Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Lisa LaRoque of the Georgia CIO Leadership Association and Jay Ferro of the American Cancer Society recently joined together to discuss the changing role of Chief Information Officers on the April 3, 2014 segment of Atlanta Technology Leaders on Business RadioX®.
Lisa LaRoque, Executive Director at Georgia CIO Leadership Association, discussed the power a CIO holds, while detailing the role that the Georgia CIO Leadership Association plays. “The Association offers a means by which CIOs across Georgia can interact, share ideas, and make businesses run more smoothly.”
LaRoque also discussed the CIO of the Year award, of which Jay Ferro was a recipient in 2011. She noted that this year was a record-breaking year for nominations, with more than 150 nominations submitted. “We truly want to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of CIOs,” she said.
Ferro, Chief Information Officer for the American Cancer Society and Chair of the Georgia CIO Leadership Association, joined in the discussion and posited that today’s CIOs are more than just technologists: they are business leaders, innovators, integrators, and more. Increasingly, CIOs are being recognized for their leadership role, and thus the Georgia CIO Leadership Association becomes more crucial.
“We are blessed in Atlanta thanks to organizations like Business RadioX,” Ferro said. “It’s great that technology leaders can come together and share ideas. It’s really exciting.”
