- Allison Martinez, CIO at Chevron Phillips Chemical, will add business transformation to her title beginning Oct. 1, the company said Tuesday.
- In the new role, Martinez will report to CEO Bruce Chinn and become part of the executive team, the company said.
- Martinez has served in a variety of leadership roles since she joined the company in 2001. As SVP, business transformation and CIO, Martinez will continue to oversee the IT organization while innovating business operations "through continuous improvement initiatives, culture evolution and championing a digital future," the company said in its announcement.
The shift at Chevron Phillips Chemical speaks to ongoing trends in the CIO scope. Enterprise leadership structures are drawing clear lines between business outcomes and the technology underpinnings.
Nine in 10 CIOs say their roles and responsibilities scaled past just technology to include tasks more akin to human resources, workforce management, sales and marketing, and sustainability and diversity among other fields, according to data from Lenovo.
Martinez comes to the role with deep insight into company operations, having served multiple roles across supply chain and IT throughout her tenure.
In addition to expanding Martinez' role, the company appointed a new CFO, Darren Ercolani, who will also assume duties Oct. 1.
“Allison has a strong track record of challenging the status quo and delivering effective technical solutions,” Chinn said in the announcement. “Her diverse experience and demonstrated success driving complex projects make her an effective leader capable of advancing our innovation and improvement initiatives and digital transformation to deliver value.”
