The GM Financial executives addressing the summit:
- Bruno Paiva, senior vice president of digital marketing, will lead the “Digital Innovation Lab” workshop on Oct. 20 from 2-2:30 p.m. Central time. The intent of the session is to help participants develop innovative ideas for digital platforms that help mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
