"One of Mansfield Oil's core values is to lead innovation in the traditional as well as the alternative energy industries," said Michael Mansfield, CEO of Mansfield Oil Company. "To be an industry innovator, a company has to innovate internally, too. Doug Haugh, Mansfield Oil's CIO, recognized this need and led the company to launch several new customer solutions that expand our service capability, improve customer retention and satisfaction, and directly drive revenue and earnings growth."
“I’m proud of our team’s ability to execute on virtualizing our infrastructure and applications, and continuing to advance their application development capabilities while integrating an expanded network of developing partners; it’s an awful lot to juggle at one time,” stated Doug Haugh when commenting on the CIO 100 award. “I’m also pleased to announce that we’ll be expanding the team and increasing our focus on customer facing technology and solutions with the addition of Hob Hairston as our vice president of business technology.” Mr. Hairston joins the company from IBM where he was serving as a senior supply chain consultant in the energy industry. Previously, Hairston has worked nearly all the past 15 years in the energy industry with FuelQuest and Accenture.
About the CIO 100 Awards
The recipients of this year's CIO 100 award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of judges reviewed the applications in depth, looking for unique practices and substantial results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' recommendations and voted on the final 100. Once the top 100 honorees were selected, several honorees were chosen to receive an additional special award. The recipients of this special award will be revealed at the CIO 100 awards ceremony in August.
