Partha and I worked together as part of the senior leadership team at Joerns Healthcare. Partha has the rare combination of strategic thinking, superior execution, and operational excellence. Partha’s ability to blend technology and business knowledge along with a collaborative style is very powerful. The CIO position is one of the toughest executive positions, as everyone wants something and they want it yesterday. I admire Partha’s flexibility, charm, technology smarts and overall discipline to stay the course if need be. He demonstrated a high level of effectiveness particularly when involved in critical projects like Salesforce CRM and SAP ERP. I would jump at the chance to work with Partha again. Not only is Partha a quality CIO, but he is a great person.
