Downers Grove, Ill. – CompTIA, the leading nonprofit association for the global technology industry, announced today that it is accepting nominations for its 2020 Spotlight Awards, recognizing excellence and leadership in the U.S. technology sector.
Nominations may be submitted through June 30, 2020. Award winners will be announced in late July and recognized during ChannelCon Online 2020 in early August.
“Our Spotlight Awards recognize individuals from CompTIA Corporate Member companies whose commitments to diversity, leadership, mentoring and service stand out from the crowd,” said Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president for industry relations at CompTIA.
“Some of these role models have decades of experience in the business of technology, while others are in the early days of their careers,” Hammervik continued. “But they all have earned the respect and gratitude of their peers for their efforts to make a great industry even greater.”
CompTIA Spotlight Awards will be presented in four categories.
