How long have you been working in tech and what is your technical background?
I have been in technology since the early 1980s and have held a wide variety of roles in many different industries. I started as a developer/analyst, went into technical sales, made a move into management consulting, and then into management and leadership including two CIO roles. I have worked for companies in industries ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies. I think this variety is a real advantage as an IT leader since I have seen many different models and situations and have a broad playbook of what works.
