Information Technology Director Named 2018 “Ones to Watch” Honoree

Each year the Ones to Watch Award honors the rising stars in IT – the senior staff that is destined to become the chief information officers (CIOs) of the future. The nominees were judged by a panel of veteran CIOs and members of the CIO Executive Council on specific criteria involving job history, on-the-job accomplishments and leadership attributes.

This year, Global Information Services Director Jamie Engstrom has been selected to receive a 2018 Ones to Watch Award from the CIO Executive Council. Jamie has held diverse positions across IT and procurement since joining Caterpillar in 1999, including experience outside of the United States. Throughout her time, she has managed enterprise-wide efforts including global deployments of SAP and Office 365.

Earlier this year, Jamie served as a representative for Caterpillar’s Strategic Planning Committee, providing valuable insights to refresh the overall company strategy, especially in the area of IT strategy and enhancing Caterpillar’s digital solutions.

Jamie has not only earned the respect of her team at Caterpillar, but also in the community and industry. She serves on the Easter Seals nonprofit organization Board of Directors, as well as the Microsoft Global Technology Executive Council and ClearEdge Advisory Board.

The previous candidates of the Ones to Watch Award have had the track record of success, an essential blend of communication and collaboration skills and a keen understanding of business goals. This year she will be presented with her Ones to Watch Award at the AGENDA18 Conference in Miami, Florida.  AGENDA is the business leadership conference focused on driving business forward in changing times.

GIS and Caterpillar commend Jamie not only as a leader in IT but also a positive representative for the company. Congratulations, Jamie!
