Mark A. Farrow, 2014 Honoree

Vice president and CIO
Hamilton Health Sciences
Hamilton, Ontario
New titles in your IT organization:
Within the past year, we have added a portfolio manager who acts as air-traffic controller to coordinate work and allocate resources among our projects, a crucial function given the increasing interdependency among projects.
How many times have you had to reinvent yourself in your career?
Being a CIO means continually reinventing yourself to stay ahead of the curve. Over the past few years, I have become an expert in document imaging, RFID, mobility, virtualization and now portfolio management.
A recent example of your leadership style:
We procured Epic Ambulatory electronic medical records software, a multimillion-dollar project. I provided my team with strategic direction and encouragement, but also the latitude to make their own decisions.
