Sept. 10, 2020 (Courtesy of the Jacksonville Business Journal) Every day, men and women across the First Coast are making decisions about technology that are helping their companies and the broader economy grow.
Oftentimes, those decisions are made behind the scenes, and while the impact might be felt broadly, the decision makers might not be as well known.
As Jacksonville’s tech sector grows, we think it’s important for those who are helping shape it to be properly recognized.
Accordingly, the Jacksonville Business Journal is honoring these role models for the second year. The Technology Leader of the Year award, presented by CDW, is open to key executives whose knowledge and skill with technology has helped them grow and shape their companies.
Selected with the help of local technology professionals, honorees were chosen based on their innovation in strategic thought and planning, success in implementing technological solutions, management effectiveness and community involvement.
