The Boston CIO of the Year Awards program is the premier technology executive recognition program that honors Boston-based CIOs who have demonstrated excellence in technology leadership. The Enterprisers Project had the privilege of attending this prestigious ceremony, which drew over 500 guests representing top New England organizations and their technology partners.

Since the inception of the CIO of the Year® ORBIE® Awards in 1998, over 500 CIOs have been honored as finalists and over 100 CIO of the Year winners have received the ORBIE Award. This year, more than 90 CIOs were nominated by their peers for the Boston ORBIE Awards program, which recognizes the outstanding accomplishments and leadership of CIOs in five categories: Leadership, Global, Enterprise, Corporate, and Nonprofit.

Nominated CIOs were judged via a competitive and rigorous process conducted by a panel of previous ORBIE Award winners, CIO peers, and industry experts. To be considered for the award, CIOs are evaluated against specific criteria including innovation, leadership and management effectiveness, business value creation, and community involvement – both in and outside of their organization. The winners were announced in June.
