Results of the 2019 SIM Leader of the Year Award

The SIM Leader of the Year Award recognizes members who contributed to the growth, advancement, and excellence of SIM at the chapter level. This year, four recipients were chosen by a panel of six judges and will be formally recognized at SIM Connect Live on December 15. Learn more at www.simconnectlive.com.

We are grateful to all 14 nominees who individually and collectively exemplify a commitment to building their local communities and living SIM’s brand “where IT leaders connect.”  We also want to thank the six judges representing a cross section of the country: 

Angelo Morello, Leader of the Year Chair
Heidi Holdener, LOY Judge
David Jackson, LOY Judge and Past Award Recipient
Pradeep Kumar, LOY Judge and Past Award Recipient
Helen Norris, LOY Judge
Joseph Puglisi, LOY Judge and Past Award Recipient
Bob Rouse, LOY Judge and Past Award Recipient

Given the record number and the strength of the nominees, the judges felt it especially difficult to choose the award recipients, but in a carefully governed and objective scoring process, four finalists stood out. This year’s SIM Chapter Leaders of the Year are:

  • Cindy McKenzie, Southern California
  • Matt Nerney, Boston
  • Elizabeth Decker, South Florida
  • Robert Jones, Charlotte

Congratulations to the 2019 SIM Chapter Leaders of the Year!
