The world’s #1 recognition program highlights the achievements of the industry’s top business technology executives, venture capitalists, board members and search executives and the impact they’re making on business and society.

Westport, CT — January 18, 2023 — HMG Strategy, the World’s #1 digital platform for enabling technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to announce the top executives nominated to its 2023 Global Leadership Institute Awards (GLIA) program along with other exciting changes being announced.

Since the inception of its Transformational CIO Awards in 2012, HMG Strategy has been recognizing the industry’s premier technology executives who are making a difference in their organizations through the industry’s most distinguished and recognizable global leadership awards program.

In 2020, HMG Strategy introduced the Global Technology Executives Who Matter Awards to recognize the top-performing Chief Information Officers, Chief Information Security Officers, Senior Technology Leaders, Venture Capitalists and Search Executives who have demonstrated unparalleled leadership in areas such as Innovation, Business Transformation and Digital Disruption.

Now entering its 14th year of recognizing the exceptional contributions of technology executives, HMG Strategy extended its recognition program beginning in 2021 to honor exemplary technology leaders and their teams who are making outstanding contributions to their organizations.

“The 2023 Global Leadership Institute Awards recognize truly outstanding technology executives for their courageous, empathetic and inclusive leadership in the face of a challenging socio-economic environment,” said Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO of HMG Strategy. “Unlike other pay-to-play recognition models, these dynamic global technology executives are being celebrated for their extraordinary leadership in helping to foster a culture of trust, to drive innovation, to reimagine the business and develop new go-to-market strategies with fellow members of the C-suite and line of business leaders. The 2023 Global Leadership Institute recognition model will flow throughout the agendas for our Executive Leadership Summits.”
