Description

We have been engaged in a retained search with a rapidly growing client in the northern Philadelphia suburbs, for a Director overseeing this company’s IT infrastructure design, operations, and support.

This is an organization that admits it is ‘growth obsessed.’ So much so in fact, this company has plans to double their revenue in the next 5 years, from $1 Billion to $2 Billion, and is tracking to do just that. To enable IT to grow and deliver value to business as it scales, a new leadership team has been put in place that has truly baked innovation right into the company’s cultural DNA.

This is an exciting time for the company, and potentially for someone who gets to work with this team. This is the perfect opportunity for a dynamic IT Leader who is on an upward career arc, who perhaps was the #2 in this area for a larger company and is ready to make that jump into a highly visible role and prove themselves, or perhaps someone who is in a similar role now and who wants a clear path to the C-Suite. A future CTO perhaps?
You may not be looking right now, but believe me the biggest steps forward in your career present themselves when you are not actively looking. Even if you are happy where you’re at, it’s worth a few minutes to hear more about this rare opportunity. A 5 minute confidential, exploratory chat could lead to the next big step in your career.

 

If you are interested in exploring further, please apply and I will be in touch with you right away.

Qualifications

This is an exciting time for the group, and they want someone who will fit into their culture, deliver value from day one, and help ‘lead the charge.’ This person must have the technical chops of course (data center infrastructure, voice/data networks, database management, cybersecurity, etc), but even more importantly, this person MUST be high energy and dynamic…a true ‘lead-from-the-front’ visionary.

Do you meet this requirements? If so…let’s talk:

  • Proven leadership skills with the ability to communicate a vision that motivates IT infrastructure technical staff and aligns to the overall IT and business strategy
  • Effective influencing and negotiation skills in an environment where resources may not be in direct control of this role
  • Excellent analytical, conceptual thinking, planning and execution skills
  • Strong infrastructure acumen, including cross-domain knowledge and preferably earlier career experience in a technical infrastructure role, such as a system administrator, data center manager, etc.
  • Experience in budget planning and financial management
  • Deep understanding of current and emerging infrastructure technologies and how other enterprises are employing them
  • Success in leveraging both traditional practices, such as IT service management, as well as emerging methods, such as DevOps, that are optimized for agility
  • Strong vendor management and partner relation skills to identify and leverage resources internal and external to the enterprise to enhance capabilities that support business objectives
  • Ability to drive organizational change and build infrastructure capabilities that effectively balance the need to optimize efficiency with the need to deliver innovative and agile solutions
