Innovative CTO Honored by Technology Community

May 9, 2019


Equifax CTO Bryson Koehler was honored by more than 900 people including 60+ Georgia CTOs and CIOs at the TechBridge black-tie gala for his innovative leadership and his commitment to helping nonprofit organizations embrace technology solutions to strengthen their effectiveness.

Anthem, Inc. CTO Ed Smith was the first to recognize Bryson at a special reception hosted by NorthState Technology Solutions. Atlanta tech community’s “favorite son” was subsequently celebrated by Bill VanCuren, CIO of NCR, Vish Narendra, CIO Graphic Packaging International, Tom Hall, SVP & CIO of Genuine Parts, Aaron Gwinner, Global IT Transformations for The Coca-Cola Company, Cameron Clayton, CEO, The Weather Company, Jaspal Sagoo, CIO of the Centers for Disease Control and several dozen other CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and IT executives many of home serve as Executive Ambassadors.

Equifax SVP, CIO of Global Consumer Solutions Lo Li and David Stiffler of Equifax Global Corporate Social Responsibility (St. Louis) were on hand at the Digital Ball ceremonies to congratulate Bryson and showcase the work Equifax is doing to help people build credit in low-opportunity Atlanta Westside neighborhoods through credit unions and nonprofits like Westside on the Rise.

The Ed Steinike CIO Award is named in memory of longtime TechBridge supporter Ed Steinike who worked for General Electric and The Coca-Cola Company. Bryson shares the TechBridge spotlight in 2019 with Carol B. Tomé, CFO & EVP of The Home Depot who was also recognized by the technology community for her leadership with nonprofit organizations as a Community Leader.

TechBridge thanked Bryson for helping the organization bring “business” technologies to homeless shelters, food pantries, workforce development job training and other charitable organizations, like Atlanta Habitat for Humanity where Bryson Koehler serves as a volunteer member of the Board of Directors.
