CxO 2019: Leaders from Across the C-Suite Tap into the “Network Effect”

Our 2019 CxO conference convened a wide range of executives from Blackstone portfolio companies to exchange ideas, discuss potential opportunities, and build new relationships.

In late May, Blackstone hosted its annual CxO conference for functional leaders at our portfolio companies in areas such as finance, legal, human resources, operations, technology, and procurement. Over 320 “CxOs” attended, representing 88 companies across 16 countries.

The conference provided executives an opportunity to network, learn, and inspire each other with new ideas. This year’s agenda also featured a portfolio company fair and a women’s networking event. Participants highlighted the benefits of hearing from fellow leaders, the support of our women’s network, and the lessons they learned from panel discussions. Our portfolio company leaders also cultivated important relationships, tapping into a large network of cross-industry expertise. Watch our video recapping the conference and the value our CxOs draw from connecting with each other – and from Blackstone’s support.
