Anna Frazzetto

A chief digital technology officer and a visionary IT strategist, Anna Frazzetto has a global impact that few leaders can match when it comes to helping businesses expand their digital capabilities and resources in big data, cloud computing and social and mobile technologies.

Serving as Harvey Nash’s global IT solutions and outsourcing strategist, Frazzetto leads sales strategy, solutions architecture, management delivery and support of digital initiatives for a growing client base of 200. Her business partnerships include Hearst Publications, Omnicom Group, WPP, MSNBC, Honda, Hitachi, Jefferies Investments, AllianceBernstein and Clearwire Corp., as well as startups and growing multinationals across North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

Frazzetto’s bottom-line impact on her organization is unparalleled. The winner of Harvey Nash’s “2015 Highest Profit Contribution” award, her contributions represent 40% of the company's profits and 30% of its worldwide revenue. Under her direction, project-based solutions and BPO business have realized five consecutive years of 30% year-over-year growth. Her efforts to expand revenue-generating opportunities in the Asia-Pacific market have mushroomed the past 12 months, now accounting for 50% of company growth and resulting in the establishment of Harvey Nash’s first office in Australia and the signing of its first Hong Kong-based solutions client, in 2015.

In addition to speaking globally on digital innovation, Frazzetto is a tireless advocate for workplace diversity and the advancement of women in technology. She currently serves as the National Chair of ARA, an organization aspiring to attract, retain and advance women in IT.
