New titles in your IT organization:
Across our IT organization we have added the title and role of architect. This role applies across our infrastructure, applications and information security groups.
Characteristic most important in an IT hire:
Someone who can execute. I believe execution is a combination of two related skills, results-orientation and doing what it takes to 'get the ball over the goal line.' There are lots of great people with great thoughts, experience and knowledge. Those characteristics are important, but the ability to successfully execute is critical.
A task you've delegated this year:
I delegated the daily operations responsibility to my direct reports.
