Each year, the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Greater Pittsburgh CIO Group gather to honor the region’s top information technology executives at Pittsburgh CIO of the Year. 

This is your annual opportunity to recognize and honor the hard work of CIOs and CISOs for their accomplishments at the biggest celebratory event of the year honoring these unspoken heroes of the IT world.  Cocktails, dinner, and networking round out the night to make this the not-to-miss event for your IT department.  

About CIO of the Year 
Nominated by peers, industry colleagues, staff, supervisors, partners, and customers, deserving CIOs and CISOs are selected as finalists by the Greater Pittsburgh CIO Group and a steering committee comprised of PTC member companies.  

Companies of all sizes and types have great leadership in IT and security. Past finalists include executives from companies of all sizes, non-profits, and education. Each year, the Pittsburgh CIO Group also presents the CIO Choice Award, a lifetime achievement award that honors an industry veteran. 

2017 CIO of the Year will take place at the Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh.

At CIO of the year, you will:

Celebrate the most accomplished regional CIOs and CISOs
Learn about the current and future state of IT and IT security
Network with Pittsburgh’s top IT companies
Meet your next business connection

Nominees, including chief information officers or those in equivalent positions, are recognized for their innovation and creativity in planning and deploying their enterprise systems, future technology goals, management philosophy and service to the industry and community.  Chief security information officers that establish and maintain an enterprise’s vision, strategy and program to protect information assets and technologies are honored as key leaders in data security.
