Personal shortage during and after the pandemic

Achmet Hakan Goral Cio Boutique Rugs.

BoutiqueRugs is a company based in the US, but mostly working remotely. We will talk about the possibilities of remote access and how the pandemic has affected the business, how you can find solutions to optimize resources for remote access.

Prior to joining BoutiqueRugs, Achmet Hakan worked in the aviation field. The pandemic has really had a big impact on the aviation industry. Some airports were forced to temporarily close. And due to the current circumstances, people no longer want to travel the same way they used to. Many travel now just for fun. As a result, companies have reduced staff. In the case of Achmet Hakan, about 30% of the employees were fired. This has become good ground for the development of eCommerce.

Now Achmet Hakan is selling carpets. In just one year, their company grew by 300%. Since it has become commonplace for people to make purchases from home, as well as go shopping online.


The international IT professionals' community has announced the 'Top 100 IT Leaders' project. It is a global initiative that allows top IT managers to share their experience, expand their professional network and showcase the best digitalization practices of their companies. Here we will answer the basic questions about the project.

The editors of Global CIO discussed with Ahmet Hakan Göral, CIO at Boutique Rugs and winner of the Project of the Year 2023 contest, his current projects, the approach to digital transformation and the specifics of the role of CIO in retail.

April was full of new initiatives from vendors as well as some fascinating news on the technology front. With Olympics in Paris approaching, more  news will be flowing in from the capital of France.

My profession, the role of CIO, unfortunately means that sometimes I come to a company to replace another CIO. Presumably, the previous CIO did not suit the company, and they decided to replace him or her.
