Kurt Gollinger has joined CBI, a Detroit-based Cyber Security Services company. He has 20+ years of experience in business, technology, and executive leadership. Kurt will help oversee all facets of the company’s operations.

Prior to CBI, Kurt was the Chief Technology Officer North America at Fiat Chrysler, serving as the bridge between the technologists and business leaders. His responsibilities included the development and management of technology projects, cloud technologies, data centers, networks and overall operations, driving a digital strategy.

“Bringing a respected leader into the CBI executive team is always exciting, but Kurt brings a unique set of skills and experience that will have an immediate impact on CBI’s culture, operations, and customers.” Said Steve Barone, CEO of CBI.

Before joining FCA, Kurt spent 12 years at Harman. During his tenure at Harman, the company grew more than 300% and successfully completed many M&As, eventually leading to an acquisition by Samsung.
