We Heard from American Express Tech Leaders in Phoenix
PowerToFly wrapped up February in Phoenix, Arizona with an evening of networking and learning with tech leaders at American Express. This special and diverse gathering featured an inspiring keynote address, an illuminating product demo, and an interactive panel discussion.
This special evening concluded with more networking time, including one-on-one opportunities to chat with American Express hiring leaders and our night's speakers.
After some delicious refreshments, the night began with introductory remarks by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke, who introduced Danielle Cloud, VP Loyalty Programs at American Express, to deliver the night's keynote address. Once Danielle concluded, we were treated to a special product demo by Sandeep Bose, CIO, Global Risk Managment.
Next up, a panel of American Express leaders sat down with Cristina for an open panel discussion where they discussed their career histories, life at American Express, and such topics as work-life integration. Our amazing panel included:
- Priya Koul – VP Technology
- Nagesh Ramisetty – VP Technology
