CIO Choice AwardMark Husnick, Chief Information Officer, Arconic
Over the last several years, Mark has faced a unique challenge among CIOs. With Alcoa’s separation into two companies, and the launch of Arconic, he has successfully led the creation of a brand-new IT function out of the resources, infrastructure and business model that existed from the old Alcoa.
In 2017, Mark challenged IT to do more and advance technology within the company. He designed a strategy that allows Arconic’s IT organization to run as a smaller group while off-setting stranded costs and moving the business forward.
He moved on-premise technology (including the North American Data Center) to cloud-based solutions, and he championed the introduction of modern workplace technology, advanced customer relationship management functionality and cloud-based Human Resources systems with a rally cry to “Modernize IT at Arconic from the Shop Floor to the Board Room.”
