Tech-Casting with Opex is a weekly podcast, featuring leaders in business and tech sharing the stories behind their success, their tips for others, and their thoughts on current and future technology!  We welcome a wide range of guests, whether from small businesses or large enterprises, in order to present a variety of topics for discussion, touching on all areas of business and technology mixed in with current events, city reviews, fishing stories (hence the casting!), and personal anecdotes.

In our most recent episode, our very own Mike Charobee sits down with a “celebrity CIO in the Carolinas”, Joe Topinka. Aside from being a CIO, Joe is a dynamic author, speaker, and coach. He has over 35 years of success leading IT organizations and driving meaningful business results in the process. His game-changing IT Business Partner Program bridges the chasm between business stakeholders and IT organizations. Joe is a frequent keynote speaker on this subject where he shares his vision at industry events across the country. His best-selling book, IT Business Partnerships: A Field Guide was named a top-ten read for CIOs in 2014. Joe is Board Chair of the Business Relationship Management Institute, an organization dedicated to the advancement of BRM capability worldwide. Joe is also the founder of CIO Mentor, LLC, a consultancy focused on helping companies leverage the power of technology to achieve profit-driven business results. He is a two-time CIO of the Year award winner in both Charlotte (2015) and Minneapolis (2013). He is currently VP-CIO of SnapAV and is responsible for an innovative award-winning IoT-based platform called OvrC (pronounced “oversee”) that is changing the way home and SMB integrators serve their customers.
