Margo Georgiadis, president of Americas for Google, will serve as the keynote speaker for the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce's 112th Annual Meeting, to be held in June at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
“We are honored to have Margo Georgiadis, who stands out for her commitment to the City of Chicago and its technology community, serve as the keynote speaker at our annual meeting,” Theresa Mintle, president and CEO of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, said. “As the leader of one of the world’s top tech companies, she is at the forefront of understanding what it takes for businesses to achieve and sustain success in today’s digital economy.”
Georgiadis heads Google’s commercial operations in North and South America. She has also held other roles within the company, such as leading global sales operations and being in charge of Google Wallet and Google Places. Before working with Google, she was the chief operating officer of Groupon.
"With over 650 employees in our new office in the west loop, Google is honored to call Chicago home," Georgiadis said. "As a native Chicagoan and lover of all things tech, it's incredibly exciting to see all the innovation happening in neighborhoods across this city -- and we're proud to be a part of it."
