SJE is excited to announce that Tim Fowler has joined the Leadership Team as Chief Information Officer (CIO). This is a new position for the company that will oversee IT initiatives and the current IT team. He is based out of the SJE location in Plymouth, Minnesota.
“I am looking forward to helping the company grow by being a true business partner,” said Fowler. “SJE is an excellent fit for me to add value given my background in M&A, Cyber Security and broad IS strategy in enablement of new business capabilities.”
Before joining SJE, Fowler held a series of VP and divisional CIO roles at Polaris Industries. Prior to that, he spent 21 years between Irwin Financial (banking) and Rexnord Industries (international industrial manufacturing). He has developed a successful track record positioning the role of IT to support both the short and long-term needs of fast-growing organizations.
“SJE’s fast growth over the last few years has created challenges that require new capabilities, new perspectives and additional expertise on our team,” said Dave Thomas, President & CEO of SJE. “Tim’s background in high-growth, larger company environments will enable SJE to scale our technology capabilities to overcome these challenges and improve the level of service we provide to our customers.”
Aside from work, Tim enjoys coaching, running, hunting, exploring nature, boating and the finer details of a restaurant.
