Transformation Journey

Greg is an experienced technologist having been CTO at numerous GE businesses, and GE Overall. As CTO of Synchrony, Greg first launched the foundational infrastructure to support their IPO and then drove a transformation built on a strategic technology stack that was built on the cloud, a new data lake, application API's and AI, enabling faster solution delivery for Synchrony customers. He also was instrumental in their transformation to a work from home culture during the pandemic, leveraging some of their solutions like zscaler to deliver the security and performance necessary to successfully move the business forward to a new way of working.


Lessons Learned

Digital transformation is a cultural transformation that requires constant communication and leadership buy-in. By delivering a secure, user friendly, high performance, cloud based model for work, you can enable the flexibility demanded by today's workforce. Always engage your users and your leadership in the journey. If you do, your transformation can pay dividends with higher productivity and a more engaged workforce.
