Brian S. Rice, 2013 Honoree

Senior vice president and CIO
Kellogg Co.
Battle Creek, Mich.
Characteristic most important in an IT hire:
We need business-savvy technologists who understand our industry needs and who can leverage external insights to envision what's next and what's needed. Our new IT leaders need to not only be able to deliver solutions, but also bring ideas and develop investment business cases that solve real problems using technology.
Your relationship with a key business leader:
Our chief marketing officer and I have developed a very strong partnership, leveraging digital technologies to develop deeper, one-to-one relationships with the people who buy our products. Our teams worked together to create a digital strategy, we agreed to accountabilities across our two organizations, built and aligned our teams, and have established a world-class digital marketing technology platform that is leveraged globally.
