The CIO of the Year ORBIE Leadership Award will be presented this year to Mary Gendron, who serves as senior vice president and chief information officer at Qualcomm Incorporated.
Gendron was chosen for the honor in large part due to her proven track record of successful technology leadership throughout her career. She has made significant contributions to – and had a meaningful impact within the Southern California technology and business community, while inspiring others through her personal, professional and civic contributions.
For her exceptional work at Qualcomm and beyond, her accomplishments have been acknowledged by peers, industry leaders and prior ORBIE winners, and she is clearly deserving of this year’s honor.
The Los Angeles Business Journal had a conversation with Gendron to learn more about her innovative work at Qualcomm and her perspectives on the evolving role of CIOs and the IT landscape in general.
