Who are Gartner experts?

Gartner experts are the people behind the research our clients trust. Gartner experts extract insights from qualitative and quantitative research and from thousands of CFO interactions every year. As unbiased leaders in the finance field, Gartner experts serve as conference speakers, advisors for conference attendees and research facilitators.
