NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The rapid pace of change that's sweeping across the financial services industry, accentuated by market disintermediation and the comprehensive overhaul of the financial regulatory system, are creating enormous challenges and opportunities for industry CIOs to drive revolutionary transformation and innovation across the enterprise. CIOs and industry thought leaders will weigh the impact that these forces are having at the 2015 Financial Services CIO Executive Leadership Summit, produced by HMG Strategy, LLC and held on November 19, 2015 at The W Hotel Union Square in New York City.

"Tighter regulation of banks, coupled with the steady tempo of new market entrants, is placing increased pressure on traditional financial services companies to remain competitive," said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy's President and CEO.  "Forward-looking CIOs are leveraging their unique, horizontal view of the enterprise to help the C-suite identify effective ways to engage with empowered customers and respond quickly to emerging market opportunities to drive new sources of revenue growth."
