Supported by a business with a long history of pushing boundaries, Mario Del Natale, Treasury Director, Global Digital Treasury, Johnson Controls, is open to exploring the potential of AI in treasury. He talks to TMI about his approach to this much-anticipated, and for some, even feared, technology.
Johnson Controls is a world leader in smart buildings. The 140-year-old business offers the world’s largest portfolio of related technology, software, and services to clients in settings such as healthcare, education, data centres, airports, stadiums, hotels, and manufacturing. It employs more than 100,000 across 150 countries and more than 2,000 locations.
Back in 1885, when Warren Johnson set up the business in Wisconsin that would become the global giant that is today Johnson Controls, innovation was always at the heart of his endeavour. A serial inventor, his pneumatic tower clocks, electric storage batteries, wireless telegraph business, and steam-powered luxury cars and postal service trucks were ahead of their time.
