Lance to speak at International Conference for Women in Technology on January 21
(Palm Harbor, FL) January XX, 2016 – Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC), the leading post-closing services provider for the nation’s largest financial institutions, investors and servicers, announced today that Erika Lance, the company’s Chief Information Officer, will appear as a featured panelist at the upcoming conference sponsored by Women in Technology International (WITI), the leading global trade organization for women working in technology. The event will take place in Tampa on January 21.
“Technology has changed every facet of the way we live,” Lance said. “CIOs are challenged to deliver quality systems, understand and satisfy stakeholders, balance innovation and budgets, and do it all with the privacy and security of the company’s assets firmly in mind. This can be a challenging field for any executive. I’m looking forward to sharing what I can about how we’ve overcome these challenges at Nationwide Title Clearing.”
Recent studies project that departments other than Information Technology will be selecting and implementing new technologies at an even faster rate than the IT department itself. This is changing the traditional role of the CIO.
At this event, guests will have an opportunity to meet some of Tampa Bay’s most accomplished CIOs and hear them talk about their journeys on the path to CIO, the role mentors played, the challenges of dealing with changing technologies, and the increasing security challenges that always accompany innovations, including the “Internet of Things.”
The general public is invited to attend a panel discussion about the past, present and future of the role of technology with CIOs from top Tampa Bay companies like Wellcare, TECO Energy and NTC's own CIO Erika Lance.
“I’m very proud to see one of the best and brightest technology executives step up to share what she knows with this audience,” said NTC CEO John Hillman. “Erika has been instrumental to our success and I’m certain that the ideas she shares at this important conference will benefit everyone in attendance.”
