After failed attempts to transition two different executives into the CIO role, a large multinational firm needed to onboard a new CIO whose major challenge was straddling both the technology and business worlds. Transition coaching was deemed appropriate for a six-month onboarding process.
Not only was the role exceptionally challenging, but this executive was also moving from a US company based in the Northeast to one in the South, each with strong and distinct corporate cultures. The cultural issues, along with the business issues related to the CIO role, were the focal point for coaching.
As a result of Cambria’s efforts, this CIO transition was seamless, a particularly difficult feat given the history of the role.
