James A. Robertson, 2012 Honoree

Vice president, technology infrastructure and broadcast transmissions
Turner Broadcasting System Inc.
What characteristic is most important to you in an IT hire?
Technical competence with a business understanding. I look for technical experts who can clearly articulate technology's value proposition to the business.
What's the most important task you've delegated this year?
I've delegated direct operational oversight to our operational director, a newly created role. This allows me to focus entirely on broadcast and IT engineering, strategy and the security aspects of our business. This change has been successful and has allowed me to focus my talents on strategic business needs.
