DFW Chapter IT Executives of the Year
Past Winners: 1998 - Today

The IT Executive of the Year Award was created by the DFW SIM Chapter in 1998 to recognize excellence in IT management within the Dallas/Fort Worth area. During the first four years, recipients were recognized at a special reception at the Dallas Information Technology Exposition (ITEC) in June. In 2002, the DFW Chapter assumed complete ownership and control of the award. At the same time the Awards Ceremony was moved to coincide with the Annual DFW SIM Chapter’s Holiday Banquet in December. Initially only one winner per year was selected; however, starting in 2003, multiple awards were selected based upon the size of the IT organization. This continued until 2007, when the Board returned to the one-winner only rule (* Large firm was defined as greater than or equal to 100 IT/IS employees under nominee's supervision.).

Since 2005 the IT Executive of the Year Award has been held in conjunction with our Spring Kick-off Event, which is generally in March. This is an open meeting, and typically draws crowds of 200 or more members and guests.

2009 will be the 12th year of the award. Since its inception only 17 indivduals have been selected to win this award.
