CIOs and CTOs Celebration
Some of the DC region’s top CIOs and CTOs stepped away from their computers Thursday night to be honored at Disruption in Crystal City. They came from high-flying startups, publicly traded companies and government agencies, and they were chosen for their innovation and leadership of some of the most complex IT systems. SAIC board member Deb Dunie (right) brought Jeff Hart, Andy Steinem, and her husband, Justin Dunie.
comScore CTO Mike Brown (right) chats with Zuora's Vivek Reddy and QTS' James Gohng. Mike leads a 325-person team at comScore and helped launch the company in 1999.
Corporate Executive Board CIO Price Jett (right), here with Ram Prassad, was also honored Thursday night. He's been CIO for the last 13 years and oversees over 400 people. He also had a pet horse as a child and taught it how to fetch and count.
