CIOs at Cathay and CityU win 2012 HK CIO awards

Cathay Pacific’s Tomasz Smaczny and Andy Chun from City University Hong Kong (CityU), were named last week as the winning CIOs in the Hong Kong CIO Awards 2012. The awards program is organized by Computerworld Hong Kong and CIO peer network CIO Connect and seeks to identify standout leaders of IT who demonstrate outstanding vision and execution in their role as a CIO and technology leader.

This was the second year of the awards program and two winners were selected by the panel of judges led by Judging Committee Chairperson, Nick Kirkland, chief executive at CIO Connect.

According to the judges, Tomasz at Cathay Pacific was singled out for, “his vision and leadership in transforming Cathay's IT, which has resulted in a quantum leap in the IT organization's strategic alignment and effectiveness.” Tomasz picked up the award for Large Enterprise CIO for 2012

"It is a great honor and I would like to thank the judging panel for their recognition of what Cathay's IT has achieved. The last three years were very challenging for us. Our success is a credit to the Cathay's IT team, their professionalism, dedication, perseverance and commitment to delivery of business value in spite of all odds and change resistance. In today's organizations IT plays a very crucial role in leading transformational changes and giving their companies significant competitive edge,” said Tomasz Smaczny, CIO at Cathay Pacific.

Meanwhile Andy Chun at CityU scooped the prize of Medium Enterprise CIO of 2012. He was identified by the judges as “an innovative leader in the transformational use of IT in education and his vision of the future in how to shape his organization through emerging technology.”

“The Hong Kong CIO Award is a great honor for CityU as a whole. Technology vision only happens with commitment and participation from everyone in the community. CityU is fortunate to have a strong track record as one of the most technologically progressive universities in the region, creating a very unique 21st century learning experience for our students,” said Andy Chun, CIO at CityU.

CIOs from industry-leading companies in Hong Kong were invited to submit and entries were accepted as long as the CIO was based in Hong Kong and Macau. Both local and multinational firms were also accepted during the submission process which this year featured the new categories of Large and Medium Enterprise CIO winners.

CIOs who led companies with an IT budget of USD10 million and above were deemed to be “Large Enterprise.” This year’s awards sought to recognize the different achievements of CIOs from large enterprises as well as from medium businesses as the requirements are found to be quite distinct from each other.

“We have found that there is a huge difference that scale brings to an enterprise and that is the basis for differentiating the awards, said Nick Kirkland, Chairperson of the Judging Committee and also chief executive at CIO Connect, whose network now spans UK, Hong Kong and also Singapore.

“Scale impacts location, culture, complexity and creates different challenges which required us to evaluate large and medium enterprise CIOs separately,” he added.

Award nominees had to demonstrate to the judges that their work had made significant contributions to business in the following key areas:

  • Technology-led or technology-enabled innovation
  • Creation of significant business value
  • Delivery of business/technology transformation
  • Development of IT organization and staff

The Awards Judging Committee was headed by Kirkland at CIO Connect and made up of some of Hong Kong’s most respected current and former IT leaders. These included: Joe Locandro, Director of Group IT at CLP (Winner of Overall CIO of the Year 2011); Sunny Lee, Executive Director of IT at HK Jockey Club (Outstanding CIO Achievement Winner 2011); YB Yeung, formerly at HSBC; Tom Sheppard, formerly at Cable and Wireless HKT, Raymond Wong, formerly at Immigration Department, HKSAR Government; and Edward Nicol, formerly at Cathay Pacific.
