As Executive Vice President, Global CIO for McDonald’s Corporation, Daniel Henry manages the technology portfolio and partnerships that are transforming customer and employee experiences and accelerating business growth worldwide. The global technology organization powers the industry-leading capabilities—from restaurant and digital technologies to business infrastructure and platforms—touching more than 64 million customers a day across 36,000 restaurants across the globe.

In this era of disruption with rapidly changing customer expectations, McDonald’s is committed to making technology investments to deliver the best experience for both customers and employees. Self-order kiosks, digital menu boards, mobile order and pay, and integrated delivery have fundamentally reshaped the restaurant environment, and the technology organization continues to innovate platforms, ecosystems, and tools to roll out more capabilities faster.

Prior to joining McDonald’s, Daniel held progressive technology leadership positions at American Airlines. There, he was responsible for all customer-facing technologies—ecommerce platform, loyalty platform, call center platform, airport solutions, mobile app, and kiosks—supporting operations for the world’s largest airline.

Today, Daniel works alongside senior leadership and market leaders worldwide to bring the Accelerating the Arches plan to life and create real, sustained value for the organization. This technology-focused growth strategy looks to build on McDonald’s culture of innovation and recent acquisitions to accelerate growth and shape the future of the world’s largest restaurant chain.
