"I never set out to be a leader. I was a professor and was given the opportunity to lead. I’ve had some good role models. I worked for Ohio State CIO Ilee Rhimes, and when he went to the University of Southern California to become CIO and vice provost, he recruited me and I worked with him for another seven years. He was an amazing leader. He’d never tell me I did something wrong. He’d ask, “How would you do that differently?” He was a good listener, was selfless and gave others the credit.
