We are excited to announce that Javier Polit, a global chief information officer (CIO) thought leader who has held roles as CIO for Procter & Gamble and The Coca Cola Company, has joined the Quickbase Board of Directors.
Polit has been the global CIO of Procter & Gamble since 2017 where he worked to guide the company’s digital transformation and find new applications of existing and emerging technologies in order to help bridge the gap between IT and the business. He has an extensive background in IT having held several senior IT positions at major corporations, including The Coca-Cola Company and Office Depot.
Polit brings a unique perspective to the market in a time when CIOs across a variety of industries are looking for practices and platforms to enable faster process innovation at scale. Having applied Quickbase to enable citizen development at Fortune 100 scale, Javier brings the real-world experience and expertise Quickbase customers need to safely, securely, and sustainably enable citizen development to perfect the processes that make their businesses unique.
We recently spoke with Polit about his interest in joining the Quickbase board, the greatest challenges currently facing IT leaders and CIOs, and the role citizen development will play moving forward.
