Virtual Session Summary


Potential new hires for an IT organization are typically evaluated for their technical skills, the ability to work in a group or independently, and their cultural fit within an organization.

We were joined by David Behen, VP & CIO at La-Z-Boy, Inc., John McGuthry, VP & CIO at Cal Poly Pomona, and Jesse Carrillo, SVP & CIO at Hines.
