CIOs in Privileged Position to Become CEO

moving up If understanding technology is an essential ability for future CEOs, CIOs are leagues ahead of other C-suite counterparts when it comes to making moves towards becoming the chief executive officer. This article by Edward Qualtrough cites Luis Alvarez, former CIO who worked for IBM, who explained that the end-to-end visibility a CIO has makes them a remarkably valuable player for the CEO position.

The CIO is trained to find where technology can help the business, and it's through that training CIOs can take the step to CEO.
