TUCSON, Ariz., May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IDG's CIO announces Easterseals Blake Foundation as a recipient of the 2018 CIO 100. The 31st annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).

"Every year, we are honored to showcase the technology innovation and business value delivered by our CIO 100 award winners. Each of these companies has achieved notable success in accelerating businesses to the front lines of the digital revolution," said Maryfran Johnson, Executive Director of CIO Programs for CIO Events and the CIO Executive Council. "This year's winners are inspiring examples of how IT leadership, business partnerships and customer engagement can reshape the future."

"Operational efficiency is key to meeting the growing demand for our services across Southern Arizona," said Ema Kammeyer, Easterseals Blake Foundation CEO. "We are honored to be recognized with a CIO 100 award. We will continue to ensure maximum impact through transformative IT innovations on behalf of the more than 30,000 children and families we serve."

This award resulted from a portfolio of information technology initiatives developed by now former Chief Information Officer Thomas Sebastian Wolfe, who remains with Easterseals Blake Foundation in a part-time CIO advisor role, and the small, but high-performing, project team he formed, which included Shaun Harris, Christopher Ragazzo, Mark San Diego, Jr., and Jerry Peterson.

Mr. Wolfe explains, "While efficient value creation from information technology investments is important in any industry, it is especially important to non-profits with limited capital.  I'm glad I was able to lead the organization in this information technology transformation that improved enterprise services performance, availability, security, and capabilities, while also reducing costs, to benefit its worthy mission, and I look forward to a continued relationship as a CIO advisor."

Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at The CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, to be held Wednesday, August 15th, at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

About the CIO 100
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' evaluations and selected the final 100.
