Albert Di Rienzo, Blue Highway’s President and CEO, was honored with the award of ‘Most Valuable Thought Leader’ at the Frost and Sullivan Executive MindXchange Conference in San Francisco March 14-16.
Di Rienzo received this award in 2006. However, only two people have ever been honored with this award at the conference within a 10-year period, Di Rienzo is one of them.
“The caliber of people at this conference is what makes this award so exceptional,” says Di Rienzo.
The peers at the conference, ranging in the academics, medical and government fields vote on the award. At least 100 top (C-Level) executives were at this conference.
Gabe Manzano, Director of Thought Leadership & Business Development at Frost & Sullivan, says the award is based on a variety of factors. “We look at comments from audience members, sponsors and facilitators. The event producer and national sales director also give their recommendation based on observation onsite,” Manzano said.
Other considerations included the number of sessions the Thought Leader assists in and how much the person adds to the value of the overall series at the conference.
Blue Highway continuously participates in academic and industry advisory boards in relation to technology leadership and disruptive innovations within the global healthcare ecosystem.
In addition to Frost & Sullivan, Di Rienzo serves on the CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity Innovation and Entrepreneurship Advisory Board, Columbia University Center for Advanced Information Management External Advisory Board, Cornell University Biomedical Engineering Advisory Board, Excell Partners Technical Advisory Board, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Science & Technology Alliance, Syracuse University Center for Advanced Systems & Engineering Advisory Board and Syracuse University College of Engineering & Computer Science Dean’s Council.
