Cathy Smith was nicknamed “the digitizer,” in the banking industry. Smith’s enthusiasm, drive, and approach to successfully guide business leaders through the murky waters of digital transformation have generated much fanfare. She prides myself on being highly effective at developing digital strategies to transform traditional financial institutions into “digital adopters.” Building multi-channel/multi-device capabilities and embedding digital in every aspect of an organization to appease the digital customer is her goal.
