There has been a rise in the role of the CTO /CIO who are mainly officers leading the function of Technology and Information in organizations. This rise is directly linked to the growth in technology and its implications for all aspects of business. The way we do business has changed exponentially due to business. Such transformation needs a strong individual who understands this space, can analyze the trends and share insights which can either grow the business or protect it.
When we hire for a CTO/CIO, our endeavour is to make sure that the person is holistic in their thought process and not simply a technical expert. Technology is impacting even company culture or direct business revenue. In such a scenario, the need is to ensure that the individual who is hired to lead this function has well-rounded experience and also the ability to understand business strategy. Those are the kind of future-focused leaders that we enable our clients to hire and retain.
