The AIIM Executive Leadership Council brings together top thinkers, high performance practitioners and leaders in information management. The Executive Leadership Council will generate a series of white papers for broad distribution to the global AIIM community.
The content and information management industry sits at an inflection point, as Social, Mobile and Cloud computing combine to create a new paradigm for how organizations view enterprise IT.
AIIM created this shared space for dynamic conversations to determine the role of the content and information management industry in this new era of business. The AIIM Executive Leadership Council has two goals:
Articulate the impact that these new technologies will have on the workplace
Define specific use cases for how the technologies can transform organizations and ways of work.
The Council is moderated by Thornton May. Thornton May is Futurist, Executive Director and Dean of the IT Leadership Academy. His extensive experience researching and consulting on the role and behaviors of Boards of Directors and "C" level executives in creating value with information technology has won him an unquestioned place on the short list of serious thinkers on this topic. May combines a scholar's patience for empirical research, a stand-up comic's capacity for pattern recognition and a second-to-none gift for storytelling to the information technology management problems facing executives.

Martyn Christian is Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for Kofax. He is responsible for all marketing initiatives, including brand, product, industry and field marketing functions. Martyn has more than 25 years of marketing and general management experience within the software industry.
JM: Martyn, you rejoined the AIIM Board last year. What drove you to commit to a "second term?"
MC: The Information Management industry is unique in its ability to reinvent itself, which means new opportunities from a personal and professional standpoint. My first term on the board was a significant learning experience for me, as well as a chance to give back to the industry that has given me a wide range of great career opportunities for more than 20 years.
JM: As you think about Kofax's employees and customers and partners, how can AIIM be of greatest assistance?
MC: I am absolutely “captured” by the CIP program. I think it is really what the industry needs to get to the next level of relevance and growth. I want everyone at Kofax and all our partners and customers to embrace it. It should give everyone the chance to contribute even more fully to the market as well as fuel our company’s growth.
MC: I believe Michael Croal (from Cornerstone Advisors) from beat me to be first. I have been in the industry for 20+ years so I assumed I could get a substantial way down the certification process without significant study time. It turned out I could, but the certification test highlighted for me that I need to continue striving to keep current and broaden my personal knowledge base via AIIM and other best practice sources.
JM: How important do you think information professionals will be to Kofax in the year's ahead?
MC: Information professionals are becoming essential, it’s just a matter of time.
