Jane Moran Named As One of the 10 Most Powerful Women in Technology
As part of the CNN profile on leading women, Carolyn Leighton, founder and chairwoman of Women in Technology International (WITI), identifies the 10 most powerful women in technology. Our own Global Chief Information Officer Jane Moran made the list, along with colleagues from Cisco, IBM, HTC Corp, Facebook and Google.
As CIO for Thomson Reuters, Jane leads the global MIS organization, comprising 1,200 employees who drive the strategy, implementation and support for the internal business platforms that support prospect-to-cash, financial operations, sales management, HR systems, enabling technology and global reporting.
Jane and her team partner closely with segment executives and other senior leaders to implement a global MIS plan that maximizes efficiencies through standardization and works to harmonize processes, culture and information to support business objectives. Beyond MIS, Jane leads the Thomson Reuters Women in Technology Special Interest Group and co-sponsors the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender employees and Friends (LGBTF) network.
Jane’s skills and expertise are also in high demand outside of Thomson Reuters;
- She is an advisory board member of Brown University’s Committee for Computer Science and Information Technology,
- An advisory board member for Women in Technology International, and
- Sits on the CIO Council for Salesforce.com, Workday and SAP.
In December 2011, Jane was profiled and on the cover of CIO Magazine, in which she shared insights on leading mergers and standardizing global IT. In an interview with the Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology, Jane attributes her decision to enter technology to time spent in her father’s math lab at Ohio State University.
“Congratulations to Jane on this well-deserved recognition. This is a wonderful acknowledgement of Jane’s leadership and efforts, as well as the great work of her entire MIS team. Jane’s contributions to Thomson Reuters – and to the overall advancement of women in technology – continue to help strengthen our Technology organization.”
-Rick King, chief operations officer for Technology.
“Within minutes of meeting Jane, you get a strong sense of why she is one of the world’s leading CIOs. Despite a ceaseless schedule, she’s both an active participant in WITI and in Thomson Reuters Women’s Network, among other organizations. She’s a leading example of utilizing a career in technology to create greater business opportunities while supporting the advancement of other women along the way.”
-Michele Weisblatt, WITI EVP
