A recent tech industry outlook analysis we covered in the Los Angeles Business Journal projected growth of another five percent across the global tech sector this year. Growth in the U.S. market is expected to follow suit. Consistent with the higher year-over-year growth projection, CompTIA’s “IT Industry Business Confidence Index” now sits near its all-time high. In short, companies are investing more in high tech. The positive sentiment about technology across all businesses continues to mount and innovative technology, more than ever, is considered among the most essential tools in the corporate sector.
This also means that the professionals who make the tech-related decisions are more important than ever. CTOs and their teams play a crucial role in making Los Angeles businesses, institutions and nonprofit groups successful. Their decisions often impact all aspects of a business, including their company’s growth, profitability, functionality and competitiveness in the marketplace.
This is our seventh year of celebrating the cream of the proverbial crop among Los Angeles’ finest IT leadership minds with an awards event for those who have their hands on the steering wheels of new technology.
Our annual Los Angeles Business Journal CTO Awards, held Wednesday, April 18th at the City Club LA, gives us the opportunity to stop for a moment and applaud the IT inventiveness and technological achievements of the corporate space’s hi-tech men and women – the often unsung architects and enablers of our companies’ operational successes.
So for all the great CTOs celebrated by our awards this year, we say thank you and congratulations! Your tireless contributions to the companies you serve and ultimately, our business community as a whole, are appreciated.

Best regards,
