Boston, MA – September 17, 2020 – Syniti, a leader in enterprise data management, announced today the launch of a global weekly podcast series, the “CEO TO CEO Podcast.” This new podcast focuses on delivering exclusive insights for complex, C-suite challenges, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures (MA&D). The series will feature interviews with some of the world’s top CEOs and thought leaders, many of whom led history-making transactions.
The podcast will launch Wednesday, September 23, 2020, featuring in-depth, conversational interviews with leaders like:
- Joe Tucci, former Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of EMC Corporation, now Dell EMC, and Chairman and Co-Founder of Bridge Growth Partners
- Paula Tolliver, former Corporate Vice President and CIO and CDO of Intel Corporation and former Corporate Vice President of Business Services and CIO at the Dow Chemical Company, and
- Josh Moffitt, Founder and President of Silverton Mortgage
“History has proven that during times of rapid changes and unknowns, such as the 2008 financial crisis, organizations look to MA&D to both protect and grow their business,” said Kevin Campbell, CEO of Syniti and host of the podcast series. “We are pleased to launch this new podcast series to help companies face these challenges with an insider’s perspective, and help business become more resilient through M&A&D.”
According to EY’s Global Capital Confidence Barometer, in today’s economic environment, more than half of executives globally are opting to transform through transactions and plan an acquisition this year. McKinsey & Company also reported that companies that regularly and systematically pursue moderately sized M&A deliver better shareholder returns than companies that don’t.
“The complexities of MA&D are daunting every time,” said Chris Knerr, Syniti Chief Data Officer. “Data is increasingly essential to delivering successful transactions. We are bringing together leaders who have successfully led global transformations to dive deeper into the power of data to accelerate time-to-value and greatly reduce execution risk. With more than 24 years of business expertise in data and end-to-end conversion technology, we’ve seen firsthand how data can increase transparency, drive business value capture, and support integration strategies that speed and smooth business transactions of all sizes.”
According to Edison Research, podcasts reach over 100 million Americans each month. “Podcasts are available where the listener is, whether at home, commuting, in-between business meetings, after dinner or with early morning coffee,” said Rex Ahlstrom, Syniti Chief Strategy & Technology Officer. “By leveraging this medium, we can further help business leaders access critical insights from top M&A&D practitioners wherever they are – at home, in the office, or on-the-go.”
