As founder and CEO of The Feld Group—based in Dallas, Texas—Feld built a team of information technology executives that enabled dramatic results in Fortune 500 companies through the transformation of their own IT organizations. The Feld Group was acquired by EDS in 2004, which was subsequently purchased by Hewlett-Packard in 2008. In September 2008, Feld retired as a senior executive vice president and member of EDS’ Executive Committee.  The Feld Group was re-launched as a Leadership Development firm in 2009.

Feld has garnered accolades from numerous sources, including Business 2.0 and Computerworld magazines. He has also been featured in InformationWeek and CIO magazines, which placed him among its “5 Top CIOs” in 2001. In 1997, Feld was named “One of the 12 Most Influential IT Executives of the Past Decade” by CIOmagazine and Computerworld named him as one of “25 IT People to Watch in 1998.” His articles on IT leadership topics have appeared regularly in Computerworld Executive Suite, Harvard Business Review, and CIOmagazine.  He has received several industry awards, including the Smithsonian Award for Technology Excellence and the Carnegie Mellon Award for Innovative Technology.  In addition, The Feld Group’s work has been the subject of multiple case studies appearing in the Harvard Business School, MIT and McKinsey Quarterly.
