Eric J. Brown, 2012 Honoree

Executive vice president and CIO
NCI Building Systems Inc.
Skills you'll hire for this year?
While we always look for core technical skills, we find that competence in project management and business analysis is more important than ever. With 'doing more with less' as our constant mantra, we now focus on mentoring and educating our senior developers to improve their expertise in internal customer communications and operational manufacturing business analysis.
Your relationship with a key business leader:
In addition to working closely with all C-level executives, I need to understand the division presidents' strategic and operational initiatives, goals for the coming fiscal year and future five-year strategic plan. The economic downturn drives me to make tough choices between needs and wants. Working side by side with the operational executives of the business units provides the deep knowledge we need to make those decisions.
