Meredith Hobik

Head of Finance Solutions

Finance drives the business. However, many financial departments are unable to keep up with the required pace of change. Speed, precision, and alignment are required to drive effective financial planning. By optimizing plans, companies are able to solve complex planning and modeling problems, forecast accurately, reduce planning time cycle, and propel future growth—ultimately, connected financial planning is the key to success.

The finance track at Hub17 provides an opportunity to learn more about how you can build a strong connected planning ecosystem at your company. This year’s track will feature sessions for wherever you are on your Anaplan journey.
