Atlanta Evanta CIO Summit Teresa Devine

As a former Fortune 500 CIO, Teresa Devine brings 18 years of experience leading complex IT transformations.  Known as the “Turnaround Pro CIO”, Teresa has delivered under stressful and demanding business situations.  For companies in need of an interim CIO solution for a short-term assignment, Teresa is the answer.  From DOT-COM start-up to Fortune 500 covering every aspect of IT, it’s rare to find an Interim CIO that offers so much diversity in technology expertise aligned with leadership development certifications.

Why you need Teresa as your interim CIO

When you’re facing a leadership gap in managing your IT department, it can cause tremendous stress on the overall organization.  High-performing employee retention becomes a risk along with declines in IT service quality, team morale, and overall productivity.

Selecting the “right” interim CIO candidate is also risky.  If you select someone who lacks the leadership experience and technology “know-how” the department can decline rapidly.  You need a proven C-level leader who has embraced the intensity of change with grace and confidence.  You deserve an interim CIO that can establish a solid strategy to carry the IT group through uncertain times until your next CIO leader is found.  Teresa has walked into some difficult situations and continue making forward progress.
