Robert I. Turner , 2010 Honoree

Senior vice president, IT
Capital One Financial Corp.
Richmond,, Va.
First job:
"Paperboy for The Hopewell News in Hopewell, Va."
Would you advise young people to pursue an IT career?
"I definitely recommend an IT career for young people. But I think the future IT career will be very different from IT careers of the past. If what we know as IT today becomes a true utility, then the careers of the future will be more focused on the next innovation, not on running the existing technology. The jobs will be more competitive, and a well-rounded education will be required to succeed in IT."
Passions outside of work:
"I spend most of my time outside of work with my family. I also love to fish and occasionally play golf, and I read a lot of books and magazines."
