Associate CIO Position Highlights

The Associate CIO serves as the second-in-command and the chief operating officer of the IT organization, responsible for the design, development, release and maintenance of technology systems and services for all enterprise business functions. This technical, operations-centered senior IT executive role is seen as a trusted partner of the organization in leading IT to become a highly reliable, business-oriented organization. With the associate role focusing on the “run” aspect of IT, this enables the CIO to focus on the “grow” and “transform” aspects of IT, through working with customers, building strong relationships with senior management and key stakeholders, driving innovation and differentiated IT strategy, and improving the business value of IT. In the absence of the CIO, the Associate CIO will serve in the full capacity of the CIO role.
