Tim Peterson, 2014 Honoree

Executive vice president and CIO
Des Moines, Iowa
New titles in your IT organization:
CTO, director of technology strategy and management, director of strategic technology governance, director of innovation and digital platforms, director of technology portfolio and financial management.
How many times have you had to reinvent yourself in your career?
Several. I've had to become a subject-matter expert in both security and data management. My advice would be to own your brand and have a development plan. Be willing to make commitments (even bold ones) and relentlessly execute on them.
How are you turning your IT department into a services organization?
I executed a major reorganization of our IT and project management office functions and created business-unit-aligned technology teams directly responsible for servicing the needs of our business units. We are maturing ITIL processes to provide more predictable and repeatable services to our business units.
