New for 2019! 2018 finalists and 2019 nominees may nominate a member of his/her staff for the Rising Star Award. This award recognizes up and coming IT leaders from the Pittsburgh region. It will be awarded the same night as CIO of the Year.
Each year, the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Greater Pittsburgh CIO Group gather to honor the region’s top information technology executives at Pittsburgh CIO of the Year.
This is your annual opportunity to recognize and honor the hard work of CIOs and CISOs for their accomplishments at the biggest celebratory event of the year honoring these unspoken heroes of the IT world. Cocktails, dinner, and networking round out the night to make this the not-to-miss event for your IT department.
Past finalists include executives from companies of all sizes, non-profits, and education. Each year, the overall most deserving finalist, is presented with the CIO Choice Award.
· Who should nominate? - Peers, industry colleagues, staff, supervisors, partners, vendors, customers, CIOs, and CISOs
· Who should be nominated? - Companies of all sizes and types have great leadership in IT and security. Please consider nominating IT and security executives from for-profit companies of all sizes, non-profits, and education.
· What is the judging process? - Deserving CIOs and CISOs nominees are selected by the Greater Pittsburgh CIO Group and a steering committee comprised of PTC member companies.
· Is there a lifetime achievement award? - Each year, the Pittsburgh CIO Group also presents the CIO Choice Award, a lifetime achievement award that honors an industry veteran. The CIO Group selects this individual independently from the CIO of the Year nominations.
