Jeff Roberts has been a CIO for mid-size companies, for 14 years, and recently started his own niche technology consulting company, Innovation Vista. That’s impressive, but something even more impressive is that during that 14-year tenure in the C-suite, Jeff has had 15… yes… 15 of his direct reports become C-level executives, themselves. So, why is he so good at mentoring future IT leaders? Well, according to Jeff, a big reason is the mentors he has been blessed with.
