Dinu Parel has been named the new Chief Information Officer of Parker Hannifin Corporation, a Mayfield Heights, Ohio-based maker of motion and control technology products. Parel succeeds William Eline, who had been with the company for 40 years.
Prior to this role, Parel was CIO of Downers Grove, Illinois-based Dover Corporation, where he was the industrial conglomerate’s first ever CIO. I interviewed Parel earlier this year, in which he spoke about transforming IT from a traditional, back-office support function to an advisory function that helps drive business growth and innovative technologies such as Blockchain.
