Video Testimonials, FinTech Innovation Assembly 2017
“The Assembly has been great. I’ve really enjoyed being able to talk to the other executives and hear their stories about some of the challenges they’re facing. Being able to meet with some of the solution providers has been really beneficial and I’m going to take a lot away from it.”
Mark Kwapiszeski, EVP Digital & Security Technology MasterCard
“The quality of the sessions has been very good; very good speakers with very good experience, sharing that experience which provides great added value - the keynote speakers were very impressive.”
Jean Pierre Champigny, CIO Crédit Industriel et Commercial
“I would definitely recommend the conference and invite other FinTech executives to attend and share their information. I think that in the future Financial Services is going to be about a bigger ecosystem, with different partners and FinTech companies and I think that this conference really gives you a chance to have those kind of conversations and talk about the future.”
Jennifer Sepull, CIO USAA
“The Assembly has been fantastic – it’s created an ecosystem by bringing together tech leaders who are dealing with the same problems. The quality of discussions has been excellent. There is a very high calibre of technology and business leader attending, who understand the domain of the problem.”
Sanjeev Kumar, MD Cognitive & Data State Street
“The quality of discussions have been awesome. We’ve had good roundtable discussions, when we’ve had dinner or lunch and even after the evening session, we’ve been able to talk about the things that are affecting us on a daily basis and what we’re looking at strategy-wise long-term. We’ve been able to work together, create some new relationships and work towards common goals that are affecting us all, and share that information.”
Kevin Pilgrim, President Technology Services First Financial Bankshares
