REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Top visionary executives from Netflix and Acxiom will join best-selling author and venture capitalist Ben Horowitz as headliners at the Tidemark Finance Hero Series. The half-day event is hosted by Tidemark, maker of the next generation cloud-first business planning and enterprise analytics solutions.

The Tidemark Finance Hero Series explores a new breed of enterprise performance management (EPM) that enables organizations to drive predictable growth in an era of increasingly rapid change through cloud, mobile and big data technologies. For CFOs and finance executives, making the right technology decisions and investments to drive growth and revenue has never been more important.

Ben Horowitz, co-founder and partner of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, will provide his views on how transformational companies are leveraging modern technologies to better compete in the digital era. He will also discuss his new book, "The Hard Thing About Hard Things" that draws on his own story of buying, running, selling and managing technology companies. Event attendees will receive a free signed copy of Horowitz's New York Times best-seller. The Finance Hero Series will take place at the Menlo Park headquarters of Andreessen Horowitz, one of Silicon Valley's leading venture capital firms and a Tidemark investor whose portfolio also includes Airbnb, Box, Facebook, Oculus, Pinterest and Twitter.

Christian Gheorghe, founder and CEO of Tidemark, will discuss how in today's constantly changing business world, the challenge of creating and maintaining predictable growth is what keeps CEOs and CFOs up at night. He will provide his vision of how executives can solve modern business problems with truly modern solutions.

An interactive panel discussion led by Tidemark president and COO Phil Wilmington will feature Tidemark customers sharing their first-hand experiences at managing and accelerating growth and performance in rapidly changing environments. The panel will feature:

  • Netflix vice president of IT Operations Mike Kail, whose fast-growing company maintains an "everything is mobile" culture, and where cloud-based solutions are becoming crucial to ongoing scalability.
  • Chris Garber, vice president of FP&A at Acxiom, where a growing commitment to enterprise data, cross-functional analytics and cloud-based services has helped the company achieve scale and profitable growth.

"For finance and operations executives in all industries, the time has arrived to become the agents of positive and profitable change within their organizations," said Gheorghe. "This event offers the perfect opportunity to seize that moment and learn from the very people who are using Tidemark's modern planning and analytics to drive success at some of the world's most respected companies."
