Scott Smeester has over 25-years of experience in web-based application development, earned a degree in civil engineering, and has invested two decades in building companies. He has the creativity of a developer, the engineer’s love for infrastructure and the pragmatic “CEO’s focus” on strategy and ROI. His unique combination makes him an ideal partner (CIO/CTO) to translate between the executive suite and the IT group, to find technology solutions and to navigate digital transformation.
CIO Mastermind began in 2018 when Scott became driven to end the isolation technology leaders often experience, and to provide a more robust community than the vendor-sponsored options of which he had attended.
Working with his coach, Joe Woodruff, they both designed CIO Mastermind as a learning community in which members would be able to bring real-time needs to the table, receive unbiased input on their situations, and develop customized solutions for the sake of their teams and stakeholders.
Today, CIO Mastermind provides peer groups, coaching, team development, and IT transformation leadership to CIOs and their companies.
