Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal received word today that Computerworld has recognized Mark T. Masterson, Chief Information Officer, as a 2014 Premier 100 IT Leaders honoree.
This year’s Premier 100 spotlights 100 leaders for their exceptional technology leadership and innovative approaches to challenges.
“Mark has created a culture of excellence in our Information Technology team, highlighted by the national recognition he has received,” Huppenthal said. “This award is further evidence that his approach to technology and the investments made thus far in the replacement of our outdated data system is the right course of action to ensure student success in the future.”
The Premier 100 program was created in 2000 to spotlight individuals who have had a positive impact on their organizations through technology. These are individuals who manage internal IT organizations, mentor and motivate their IT teams and colleagues, create a positive work environment, envision innovative solutions to challenges and effectively manage and execute IT strategies. Each year, only 100 honorees worldwide are selected to receive this life-time recognition award.
“The Premier 100 awards program, now in its 15th year, shines a well-deserved spotlight on a group of talented, creative and hard-working men and women,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “These IT executives are driving technology innovation in business, education and government across the country and around the world.”
“Technology advances quickly, and these leaders excel at keeping pace with the changing needs of customers and employees, and making fast technology decisions that map to their organizations’ top priorities,” Finnie said. “We are privileged to recognize the leadership and achievements of the 2014 Premier 100 honorees.”
The Premier 100 awards ceremony will be one of the highlights of Computerworld’s annual Premier 100 IT Leadership Conference, to be held March 2-4, 2014, at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona. The conference, to be attended by more than 350 influential senior IT managers, will showcase honorees and other IT innovators as they discuss how to create competitive IT organizations.
