"An information technology executive is a senior-level professional who supervises computerized information systems at an organization. Depending upon the size of the company, this individual may be focused on management and strategic planning, as is the case for vice-presidents and directors. At other organizations, he could be more heavily involved in on-site applications and troubleshooting, which is in line with the job duties of an information technology manager or supervisor. Any executive of this type will likely supervise and train others in effective and efficient protocols and procedures."
