EXECUTIVE SEARCH: Chief Information Officer (CIO) - Major Diversified Conglomerate

LOCATION: Major Asian location

COMPANY: Major Asian Diversified Conglomerate

HEADHUNTER FOCUS: This very large Group, holding diverse interests in major consumer and B2B service sectors, requires a Group Head of Information Services, who would report to the Group Finance Director. Key characteristics: confident, knowledgeable, respected IT Head who is not egotistical. As Group IT Head, this person will be the key person to introduce and promote new technologies and concepts (Machine Learning, Predictive Analytics, Cloud Services, Social Media, etc.), along with an increased focus on Shared Services whenever practical.

Recruiter seeks, on behalf of a large Asian conglomerate, a Chief Information Officer (CIO), who would directly supervise 50 at Headquarters. Indirect responsibility over business unit CIO's and IT Directors at approximately 15-20 key business units (note: these IT heads report not to this person but rather to their respective business unit heads, MD's or CEO's)

This crucial position is not about how many people one supervises. To some degree it is almost like a sole contributor with a unique role that is critical to the Group as a whole. The Group IT Head's focus will be to help implement future technologies benefiting all Group units while the business unit CIO's and IT Director's focus, by necessity, will be on getting the normal day's work done. This is the challenge for the Group IT Head. S/he will be oriented toward making efficiencies and integrating new technologies for the long run. Therefore, a key characteristic will be a persistent, cajoling, dogged type of person who also is diplomatic and respectful of existing business unit IT Directors and CIO's. This person must be open minded, able to do a lot of handholding when needed, and have an ability to win people over.... for their business unit's long term benefit.

A very wide range of current titles and experiences might be perfectly suitable for this role. It has been said that perhaps a person who has worked as a Program Director (or with a similar kind of project-by-project orientation) might work well in this role. Some also feel that people who have worked in management consulting might be good, as much of the work here is interpersonal and consultative in nature, as opposed to being mostly oriented toward equipment and software. It is said that due to the size of this organization (over 200,000 employees), people familiar with large conglomerates might understand this kind of role well, but it should be noted that the retiring incumbent (over 15 years in this role) came from a top world retail/ hypermarket chain and he has done well in this position.

Desired Requirements

Has a degree in information technology, computer science, Finance or a related field.

20 years' experience, with 8+ years held in a Senior IT Director or CIO position within a multinational organization.

Has a talent for understanding the impact of new technology and is able to spot solutions that will have the most profound impact on business growth from either an adoption or investment perspective.

Ideally has application Development lifecycle experience in large scale Oracle deployments. As for Oracle, if people have dealt heavily with SAP then that is acceptable as well. Both are unwieldy companies, so overcoming the challenges are similar. Oracle is highly desirable especially if the candidate has existing relationships at senior levels. With regard to SAP and or Oracle, the key is that the candidate has directly managed and influenced the supplier at a senior executive level rather than 'just' implemented it. So not a showstopper if the person has SAP rather than Oracle experience.

Has deep experience of strategic planning and implementation.

Has a proven track record in negotiating and managing multimillion dollar contracts with major IT suppliers.

Has a proven ability to manage and motivate large teams of people toward a common goal.
