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.
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.
Thanks to the support throughout the Georgia technology community, GeorgiaCIO received 165 nominations last year, and close to 1,000 IT professionals representing over 300 companies gathered to honor the best-of-the-best of Georgia’s technology leaders at the CIO Awards.
