CIO/CTO Advisory Services

Proven leadership helping IT
grow and mature.

Staff transitions, downsizing, and attrition can set an IT organization’s development back by close to a year.

Harvard Partners CIO/CTO Advisory Services have a proven track record of onboarding highly effective “CIOs and CTOs for Hire”: temporary, seasoned executive managers that establish and sustain organizational stability during IT executive searches.

We place CTOs with 20 to 30 years of experience managing high-performance IT organizations in enterprise-level and mid-tier organizations.

Harvard Partners’ CIO/CTO Advisory Services provide IT executives who:

  • Provide business and technology leadership, with strong IT management backgrounds and the ability to discuss technology and business opportunities with equal fluency. They represent IT as part of the executive team and represent technology initiatives with business leaders and users.
  • Manage the firm-wide technology project portfolio.
  • Possess diverse knowledge of infrastructures and financial applications.
  • See themselves as ambassadors for IT and stewards for technology usage across an organization. They are the “voice of IT” for internal and external communication. They care about efficacy over ownership.
  • Lead through communication, motivation, and education.
  • Identify and recruit great staff and great vendors.
  • Represent technology functions with clients and auditors.

Drive positive, forward-looking change in your IT organization—even while leadership is in transition.

Short-term and part-time IT leadership can be a catalyst for change when used to develop and support internal IT management, assist in recruiting, and manage external vendors.

Great IT leadership transforms IT into a discipline focused on understanding user needs, delivering solutions, reducing business risk or increasing business value, and creating business outcomes. Empowering IT teams to own change and growth is a critical success factor for every IT executive placed by Harvard Partners.
