Jean Cheng

Chief Information Officer - Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada

Ottawa, Ontario

I am most passionate about opportunities to help organizations achieve their potential through information technology. For more than 20 years I've been dedicated to ensuring the success of both my external and internal customers. I consider myself very fortunate to have had these opportunities and to having enjoyed challenging roles in each of the organizations I have served.

From an external customer perspective, I work in a pre-sales capacity with Microsoft's public sector, regulated and commercial customers, helping them succeed by providing subject matter expertise, educating senior executives and simplifying complex technology concepts. Those investments help to guide our customers through the appropriate business case, compliance, security and privacy pre-requisites for modernizing and transforming their own organizations.

That customer-facing role has always been balanced by work with internal clients that has involved incubating, expanding and evangelizing Internal start-ups. Past examples include the first emerging technologies and companywide web practice at CGI, building a new architecture organization within HRSDC and the internal business case work that helped to land Microsoft cloud data centers in Canada.

Throughout my career I have strived to maintain a balance of leadership skills and subject matter expertise to provide personal versatility and high quality decision-making. I am an experienced public speaker, having spoken to industry groups and conferences across Canada. I regularly make strategic business presentations to senior executives both in my current role at Microsoft and in past roles such as CTO with the Federal Government.
