This from the ReedSmith site:
"The Premier 100 awards program shines a spotlight on the best of IT leadership and innovation," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "Despite a tough economy, these senior IT leaders are seizing this rare moment to steer measured growth, embark on innovative pilots and build loyalty in their most valued workers. We’re pleased to honor the achievements of these 100 men and women who epitomize calm and steady IT leadership.”
"This is a well-deserved honor for Tom," said Gregory B. Jordan, Global Managing Partner of the firm. "As our CKO, he has led several key initiatives that have improved our operation and enhanced our understanding of our business and our clients. We applaud the recognition he has earned from Computerworld for his contributions to the firm."
A renowned speaker and author, with more than 100 conferences and articles to his credit, Tom is a recognized leader in the IT industry. He was named 2005 Legal IT Innovator of the Year by the Legal IT Forum, was featured on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2005 issue of Law Firm Inc. magazine, and was a member of the management team that won the CIO 100 Award in 2002 from CIO Magazine.
As we know too well, Tom was also awarded the ILTA SharePoint Innovator of the Year for 2009 for the cracking ouRSpace global Intranet project (yippee!), and was the winner of the iManage Matter Centric Design at ILTA in 2008 (simplistic yippee!).
We say a massive congratulations to our old (he's still looking young though) pal Tom. This is great recognition and sees him flying the flag solo as the only winner from the legal space and the only one with a core "knowledge management" remit as their first priority.
