As we execute on our Accelerate Vantage™ Strategy, we are continually looking for ways to enable more informed business decisions that will catapult Vantage ahead. This includes how can we better use technology to make Vantage nimbler and better prepared for the future.
To help accomplish this, we are pleased to announce that Steve Collier is now our VP of Information and Digital Strategies to focus on how we can advance our strategic initiatives by leveraging digital strategies and technologies. Steve has served as our Director of Information Technology (IT) since 2009 and held other roles within Vantage prior to that. He reports to Tim Wilson, SVP of Transformation.
Steve is now responsible for working with the Vantage Leadership Team to understand strategic and business priorities. He will help to build and execute on the plans to challenge us on what is possible through digital solutions, what capabilities we need and how we implement those as efficiently and quickly as possible.
