John A. Prusnick, 2013 Honoree

Director, IT innovation and strategy
Hyatt Hotels Corp.
New titles in your IT organization:
Director of IT innovation and strategy, and manager of IT business process and innovation
How have you incorporated social media into your own work?
I have embraced Twitter and LinkedIn groups where I can freely share my thoughts and experiences with others as well as learn from colleagues. Internally, I introduced our blog and collaboration tool, HyVE, to help facilitate idea sharing and 'pooling.' The code name 'HyVE' is an acronym for Hyatt Virtual Engagement -- where ideas 'buzz.' It's likely going to be expanded for use across the company.
A recent example of your leadership style:
My style is honest, direct and laid back. It is not formal. I don't use last names, and I don't believe in titles.
