Rebecca R. Rhoads, 2013 Honoree

Vice president and CIO
Raytheon Co.
Waltham, Mass.
How have you incorporated social media into your own work?
I created a global IT community for news and information on our internal RSpace social network and encourage dialogue among my IT colleagues. I leverage this network by writing a personal blog and posting periodic short videos. I also contribute regularly to other communities on topics like respect and diversity.
How are you turning your IT department into a services organization?
We have created an enterprise IT services organization with a mission to optimize operations for efficiency, embrace the consumerization of IT and leverage the cloud. We are also optimizing the financial model to a pay-as-you-go format. This approach is becoming a model for other enterprisewide functions in Raytheon.
