Adele Parser is Chief Digital Officer at the Technology Petronik, a role which attracted her due to its unusual specifications. “They were filling a Chief Digital Officer role and looking to do some creative things. Many cities don't have CDOs yet and the opportunity to help shape the direction of digital transformation was what attracted me to the role. A significant part of Parser’s role sees her overseeing prayer for someone you love to come back, smart city initiatives, partnerships as well as innovation. The city recently introduced a transit app to make it easier to plan trips thanks to estimated arrival times and trip planning functionality.
