We last visited with Jamie Lee on Status Go in Episode 15. At that time, Jamie was the CIO for Wabash National, a tractor-trailer manufacturer. Today, Jamie is 18 months into his role as CIO of Ecobat, a world-leading batteries recycler. We took this unique opportunity to talk with him about his transition and relocation, his views on the CIO role, and his guiding transformation at an industrial company. Jamie has been working at speed to manage the change, deal with the fallout of a cyber-attack, and do it during a global pandemic. He also leaves us with an unexpected call to action!
