Linda Jojo earns Chicago CIO of the Year honors

By Ryan Hood, March 31, 2017

Our Chief Information Officer (CIO) and EVP Linda Jojo was named Chicago CIO of the Year by the Chicago CIO Leadership Association this morning.

Linda won the Super Global category, besting the competition from McDonalds and Motorola, among others.

"Linda has put a high premium on modernizing technology to make sure our employees have the absolute state-of-the-art tools to serve our customers. Her philosophy is simple: Our employees ought to have the same level of innovation and sophistication that our customers would choose for themselves," Oscar said. "Linda has created a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation among her team; a zeal to continue to improve our service and achieve a higher level of excellence. That speaks not only to the depth of her expertise, but also to her skills as a manager, team builder, leader and friend."

Since she joined the company in 2014, she's led a paradigm shift in the way we think about our airline. Linda's leadership has helped put a technology mindset into action by putting our employees and customers in greater control of the travel experience.

We are a mobile operation. To that end, Linda and her team are in the process of rolling out more than 50,000 mobile devices to customer service representatives, pilots, flight attendants, ramp service employees and others. They've also worked on improving the stability and security of our systems.

"I'm humbled to accept the award on behalf of United's IT team around the world. Every day we strive to deliver the tools and technology to allow all of us to connect people and unite the world," Linda said. "And the best part? We are just getting started!"
