How Visteon's CIO Netflixed The Competition Before Becoming Blockbusted

Raman Mehta is the Chief Information Officer of Visteon, a $3 billion automotive supplier that spun off from Ford in 2000. While initially focused on numerous products ranging from seating to climate control, Visteon is now the only Tier 1 supplier focused exclusively on cockpit electronics. This shift entails transitioning from being a hardware-centric company to one built around software and emerging technologies. As CIO, Raman helps facilitate this shift by leading all facets of Visteon’s global information technology. Prior to joining Visteon, Ramen was the SVP & CIO at Fabrinet. May 04, 2020

452: Visteon CIO Raman Mehta discusses how IT has enhanced its role and gained the trust of the business. Historically, IT at Visteon has been great at solving problems it was presented with. However, IT was never given a voice in the company’s strategy or product roadmap. That has changed, and the board and executive committee now has great confidence in the capabilities of IT, which has enabled the organization to take on a more strategic role. We also discuss Raman’s take on 3D printing and autonomous driving, the tech landscape in Detroit, where Visteon is based, how the company is looking to turn its technology debt into a dividend, and a variety of other topics.
