WESTPORT, Conn. — December 20, 2019 — Digital disruption and rapid technological advancement are forcing today’s enterprises to reimagine and reinvent themselves—a feat that requires visionary, transformative leadership. CIOs, CTOs, CISOs and other C-suite executives are uniquely poised to lead these efforts by identifying and executing on opportunities to leverage technology to deliver business value and growth.

In recognition of those technology frontrunners, venture capitalists and search executives who have exhibited bold leadership and unparalleled dedication to innovation, business transformation and talent development, HMG Strategy announces its 2020 Global Technology Executives Who Matter Awards.

“Now more than ever, technology executives hold a critical stake in the future success of their organizations,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO of HMG Strategy. “With these awards, we honor the fearless industry leaders who are strategically driving change, innovation and business value—all while inspiring passion and growth within their teams.”

Since 2012, HMG Strategy has acknowledged the trailblazing technology executives who are making a difference in their organizations and respective markets through its Top Technology Executives to Watch Awards and Transformational CIO Awards. Now, with the introduction of the HMG Strategy 2020 Global Technology Executives Who Matter Awards, the company is extending its recognition program to honor the elite technology leaders who are serving as lightning rods for change in their own enterprises and beyond.

An advisory board of distinguished experts associated with HMG Strategy’s CIO & CISO Executive Leadership Alliance (CELA) program will contribute to the selection process, judging nominees for their business accomplishments in each of five categories: Innovation, Business Transformation, Courageous Leadership, Digital Disruption and Talent Development.

All nominations must be submitted via the HMG Strategy site by December 31, 2019. The first round of award recipients will be notified in January 2020.
