CIO Role Changing

The Changing Role of the CIO

Perhaps no C-level role has changed more dramatically than that of the CIO

Over the course of the last five years, perhaps no C-level role has changed more dramatically than that of the CIO. Leaders in this role can no longer focus solely on IT infrastructure and architecture. Today, companies expect CIOs to be a complete and equal business partner who serves as the bridge between business and technology. A successful CIO must possess a range of business skills, in addition to an ever-widening scope of technical expertise.

Watch our video below as Jim Dunlap, CIO of Kendra Scott, shares how his role as CIO has changed, the skills required to thrive, and the rewarding nature of this evolved role.
