Tom Nealon, Board Member at Southwest Airlines and Fossil Group

Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)

In this interview, Tom Nealon, Board member at Southwest Airlines and Fossil Group, discusses World Class IT principle four, IT-Business Partnerships, with Metis Strategy. Some of the topics discussed include:

  • Tom’s journey from company to company and what led him to become a CIO and a member of the Board of Directors and his emphasis of being a “business guy specializing in technology.”
  • The uniqueness of Tom’s background always having technology being a part of his life but not necessarily having the requisite technology background and instead having a business background.
  • How Tom, as an IT executive, ended up taking on the responsibility of corporate strategy – a traditionally very “business” role.
  • The value from the perspective gained from being on a management team and a Board of Directors simultaneously.
  • Tom’s belief in being driven, motivated and curious about the work one does and not specifically being ambitious to achieve a specific title or board position.
  • Eye on the Trends: The growing importance of and requirement for CIOs gaining a business understanding and driving towards being business leaders with deep technology understanding rather than being technology specialists working with the business.
