24th Annual IT Executive of the Year Awards

Monday, December 13 | JW Marriott, Austin

Austin’s strong tech community is a major driver of our economic stability. We hear a lot about the role local tech CEOs play in that community, and they deserve attention. It’s important, though, to point the spotlight at the behind-the-scenes leaders who keep our enterprises in high-tech and otherwise humming.

Join us December 13 at JW Marriott in Austin, Texas to celebrate honorees and awardees at the annual IT Executive of the Year Awards. 

The annual IT Executive of the Year Awards showcases the excellent leadership behind the IT innovations created, problems solved, efficiencies gained, and resources optimized. They also help drive innovation in the IT field, attract much-needed technical talent to our local economy, build awareness of the contributions of Austin’s IT leaders, and elevate opportunities for students and recent graduates in computer science and related fields.

These awards seek to recognize current, senior information technology executives/CIOs in Austin or Central Texas area companies. The basis for recognition is leadership in the use of information technology within an organization.

Thank you to our Sponsors:

IT Awards Reception Sponsor: HTC Global Services

Annual SIM Austin Sponsors: Service Express, Proofpoint, genesis10, Rubrik and RealCom Solutions.

"For over a decade, SIM has been vital to me in creating and growing my professional network. It has afforded me the chance to meet and share experiences with IT leaders across the U.S. on a deep and broad basis. When I changed jobs in 2015 from Dallas to Austin, SIM Austin was instrumental in providing me a jumpstart to meeting like-minded IT leaders and acclimating to Austin much more quickly than I could have done without SIM. My SIM associations are not just network connections, they are truly friends and colleagues."
