Established in 1998, the Georgia CIO of the Year® Awards is the premier technology executive recognition program in the state. This annual event honors chief information officers who have demonstrated excellence in technology leadership. CIOs and those in equivalent positions are recognized in five categories: Global, Enterprise, Corporate, Emerging and Non-profit / Public Sector, and evaluated on innovation, leadership, business value creation, and community involvement.
Keynote speakers for this event have included the most recognizable names in technology: Tim Campos, CIO of Facebook; Bill Nuti, CEO of NCR; Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft; Anne Mulcahy, Chairwoman of Xerox; Mark Hurd, CEO of HP, and other technology industry veterans.
The Awards enjoys the active participation of more chief information officers than any other event in Georgia. It has sold-out for the past five years and was expanded in 2013 for a special 15th anniversary program, which brought over 1,000 technology professionals and included recognition of prior winners.
2015 nominations are now closed. Thank you to all those in the greater Atlanta technology community who nominated a CIO….your support created a record 165 nominations!
