Arizona Technology Council Announces New Award Category for the 2019 Governor's Celebration of Innovation Awards

The Arizona Technology Council, in partnership with the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), will honor technology leaders and innovators from across the state at the 16th annual Governor's Celebration of Innovation Awards (GCOI) on October 24, 2019, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The annual black-tie event attracts more than 850 attendees each year for a night of networking, dining and entertainment.

This year, MSS Business Transformation will be presenting the event's newest accolade, the MSS Business Transformation Leader of the Year Award. This honor will be given to an executive or an organization (for-profit or not-for-profit) that has achieved significant business success driving positive, transformational change in their organization with measurable outcomes in 2018.

"Recognizing innovation also includes acknowledging great leaders and that's why the Council is so pleased to add this new category to the 2019 Governor's Celebration of Innovation Awards," said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO, Arizona Technology Council. "A great leader innovates, disrupts and creates the right environment for change to flourish. And being a transformative leader takes more than just ingenuity ? it takes the courage to be different."

Additional requirements for nominations to be considered include:

"Arizona is recognized as one of the top states for companies on the cutting edge of technology and innovation," said David Lee, marketing director at MSS Business Transformation. "Much of Arizona's progress can be directly attributed to forward-thinking, responsive leaders who invigorate the business landscape. It's important to recognize and honor outstanding leadership that provides a positive driving force for change."

The GCOI Awards are open to all Arizona companies. Membership in the Arizona Technology Council is not required to submit a nomination. Visit www.aztechcouncil.org/event/gcoi2019 to download the nomination forms. Submit completed nomination forms to events@aztechcouncil.org by Friday, August 2, 2019.
