With the pace of innovation reaching mind numbing speed, executives are struggling to lead their organizations to stay on top. Where is future innovation going to come from and how do can we stay one step ahead? So what, now what?
Currently a Global Principal Advisory Consultant with Amazon Web Services, Vincent Perfetti will share his career experiences in multiple business verticals and how he’s successfully embraced innovation – both incremental and disruptive. As a former CTO and Strategist, Vincent has successfully led the cultural and the technical transformations at Dow Jones, The New York Public Library, Citicorp, Prudential Bach, and most recently at GE Digital. He will share his perspective on where digital innovation is making the greatest impact on today’s enterprises and what you should be focused on to ensure you are leading from the front.
Vincent is a first generation Italian-American who believes in lifelong education. After graduating from The Bronx HS of Science he completed a Presidential scholarship at Manhattan Engineering, earning his BS in Electrical Engineering. Vincent took a hiatus graduate school to become the first participant in Prudential Bach’s Executive Management program for Technology graduates.
Vincent spent several years on Wall street before joining Citicorp as VP North America to create the Remote LAN Operations Center. After transforming their technology operations and spearheading the Project Enterprise outsourcing effort, Vincent joined The New York Public Library (NYPL). There he spent the next decade helping redefine how NYPL leveraged technology to evolve and embrace the shifting innovation in consumer technology.
Vincent then joined Dow Jones where he helped transform their global new rooms, limiting business risk exposure, and establishing a cloud adoption program that transformed how they delivered digital news products. Building on his experience with innovating through cloud adoption, GE recruited Vincent to build their first enterprise global cloud center of excellence supporting the 9 tier one GE businesses. There he established such programs as the App Studio, internal enterprise architecture CAB and BOT army to help GE accelerate their cloud adoption.
Vincent now serves as Global Principle Advisory for Amazon Web Services (AWS) where he is extending his experience with cloud and digital innovation for large enterprise customers.
