With disruptive technological change increasingly impacting the finance function, the 2017 AFP Executive Institute will focus on helping executive-level treasury and finance professionals create a strategic roadmap for survival. The Executive Institute, sponsored by PNC Bank N.A., is part of AFP 2017.
AFP President and CEO Jim Kaitz will moderate a panel titled, “Preparing the Treasury and Finance Organization for the Onslaught of Disruptive Technology.” As we approach the intersection of new technologies, an evolving finance workforce and an increasingly dynamic workplace, treasury and finance executives cannot afford to turn a blind eye. In this session, experts will discuss how these changes will affect the finance function as a whole. Joining Kaitz are panelists Julia Kirby, co-author of “Only Humans Need Apply: Winners and Losers in the Age of Smart Machines,” Jean Furter, vice president and treasurer for Brocade Communications, and Laurens Tijdhof, a partner with Zanders.
Other AFP Executive Institute sessions include:
- Technology and Risk Management, featuring John Drzik, president of global risk and specialties, Marsh and chair of the Global Risk Center, Marsh & McClennan Companies
- Fighting Global Cyber Threats, featuring Deborah Guild, chief security officer and chief information security officer for PNC Bank and Thomas Grasso, Supervisory Special Agent, FBI Cyber Division
- The U.S. Legislative and Regulatory Agenda and Capital Markets, featuring Tom Quaadman, executive vice president of the Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

“Keeping abreast of the fast-pace of technology enhancements and innovations challenges every organization today, but technology supporting the financial function, which is critical to ensuring the ability of a business to sustain itself and grow, demands special attention. We applaud the AFP Executive Institute for bringing special attention to disruptive technology as we continue to develop treasury management technology solutions for the future,” said James Graham, head of treasury management at PNC Bank.
