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 top-tier technology executives for their courageous, empathetic and inclusive leadership in the face of a global health crisis and turbulent socio-economic challenges,” said Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO of HMG Strategy. “Unlike other pay-to-play awards models, these dynamic global technology executives are being recognized 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 in incredibly challenging times. The 2023 Global Leadership Institute recognition model will cascade throughout the agendas for our Executive Leadership Summits.” World-class global technology executives nominated for HMG Strategy’s 2023 Global Leadership Institute Awards include: RootaAlmeidaHead of Security Governance, Amazon StoresBhavaniAmirthalingamSVP, Chief Digital & Information Officer, AmerenJudithApshagoVice President, Information Technology, AmtrakChrisBediChief Digital and Information Officer, ServiceNowPatrickBenoitGlobal Chief Information Security Officer, Brink'sNellsonBurnsCo-Owner, Destination ITJoeCarrollCIO, CITGOStefanieCauseyOCM Leader, Enterprise Operations & Services Quote-to -Cash Transformation, IBMMamathaChamarthiGlobal SVP of Software Business and Product Management P&L, StellantisMaxChanCIO, AvnetBrookColangeloVP & CIO, WatersJayFerroEVP, Chief Information & Technology Officer, ClarioUrsFoleyBoard Member, Provident Bank, Greenlight ReMichaelGolzSVP, Head of Customer Advisory North America, SAPKenGradySVP & CIO, IDEXX LaboratoriesChuckGrayPartner, Egon ZehnderJeffGraysonFormer Chief Digital and Technology Officer, Orangetheory FitnessRoccoGrilloManaging Director - Global Cyber Risk Services & Incident Response Investigation, Alvarez & MarsalAnjanaHarveSVP & CIO, Fresenius Medical CareJamieHeadChief Digital & Technology Officer, Ocean SprayArtHopkinsGlobal Co-Leader of Technology Officers Practice, Russell Reynolds AssociatesJenniferHopperCIO, Save-A-LotSteveHoytExecutive Director Information Technology Aspen NeuroscienceBipinJayarajVP, CIO, Rogers CorporationDaphneJonesBoard Member;
