Written by Michelle Caffrey, Philadelphia Business Journal

IBM’s inaugural Chief Marketing Officer and the former CEO of luxury shopping website Gilt will headline IMPACT 2016, the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies’ annual capital conference, as the massive event’s keynote speaker.

PACT, an affiliate of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, announced Wednesday Michelle Peluso will close the conference’s first day on Nov. 29.

The former CEO of both Gilt and Travelocity will speak to the benefit of disruptions in industries and draw on her extensive executive experience for the conference, which is expected to draw more than 1,000 to the Sheraton Downtown Philadelphia Hotel and Crystal Tea Room.

“What I’m looking forward to hearing most is really how her career has evolved to where it is today and what is that entrepreneurial spirit she started with that launched her to various successes,” said Sean Denham, the office managing partner of Grant Thornton and chairman of IMPACT 2016.
