This week’s guest is Keith Lubell, CTO for Berkery Noyes, an M&A investment bank based out of midtown Manhattan. When it comes to talking innovation, Keith is one of my favorites to chat with. While fully invested in the day-to-day issues of technology, he always has an eye on new advancements and techniques. For this conversation, we look at Facebook’s Libra token and how regulators are setting their sights on the so-called Big Tech companies. We also delve into both newer and older programming languages, and how finance firms are using them. And he examines how semantic data and technology are becoming increasingly useful.

Additionally, Keith has worked for the Department of Defense, was an unemployed musician and painter, and now heads tech for an M&A bank. To read about how all of those experiences are connected, click here.
