Lutz wins CIO AwardSep. 2, 2015, 4:43 PM
John Lutz, vice chancellor for information technology at Vanderbilt, has been honored by the Nashville Business Journal as one of Middle Tennessee’s top CIOs, the journal announced Sept. 2.
“We have accomplished quite a bit since Vanderbilt IT’s creation in 2013,” Lutz said. “This award is truly a reflection of our team’s commitment to our founding principles, dedication to serving our customers, and determination to take on challenging projects.”
According to the announcement, candidates first had to be nominated by another person before being considered for the award. NBJ then invited each nominee to fill out a questionnaire to be scored by a panel of judges.
“Our CIO awards winners are the top technological executives in Middle Tennessee who are using IT in innovative ways to create a competitive advantage, optimize business procedures, enable company growth and impact the company’s bottom line,” said Alison Nash, associate editor at NBJ.
Lutz is one of three CIOs honored within the category of Institution/Nonprofit. NBJ will host an awards luncheon on Oct. 23 to honor all of the winners.
