Chief Innovative Officer?
« on: January 30, 2018, 07:36:12 PM »
What does that even mean?  Seems kind of unprofessional for the president/owner of a big corporation to just come up with a title off the top of his head, especially when there is no real job available.

Never heard of it.  Guess I've been retired for too long.  But obviously NE didn't have one until Ashley came along.

We have a whole Innovations Department at my company, and we do have a VP of Innovations.  Probably used to be called Product Development. :)

Ashley just recently won Innovator of the Year Award so it's a fitting job and title for her.   I hope they are not putting her in Victor's radius so they have an affair... that would be just barf worthy but would probably be a wake up call for Nikki to get out from the old goat's life for good.
