Re: And one more nominee... Paccar's Kyle Quinn
PACCAR has done impressive work under Kyle Quinn's leadership, indeed. Quinn actually wasn't a chief of the year -- PACCAR was the No. 1 company in the InformationWeek annual ranking of IT innovators. By chance, we have an article today highlighting the work Quinn and the team did there, along with 4 other recent No. 1 companies:

And one more nominee... Paccar's Kyle Quinn
No one has asked for a baker's dozen here, but I wanted to nominate an additional name, Kyle Quinn, CIO at Paccar, in addition to these fine selectees. He had to supply manufacturing systems to a new tupe of truck engine plant in Columbus, Ind., after coping with the deep recession of 2008-2009, while installing SmartNav and NavPlus navigation systems into the dashes of Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks. Some innovation required. And I believe he's still coming back for more at Paccar's Renton, Wash., headquarters.

So many paths, so many playbooks
It's interesting to see the diversity of paths and playbooks in this "where-are-they-now" collection. Mott, for instance, has relied again and again on centralized control of IT and centralized (enterprise data warehouse) analytics for insight into customers and efficient operations.

It's notable, too, that even super-well-run companies like P&G have to mix things up to dance to the tune of investors. How many companies are splitting up or spinning out bits and pieces because single-digit growth and profitability just aren't good enough? It's not just fast-changing technology that has everyone shifting; it's also ever-changing competition and evolving attitudes about sound corporate direction.

Fasten your seatbelts, CIOs and would-be CIOs. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
