Barbara D. Kissner, 2014 Honoree

Senior vice president and CIO
International Fidelity Insurance Co.
Newark, N.J.
New titles in your IT organization:
Our compliance specialist is a business analyst who focuses on keeping us current and responding to numerous compliance/governance requests, and our PC technician is a hardware specialist who has been tasked with tuning our machine builds for speed and throughput.
A recent example of your leadership style:
Before going live with a new mobile version of our corporate website, I asked the team to bring in a variety of devices to thoroughly test the site. I hosted a pizza party so we could test as a group while having some fun.
Coolest current project:
Replacing our old, switch-based phone system with VoIP. This represents a big departure from our current technology and will provide us with direct inward dial, increased 'presence' and faster, easier communications.
