Domino Printing Sciences has appointed Alberto Sanson as its new chief information officer following the retirement of Dick Wallin, who led Domino’s IT team for the past twenty years.
‘My goal is to build upon what Dick has already achieved in transforming Domino’s global IT organization into a trusted business partner, delivering an IT strategy that aligns with and moves the larger business strategy forward,’ commented Alberto Sanson. ‘The role of the IT leader continues to evolve; it is no longer just about maintaining systems, but instead driving innovation in processes, behavior and how we apply technology.’
Our objective is to improve both the experience we provide our customers and our operational efficiency, to deliver genuine, long-term competitive advantage. At Domino, our digital transformation program supports the long-term aspirations outlined in our vision and mission, but also the critically important information backbone to respond to day-to-day business needs.’
As CIO, Sanson’s responsibilities will include leading Domino’s IT function as a key member of the Domino Executive Leadership team. He has a strong track record in driving strategies to deliver business results as an experienced IT leader and with in-depth experience of managing and developing global teams. He joins from Illinois Tool Works, where he held the position of group IT director for the company’s USD 1.7bn construction segment. Prior to this, his career has included positions of increasing IT leadership responsibility, in fast-paced, changing, global industrial and technology companies.
Robert Pulford, CEO at Domino, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Alberto to our Executive Leadership team and wish him every success in his new role. His in-depth experience of leading sophisticated IT functions in dynamic industrial and technology businesses will be invaluable to us in the rapidly-changing times in which we operate, allowing us to build upon our already strong foundations and support our objectives for an agile, sustainable and innovative global business.’
