Jim Noga, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, recently received the Leadership CIO of the Year® ORBIE®, the premier technology executive recognition program of its kind.

The award is credit to his excellence and effectiveness in technology leadership. Jim has been the CIO at Partners since 2011, after serving as the CIO for Massachusetts General Hospital for 13 years.

“The individuals who have earned these awards are the best and brightest leaders – not just within New England chief information officers, but in the categories they represent,” said Lisa LaRoque, Executive Director of BostonCIO. “In today’s interconnected world, organizations that win in the marketplace benefit from the superior strategic planning and day-to-day execution these CIOs bring to the table.”

In recognition of the honor, Boston CIO Leadership Association put together a brief video interview showcasing Jim’s leadership. Learn Jim’s story firsthand and hear from his colleagues, Scott MacLean, Deputy CIO; Peter Markell, Executive Vice President of Administration and Finance, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer and Gregg Meyer, MD, Chief Clinical Officer.

Also, in this special section of the Boston Business Journal, Jim talks about his leadership and decision-making style: Relying on his vast internal and external network of colleagues and instituting a unique structure for making decisions in a complex environment.

“I often tell people everything I know I’ve learned in the past 60 days,” Jim said. “I’ve always been a student. I’ve always enjoyed learning. I’ve always been driven to understand what’s on the horizon.”
