PLANO, TX – November 5, 2018 – NTT DATA is pleased to announce Kris Fitzgerald, the company’s vice president and chief technology officer, has joined the ranks of leading senior-level technology executives on the Forbes Technology Council.

Fitzgerald joins other hand-selected members to become part of a curated network of successful peers. Through an intensive selection process, Forbes recruits and invites members not just on the basis of career success, but on diversity of perspective and willingness to give as much as they gain.

“We are proud that Kris has been selected to share his deep industry expertise on Forbes.com as a regular contributor,” said Eric Clark, President and Chief Digital Officer, NTT DATA Services. “Kris’ business acumen combined with more than four decades of industry experience make him the perfect addition to such an elite thought leadership program.”

Fitzgerald recently released his first Forbes article, RPA and conversational automation: a dynamic duo of business bots, which discusses how businesses can pair automation technologies to streamline processes, control costs or increase customer satisfaction. He speaks to how RPA, conversational automation and other emerging technologies can work together to help create more meaningful work, more satisfying customer experiences and greater business value overall.
