The Changing Landscape of Tech Leadership:

With events like the Pittsburgh CIO of the Year Awards, the Tech Council always looks for reasons to celebrate. We do that to ensure that the region and beyond know about the companies, the people and the tech that makes our worlds move. As always, it is an exciting night where after many weeks of preparation, capturing personal stories and setting the stage for a festive yet noteworthy evening, the team at the Tech Council, remains steadfast at making such an event filled with honor and humility. The CIOs and CISOs and additional categories of Trailblazers remind me that the magic of keeping companies high performing is truly resting on the shoulders of technology employees.
