It is a central outcome of an organization focusing a portion of its thinking and action around well defined, accessible institutional data. Bucknell is certainly taking a leadership role in this space.”

“We are thrilled to promote the dynamic CIOs who are leading today’s midmarket companies to great success by leveraging the power of IT to make a positive impact and transform the way their organization does business,” said Lisa MacKenzie, SVP XChange Events. “The Midmarket is integral to today’s economy, and its leaders deserve recognition for their dedication to innovation and constant pursuit of excellence. We congratulate these forward-thinking executives and wish each of them continued success.”
