Nashville, which was recently named by Google as one of seven inaugural cites to participate in its Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hub Network, is booming with innovation, and Broadcast Music, Inc. is leading the way. The Nashville Technology Council, which is dedicated to promoting and connecting Middle Tennessee’s tech community, honored BMI’s Senior Vice President of Business Operations and Technology Jim King with its prestigious 2013 Chief Technology Officer of the Year Award. The awards ceremony took place at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s new CMA Theater on January 30, 2014, to a sold-out crowd.
The winner of the CTO of the Year award, according to the NTC, “must have driven innovation and delivered value to their organization and its customers through their visionary leadership of a technology-based product or service development or delivery. These high-level candidates must be leaders in their organization and have made a difference that positively impacts Tennessee.” King, who works closely with his staff and all other BMI business sectors, said, “BMI is being recognized as a place for technological innovation, and this award is representative of the work of our entire team.”
In 2013, under King’s leadership, BMI also ranked number 26 in InformationWeek’s top 500 list of innovative companies. Congratulations, Jim, on this latest honor!
