Bhupesh Arora, 2012 Honoree

Senior director, New Technologies and IT Effectiveness
Avery Dennison
Pasadena, Calif.
New titles added to your IT organization?
Global businesses like ours increasingly use technology to maintain competitiveness and create new products and services. We're strengthening our capabilities with employees skilled in internal collaboration and social media, external Web-enabled networks with customers, and process and program management for effective global delivery and management of standardized IT services.
How have you incorporated social media into your own work?
Employees are much faster to adopt social media tools in the workplace when they see their leaders using them. My teams manage our workflow, communications and program content via online communities. I blog about new technologies and how they are being applied to advance real business needs. And I coach and encourage our senior leaders to do the same.
