Chief Information Officer Executive Search & Headhunting

Let our team of specialists handle your Chief Information Officer recruitment.

Importance of The Chief Information Officer Role

The Chief Information officer (CIO) role is one of the newer CxO roles, the first appointment being made in the 1980’s. Since then, the role has grown in importance as the pace of information use in the digital world increases.

Today, the CIO role is a vital part of an organisational structure. As a valuable member of the C-Suite, they create value through technology and data, with the ability to be forward-looking in the ever-evolving world of digital and real-world information.

A CIO’s responsibilities include managing an organisation’s IT staff, software and hardware, and strategic planning for the organisation’s computer systems and network.

Depending on the role, the CIO may also have oversight of a broader team, including security specialists and the CTO, who usually reports to the CIO. As such, the CIO is a critical hire for many organisations.

Novo’s CIO specialists can help you identify and attract your next exceptional executive.

Chief Information Officer Skills Needed Include:

  • Able to see the big picture, taking on details whilst avoiding being bogged down by them.
  • Excellent communication skills, both to those that report to them and sideways to the rest of the C-Suite
  • Highly analytical
  • Forward-thinker, able to monitor & predict changes in a fast-moving sector

As with most C-Suite roles, a CIO also have good ‘soft skills’, able to encourage teamwork and foster a good work environment for their team.
