DALLAS – Richard Wall, vice president for Enterprise Application Engineering at Dex Media, Inc., was named “One to Watch” by CIO magazine. The CIO Executive Council’s annual Ones to Watch award identifies the rising stars in IT. To be honored, these future CIOs must have demonstrated leadership, driven innovation and delivered value to their business. Wall has led organizations within IT at many companies and has experience across several disciplines including architecture, development, production support, and quality assurance. He is responsible for application development and maintenance activities at Dex Media, including all applications supporting Lead to Cash processes, mobile and online applications and websites representing Superpages.com, search platforms and traffic distribution integration to search partners, customer portal, and Business Intelligence Systems (BIS) applications. Wall also leads the Quality Assurance, Database Administration, and Production support organizations for Dex Media. In addition to directing the activities of 150 IT resources, he also manages the activities of two primary IT outsource vendors. Michael Dunn, Dex Media’s chief technology officer, said “I have witnessed Richard’s growth and results managing teams through difficult and extreme change, including large implementations or company acquisitions. At SuperMedia, he took over a large development organization – including development, testing, and production support – that was operating under different processes and leadership. He was able to communicate the level of performance, standards, customer-focus, agility, and flexibility he was looking for and successfully implement it. He is definitely a future CIO to watch.”
