IDG's Computerworld has named the City of Charlotte’s Chief Information Officer Jeff Stovall to the Premier 100 IT Leaders for 2012. The awards program spotlights 100 leaders from both the technology and business sides of companies for their exceptional technology leadership, innovative solutions to business challenges and effective management of IT strategies.
“It is an honor to be listed among such a list of exceptional leaders in the field of technology,” Stovall said. “It is also my pleasure to represent the public sector on this list, an area that is often overlooked in terms of its innovation and groundbreaking implementation of technology.” 
Stovall, his fellow honorees and their achievements will be honored in the February 27, 2012 issue of Computerworld, on and recognized during the Premier 100 IT Leaders Conference, being held March 11-13, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Stovall joined the City of Charlotte in May 2008 as its first Chief Information Officer. He oversees the formulation and evaluation of long- and short-term initiatives for e-Business, IT portfolio management, information security, business process improvement, technology project management and strategic planning, as well as the application of new technologies to solve business problems. Prior to joining the City, Stovall worked for Sprint Nextel, where he was director of IT merger integration planning.
Stovall received a master’s degree in Business Administration from the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia, and a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
