The CIO Lifetime Achievement Award is a part of the Journal’s annual Technology Awards. The awards honor the chief information officers and chief technology officers who lead their organizations in delivering business value and innovative use of IT. The recipient must be a technology veteran with more than ten years of experience in the industry, with unique vision and accomplishments that have propelled their company to lead the way in technology.
Griffin received the award his extraordinary leadership qualities as head of the Fleet Advantage IT team. He has more than 24 years of experience in technology development and strategic planning for major technological and informational organizations. Griffin’s career initially began in software, where he grew his own company from inception to more than 65 employees in just eight years. Prior to joining Fleet Advantage, Griffin led a global user migration of more than 22,000 users from a legacy domain into a new domain that upgraded their user-base technology platforms.
