About the Author

As founder and CEO of The Feld Group—based in Dallas, Texas—Charlie Feld built a team of information technology executives that enabled Fortune 500 companies to achieve dramatic results
through the transformation of their IT organizations. The Feld Group was acquired by EDS in 2004, which was subsequently purchased by Hewlett-Packard in 2008. In September 2008, Feld retired as a senior executive vice president and member of EDS’s Executive Committee. In 2009, Feld launched The Feld Group Institute, a leadership development firm that is working with a number of Fortune 50 companies developing the next generation of business and IT leaders.

Feld has garnered accolades from numerous sources, including Business 2.0 and Computerworld magazines and has been featured in InformationWeek and CIO magazines, which placed him among its “5 Top CIOs” in 2001. In 1997, Feld was named “One of the 12 Most Influential IT Executives of the Past Decade” by CIO magazine, and Computerworld named him as one of “25 IT People to Watch in 1998.” His articles on IT leadership topics have appeared regularly in Computerworld Executive Suite, Harvard Business Review, and CIO magazine. He has received several industry awards, including the Smithsonian Award for Technology Excellence and the Carnegie Mellon Award for Innovative Technology. In addition, The Feld Group’s work has been the subject of multiple case studies cited in the Harvard Business School, MIT, and McKinsey Quarterly.
Feld attributes the lion’s share of his success in business and in life to the 20 years he spent at PepsiCo. He was one of thousands of leaders that were a direct product of the “Calloway Way,” where both results and integrity were the expectation.

Charlie Feld earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the City University of New York, Hunter College.
