MTC Senior Partner and CEO Charlie Moran said, “We have sponsored this award every year since 2012 because as a professional services firm focused on serving higher education IT, we have had the privilege of working directly with some of the best leaders in higher education and it’s important to us to see outstanding leadership in the IT space get the same kind of recognition as other areas of the academy. Back when EDUCAUSE announced this sponsorship opportunity we knew immediately it was the perfect fit for our firm since it gave us a chance to be part of supporting and acknowledging those great IT leaders. We’ve enjoyed being the sponsor and getting to know each year’s award winners ever since.”
