At the 2016 Global CIO Executive Summit, we celebrated remarkable leadership within our CIO community at the 2016 Breakaway Leadership Awards Gala.

The Breakaway Leadership Award honors CIOs and senior security executives who demonstrate exceptional leadership. Qualified CIOs were nominated by their peers, describing how their business impact drives results across the C-suite and the enterprise. A distinguished voting panel, including past award recipients and co-chairs of the event, reviewed and voted on nominees to determine the ten 2016 Breakaway Leadership Award finalists. Attendees at the Global CIO Executive Summit voted to determine the five 2016 Breakaway Leadership Award recipients:

• Mike Martiny, VP, Global Bus. Solutions & CIO, General Mills, Inc.
• Linda W. Clement-Holmes, CIO, The Procter & Gamble Company
• Howard Melnick, SVP & Global CIO, Ralph Lauren Corp.
