Worthington Industries Hires New CIO to Lead ERP Implementation

Jan 24, 20061 min

So far, it’s a slow week for announcements about CIOs.  Here are the two most recent ones I’ve come across. 

Worthington Industries hired Robert Richardson as its new CIO.  One of his top priorities at the Columbus, Ohio-based metal processing company will be implementing an ERP system.  Richardson comes to Worthington Industries from transportation construction company Ashland where he most recently served as director of IT global architecture. 

The Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA) appointed two CIOs to its board of directors.  The additions of Anthony Iorio and Michael Maffattone bring the total number of board members up to 11.  Iorio currently serves as CIO in charge of infrastructure and operations for the enterprise technology group at Marsh.  He is also head of Marsh & McLennan’s global network services group, a shared service function that provides data and voice services to Marsh & McLennan’s internal operating companies.  Maffattone is CIO at the hedge fund Caxton Associates, which he joined in January 2000.  Prior to Caxton, he worked for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for sixteen and a half years.
