The Chief’s Table Podcast | The Change Management Cycle, Relationship Building and Working Motherhood with Kristina Paschall, Executive Vice President and Chief Information and Digital Officer of JBT Corporation

On this episode of The Chief’s Table, Kristina Paschall, Executive Vice President and Chief Information and Digital Officer of JBT, joins host Kim Stapleton for a conversation about motivation, gratitude, life lessons, and more. In her role at JBT, Kristina is responsible for the company’s global IT team, which includes everything from IT security to infrastructure applications. Her responsibilities also include building the digital capabilities for all JBT machines and products.
   
During her conversation with Kim, Kristina shares that her primary motivation at work is being at a place that operates with a high degree of integrity and working with other ambitious professionals. She describes how her calm demeanor allows her to move quickly through the change management cycle but warns that “every good trait has a downside when it's used in excess,” and explains that she tries not to let her desire for consensus cloud her judgement when making executive decisions. 

Kristina also discusses some of the important lessons she has learned over the course of her career, the importance of relationship building at work and advice for young professionals. Particularly, as working mothers, Kim and Kristina talk about societal expectations for women in the workplace and how they weigh those expectations against their own needs and desires, as well as the needs of their families.
