wall St. Journal author and leader of the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice.
  • The HMG Leadership Development Academy. Designed for up-and-coming corporate technology executives, this five-month program offers practical advice and personal coaching on how to manage a P&L, sharpen boardroom communication skills, drive innovation across lines-of-business, effectively manage tech debt and other vital skills needed by tomorrow’s tech leaders.
