Kris Herrin, 2013 Honoree

Chief technology officer
Heartland Payment Systems
Plano, Texas
How are you turning your IT department into a services organization?
Heartland IT is shifting to become a trusted technology broker, not just an internal delivery organization. For example, we are hiring staffers focused on helping business leaders balance time-to-value, risk and cost in regard to the various internal and external cloud offerings.
A career highlight:
Leading the IT response to the illegal breach of Heartland's processing network, including spearheading Heartland's Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards recertification in only six weeks.
What's your involvement in developing new products or services for your organization?
Heartland IT is responsible for delivering secure and reliable payment processing services externally to merchants and supporting our salesforce, operations and corporate needs. Business product leaders partner with our IT product owners and agile development groups to deliver innovative products and services that best serve our customers and enterprise.
