Why Mastercard could be the key to a global network of smart cities as it recruits New York’s former CTO
The former CTO of New York City is paving the way for Mastercard to become a global leader in the development of future cities.
Miguel Gamino, who is also the former CIO of San Francisco joined Mastercard in May to take on the newly created role of Head of Global Cities. He is now running the company's City Possible network which aims to bring together CIOs and city leaders to create more connected and inclusive urban environments around the world.
Sixteen cities are becoming founding members of the global City Possible network including Athens, Baltimore, Dubai, Dublin, Helsinki, Honolulu, Kansas City, Melbourne, Prague, and San Diego.
For more on what Mastercard has planned to pull these cities together and to recruit more to the programme plus how Gamino's previous roles have set him up to take up this new position, listen to Emily Wright and Sam McClary's interview with him on this edition of Tech Talk Radio.
