Case Study: Interim Chief Technology Officer at a Victorian Water Retailer
The Gig Executive team were approached to secure a high performing CTO/CIO to lead the technology division of one of the three metropolitan Melbourne water businesses owned by the Victorian Government. The CEO felt that the incumbent had fostered a divisive culture and an important project had hit a roadblock inhibiting major commercial outcomes. Maintaining a high degree of confidentiality, the Gig Executive team set about securing an interim CTO who could refocus the team, build a more collegiate culture and deliver the planned project.
The Gig Executive team were able to place an experienced IT Management Consultant specialising in IT strategy execution, IT organisational transformation and digital program strategy. A seasoned leader, the candidate had a demonstrated history of building collaborative technology teams who supported the whole of business.
Commencing in the role within two weeks of his CV being presented to the client, the placed Gig Executive was able to provide confidence and direction to the IT group, strengthened relationships with the organisations business groups and take steps to quickly increase the agility, focus and business-alignment of IT services and projects.
