ShopKeep, the cloud-based technology solution that transforms an iPad into a smart, connected cash register that is used by more than 23,000 independent businesses, today announced that Michael DeSimone, Chief Executive Officer, will participate in a panel presentation during the 19th Annual Global Technology Leadership Forum, presented by KeyBanc Capital Markets.

The panel, entitled “E-Commerce: Brick and Mortar Turning Digital,” falls within the Internet Consumer & FinTech track of the forum and is scheduled to take place at the Vail Village in Vail, Colo. on August 7 at 4:00 p.m. Mountain Time. With consumer spending increasingly shifting towards e-commerce, establishing an effective digital presence has grown critical for businesses – particularly for small and medium size merchants. This panel will feature DeSimone, joined by industry leaders and experts across the retail and financial technology sectors, exploring the consumer- and technology-driven evolution occurring in commerce and sharing insights on the necessary success dynamics for businesses in today’s digital age.

DeSimone is a global chief executive, with more than 25 years of experience working within the financial services and technology industry. Prior to joining ShopKeep, Michael was President and CEO of Borderfree, where he was responsible for the overall strategic direction including the company’s transformation from an online currency conversion service to a provider of global ecommerce solutions. He led Borderfree through its successful IPO in 2014 and its sale to Pitney Bowes in 2015.
