Why CIOs Make The Perfect Corporate Board Members

🔒 www.forbes.com

I’ve been exploring board opportunities for a while and feel strongly that a CTO/CIO is of growing importance for boards. This piece hits it spot on.

CIOs have a breadth and depth of understanding of their companies and industries that give them an exceptionally valuable ability to contribute to the broader boardroom agenda. Adept at business case building to justify their budgets they also naturally execute in a team-based environment with other executives. Digital and technology savvy, strategic and operational business aptitude, governance aware, team-oriented, risk versed, well rounded, deeper and broader than a CFO or CEO, CIOs need to be on every corporate board.

I expect that in coming years having a CTO/CIO on the board will be considered absolutely necessary.
