RETURN ON LEADERSHIP
 

Testimonials



It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.

Functional Practices

Information Technology Management

At Ray & Berndtson, our experienced search professionals understand that today's Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer are integral members of a company's senior management team. Each plays a vital role in the creation of the firm's strategic plan and in articulating how technology can enable the business strategies. Today's CIO is a business leader first, and a technologist second. The CIO must be able to manage technology in pursuit of the company's success. Today a CTO plays an increasingly important role by keeping ahead of the latest technologies, anticipating how these can work for the business. Especially in start-up and Internet related companies, the CTO sets forth the architecture for the systems and then manages the design and implementation of this plan.

Both of these positions must deal successfully with key issues:

  • Building an e-commerce strategy to complement the business plan
  • Impact of Internet and web based services
  • Need for digital security and privacy
  • Impact of ERP and supply chain
  • Knowledge management as a competitive advantage
  • Value of data warehouse initiatives
  • Evaluation of shared services model
  • Assessment of outsourcing versus providing solutions in-house
  • Aligning technology globally
  • Strategic vendor selection and management
  • Assessing wireless platforms
  • Attracting and retaining talent

Ray & Berndtson's global search professionals identify and recruit Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers and senior IT leadership teams worldwide, across all industry sectors and for all sizes and types of companies. Our clients include Fortune 100 global corporations and early stage, venture backed start-ups.
