I just got word that Mitchell Habib resigned from his post as CIO of Citibank North America “on or about 10/24/2006,” according to my source, who says no reason was given for his resignation. His last day is November 1. Marv Adams, the former CIO and SVP of corporate strategy officer at Ford, currently serves as CIO of Citigroup. Adams assumed that post last spring.
Update 10/23/07: CIO Senior Editor Kim S. Nash spoke with Habib about his management style, reputation and approach to transforming IT at Nielsen in this Q&A with him. Also read Senior Editor Stephane Overby’s article about Nielsen’s $1.2 billion outsourcing contract to Tata Consultancy Services.
