We are continuing our “Beyond the CIO’s First 30 Days” series with Warren Lenard. When we spoke to Warren two years ago he’d been in his role as CIO at Byrider for just over a year, but we were only 30 days into the pandemic. Jeff Ton and Warren sit down to get caught up and discuss what has transpired since their last conversation. Warren talks about how they’ve balanced the necessary adaptions to covid as well as the typical business technology challenges and opportunities. As Warren states, “Nothing ever goes according to plan. And as with any football team if you come to the line of scrimmage, you better have a couple of audibles in your back pocket.”
Currently, Warren is the Chief Information Officer for Byrider, based in Carmel, Indiana. He is responsible for all technology initiatives and platforms servicing both Byrider corporate, company stores and franchise stores. Over the past year, Warren has been leading his IT organization through organizational, technological and cultural change in what has been a true turnaround initiative touching all aspects of the business as well as company culture.
In addition to corporate IT roles Warren has successfully worked as a consultant building business solutions for the likes of insurance and collection firms as well as retail organizations. Warren is entering his fifth year serving on the board for the Indianapolis Chapter of Society for Information Management (SIM) including the last two years as President.
