Technology - Ongoing advances in new technologies — such as in-memory computing, the cloud, analytics, mobility, business intelligence (BI), and process automation — offer CFOs an exciting opportunity to redesign what the finance function can and should look like. In addition, many CFOs are now leading the effort in driving adoption of these technologies more broadly in the organization, and in leading the transformation that ensues from technology innovation.
Christopher Macies is the Finance Director for Sidewalk Labs, an Alphabet company that imagines, designs, tests, and builds urban innovations to help cities meet their biggest challenges. Sidewalk Labs mission is "reimagining cities from the internet up." Sidewalk Labs is currently planning Sidewalk Toronto, a joint effort by with Waterfront Toronto, to combine forward-thinking urban design and new digital technology to create people-centric neighborhoods that achieve precedent-setting levels of sustainability, affordability, mobility, and economic opportunity.
Christopher completed B.A. in Architecture and Economics at Columbia University, and his MBA at Columbia Business School's Executive Program (expected May, '18). Prior to joining Sidewalk Labs, he began his career at Deloitte, where he was part of Deloitte’s CFO Program, which aimed to develop next generation finance leaders. While at Deloitte he was focused on helping organizations build capabilities to delivery large scale infrastructure and capital projects, drive organizational design changes and implement innovative operating models within the finance organization, and deliver CFO Transition Labs to help the CFO be successful in their new role.
