- Post Holdings Inc. appointed Mike Sullivan as SVP and CIO, Food Business News reported Wednesday.
- Sullivan previously served as VP and CIO at Bob Evans Farms Inc. — a Post Holdings company — where he held a number of leadership roles for 30 years, according to his LinkedIn.
- Sullivan takes on the new leadership role at Post amid efforts to overcome supply chain challenges. Improvements in this area will be "a more gradual process of grinding it out quarter-to-quarter," said Rob Vitale, president and CEO of the company, during the company’s Q3 2022 earnings call for the period ending on June 30.
Just like many consumer-facing businesses, Post Holdings has grappled with supply chain woes.
Some companies in the food industry have turned to technology providers in order to address the issue.
Kraft Heinz partnered with Microsoft earlier this year to access better data insights, visibility and speed. The company also has a multiyear digital transformation deal with Google to deploy cloud-based AI and ML real-time data insights.
Supply chain technology innovations are likely to continue as more companies turn to data-driven strategies to support business operations.
For CIOs, this means that their list of responsibilities is expanding. As technology becomes the driving force of traditionally non-tech companies, tech leaders take on more.
The majority of tech leaders today say their responsibilities include human resources, workforce management, sales, marketing, and diversity and sustainability, according to a Lenovo survey
