Aviva's International CIO Fin Goulding is trying to bring the cut and thrust pace of the dotcom era to the centuries-old insurance sector, buoyed by the opportunity to be disruptive having previously ruled out returning to the financial services sector where he started his career. Goulding, who worked as CIO of Lastminute and Travelocity before his appointment as Chief Information Officer at Paddy Power in 2012, left the bookmakers to become CIO of Aviva in Ireland in April 2016.
The Chief Digital Officer role emerged in the mid-2010s as one of the most talked-about executive roles in the C-suite. The number of Chief Digital Officers increased, with the role well represented in the highest echelons of the 2016 and 2017 editions of the CIO 100. Chief Digital Officers are considered both the new stars of the C-suite as well as faddish or transitory roles which will eventually go away - a view even held by a number of CDOs themselves.
Francis Crick Institute CIO Alison Davis and CIO 100 panellist Trevor Didcock, a former CIO 100 leader, are the first guests on the inaugural CIO UK podcast, discussing technology themes for 2018, the CIO 100 and their career highlights.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
