New titles in your IT organization:
Data architect, CTO, business partner, program manager.
How many times have you had to reinvent yourself in your career?
Several times, as I moved first from application development to the business side of international banking, and then into healthcare. I have been an applications and then infrastructure guy, a CTO and a CIO.
A recent example of your leadership style:
After the center's power failed during Hurricane Sandy, I joined an all-hands effort to evacuate patients from the hospital. Immediately afterward, I gathered my team in a hotel conference room, where we established an emergency command center and began to tackle the massive recovery effort.
How do you evaluate emerging technologies?
Our new innovation center was designed to showcase new business processes and technologies. We are establishing a complementary innovation community to harvest faculty, staff and student ideas via our new socially-driven digital platform.
