We at Lone Star are proud of this recognition for John’s never ending passion and vision to develop best-in-class decision analysis tools like TruNavigator™
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Dallas, TX (8/30/12) The Metroplex Technology Business Council (MTBC), the largest technology trade organization in Texas, has named Lone Star Chief Technology Officer, John Volpi, its Tech Titans Corporate CTO of the Year. Lone Star is internationally recognized for its business and technology decision support, modeling, and simulation, and as a provider of advisory services addressing highly complex client issues.
Charlie Vogt, chair of the MTBC’s Tech Titans steering committee, said, “These pioneers are impacting tomorrow's technology today with their innovation, leadership and advocacy. Their groundbreaking advancements make a difference here and around the globe.”
The Tech Titans Corporate CTO Award recognizes the Corporate Technology Officer of a company based in the DFW Metroplex, who has demonstrated exceptional technical leadership, team building, creation and maintenance of a creative environment, and market awareness skills. Ideally, these skills should have fostered the inception and development of new technology that led to novel products, services, intellectual property, or processes that brought significant value to their company.
The MTBC recognized Mr. Volpi for his early work on smart phone base station antennas and offender tracking systems. His work with radio navigation in the days before GPS helped turn that technology into the low-cost system for navigation used today. His collaborative work ethic, desire to keep customers’ costs low, and influence on how to use these devices have made him a pioneer in technology.
Steve Roemerman, CEO of Lone Star, said, “We at Lone Star are proud of this recognition for John’s never ending passion and vision to develop best-in-class decision analysis tools like TruNavigator™.” “I was truly shocked, honored, and humbled by the award. I want to thank my two great partners, as well as the outstanding Lone Star team for their help and support. Without them, it would not have been possible,” John Volpi said.
The TruNavigator™ decision analysis engine has been recognized as a premier tool for use by the Department of Defense and in Enterprise applications. In a recent contract award to Lone Star, the Naval Air Systems Command indicated it is the only known company to provide a tool like TruNavigator™, which incorporates sophisticated Bayesian inferencing with Monte Carlo analysis into a highly scalable platform.
