When I grow up I want to be a CIO, said no child…Ever! Yet, “How do I get to be a CIO” is a question asked by many IT professionals on a daily basis. In his new series, Jeff Ton, EVP of Product and Service Development for Bluelock, will explore the careers of CIOs from across the country and around the globe.
The Path to CIO can be as varied as there are people and industries. Each month we will examine the career of a CIO. What steps did they take to reach the office? What do they see as the key skills they developed? What key decisions did they make in their career that lead them there? Who were the people that had the most impact on their journey to the top of the IT ladder? And what of the changing role of the CIO? How do these leaders see the role evolving? What new skills will be needed?
