Imagine accepting the CIO job at Facebook right as the social media network was about to take off.

On this special two-part episode of IT Visionaries, Tim joins us to share that story and so much more, including how he lept from Facebook into his own start-up, Woven, what it means to be a CIO, the importance of integration and mentorship, and even a few stories about Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg.

From an initial dream of being a doctor to interning with NASA to eventually landing in the C-Suite at Intuit, Atticus Tysen (LinkedIn) has traveled a long and winding road.
