first because IT team is mainly based on works with technology so mainly
technologist comes first instead of manager first.

Relationship Between CIOs and CEOs
CEOs value a business perspective most of all, based on the frequency
with which it was mentioned and the priority it was given. "The CIO
needs to be the bridge from information technology to the rest of the
company. He needs to look ahead and align technical benefits with
company needs". The CIO has to "make sure that what the user gets is
what they want, not what the CIO thinks they want".
Advice/ Suggestion
Need to go with those things that can create better appreciated relationship between organization and its employees.
