2020 Global Technology Executives Who Matter Awards

Today, every company is a technology company. As a result, CEOs fully expect technology executives to come armed with fresh ideas for leveraging technology to deliver new waves of business value and drive future growth for their companies. 

CIOs, CTOs, CISOs and other C-suite technology executives play a crucial role in placing their organizations on the fast track to groundbreaking transformation. But success doesn’t occur in a vacuum – those executives who are able to summon courageous leadership, think differently and instill a passion within their teams are able to lead, reimagine and reinvent their companies and deliver winning business formulas that can provide a competitive edge.
