The Eight CEO’s featured in my “Profiles in Data Leadership” Series

June 1, 2015 — Leave a comment

In my January column for Information Age I proffered that 2015 should be known as “The Year in Data Leadership” (http://bit.ly/145Ai2Z). This was based on my strong conviction that Leadership from the Top Down was the only way to see data, information & analytics become true core competencies for an organization where the entire culture was focused on their exploitation for competitive advantage.

Following on to that theme I began to develop a series of posts & presentations entitled “Profiles in Data Leadership” (http://bit.ly/1QkirXv). The concept is loosely based on JFK’s book, “Profiles in Leadership” which he wrote in the 50’s when I was a schoolchild. My approach focuses on Eight CEO’s from the Public, Private & Not for Profit Sectors who exemplify what I characterize in my  “Data Leadership Nexus” strategic framework in respect to leading their Organizations as they endeavor to become a Predictive Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1QkihPN).

Additionally, in the May 2015 issue of Information Age (http://bit.ly/1DTYjnQ) i wrote about two of these CEO’s (Jim Smith of Thomson-Reuters and Brian Cornell of Target Corporation) as well as speaking about them, along with Martin O’Malley (Former Governor of MD) at the PASSBAC conference (http://bit.ly/1QkPJ94).

In this posting, I would like to identify all Eight CEO’s who will be featured in the overall series (and potential publication), along with providing a short bio on each. They represent true Top-down Data Leaders from the three major Sectors and their Official Bios can be found via the links next to their title. I will be dedicating a blog posting to each one of them in the coming days.
