martinwolf Executive Perspective

William Tauscher, Blackhawk Network


We first introduced the MW Executive Perspective in the 2Q12 edition of the martinwolf VDI, featuring Ben Eazzetta (then president of international operations for Rolta India Limited). Since then, the Executive Perspective has opened every VDI with a thought-provoking interview with a leader in the mid-market IT space.


I'm happy to announce that due to the feature's strong positive reception, starting today we will be introducing it as a monthly standalone piece emailed out to the martinwolf Intelligence Network.


Today we introduce William Tauscher, CEO and Chairman of the Board for Blackhawk Network. Bill has decades of experience in the IT space, and has witnessed firsthand many major shifts as the industry has evolved from batch computing to cloud computing. He also provides his unique perspective on how major tech companies have transformed, from Computerland (which he headed beginning in 1987) to industry stalwarts like Apple and Microsoft.


I'm sure you'll find his insight fascinating. And as always, we encourage you to submit your feedback by replying to this message.
