What an honor it was to have the 2018 Life Time Achievement Award winner, Mr. Bob DeRodes, visit Booth 61 with Ricky Steele at this year’s CIO of the Year event. I was fortunate to meet Bob 10 years ago and I have been learning from him ever since. Listen to this podcast and you too will benefit from this man’s wisdom and insight.
Bob has had a very multifaceted career from banking to the airline industry and from insurance to retail and finally to the Fin/Tech space. Bob not only has a very diverse background but he was able to take lessons from each industry and apply them to other industries with very different business models but similiar technology issues.
In addition to being a successful business executive, Bob has a huge heart and has been instrumental in many not for profit organizations over his career from Habitat for Humanity to United Way and TechBridge. Bob sets an example for others to follow.
Thank you Frank Bell, Lisa LaRoque and Inspire CIO for allowing Booth 61 to once again be part of this wonderful celebration of our industry. Thank you TRC Professional Solutions for being our Sponsor and Channel Partner of Steele Technology Partners.
