BLUE BELL, Pa., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada of Unisys was recently named 2010 Government Contractor CTO Innovator of the Year in the large business category by the Northern Virginia Technology Council and Washington Technology magazine.
Puvvada accepted the award at NVTC's Annual TechCelebration Banquet held Oct. 19 in McLean, Va.
The inaugural award honors chief technology officers within the region's government contracting community for their critical contributions to achieving results for their customers and their leadership within their own companies.
NVTC and Washington Technology recognized Puvvada for breaking out of the traditional "techie" mold of CTO and serving as a visionary business leader who has made significant contributions to Unisys and its federal customers. Previously CTO of Unisys Federal Systems, Puvvada now serves as vice president and managing partner for civilian agencies at the Unisys federal division.
"It's rare to come across a professional like PV who strikes the perfect balance between business leader and technology expert," said Ted Davies, Unisys Federal Systems president.
"It is an honor to be selected for this award, and also very humbling given the impressive caliber of nominees from our industry," said Puvvada, who has been with Unisys for more than 20 years. "I appreciate this recognition from NVTC and Washington Technology and will work hard to continue serving the federal government technology community."
