Companies must embrace digital transformation if they want to remain competitive. That requires hiring technology leaders who can build disruptive products that make transformation possible in the first place. Through that lens, every company is a technology company. Landing the right technology leader is more essential than it has ever been. But that can be tricky when the technology market itself is producing a series of IPOs or other significant liquidity events that keep talented tech leaders in place.
