Prolifics CTO Named IBM “Lifetime Champion”
July 26, 2021
Prolifics, a global digital transformation leader, is proud to announce that Greg Hodgkinson, our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and head of the Prolifics Global Innovation Center, has been named an IBM “Lifetime Champion,” its highest award for non-IBM employees.
Hodgkinson is now part of a select group of only 32 individuals worldwide who have been nominated by their peers and recognized by IBM as “innovative thought leaders in the technical community.” As further described by IBM, “The IBM Champion Lifetime Achievement award recognizes an IBM Champion who stands above their peers for service to the (IBM Champion) community. Over multiple years, these IBM Champions consistently excel and positively impact the community. They lead by example, are passionate about sharing knowledge, and provide constructive feedback to IBM.”
Hodgkinson has previously been an annual IBM Champion for each of the past 10 years. He regularly presents at IBM conferences for both IBM employees and customers; actively writes and produces content around IBM products and tools; provides feedback and input to IBM; participates in beta testing; and helps create add-ons and accelerators that promote client adoption of IBM technology. Most recently, Hodgkinson has worked with IBM Cloud Satellite, which enables IBM’s hybrid cloud services anywhere – any cloud, on-premises, and at the edge.
Hodgkinson said, “It’s an honor to be in this exclusive club, and I’m grateful for the recognition it brings to Prolifics. But it’s not just about recognition for focusing on a set of tools and technologies. It is about actually driving results, both in terms of our customers’ success and also in terms of the expert capability within Prolifics around these tools and technology. I want to make sure I live up to this honor and continue to positively affect the IBM community.”
Kirsten Craft, Prolifics Global Head of Business Development & Marketing, said, “Greg truly embodies everything that the Champion program is meant to be – and more. He is very involved in the Champion community; he never hesitates to speak publicly about technology concepts he feels passionate about; and he looks for innovative ways to leverage IBM software across all Prolifics’ offerings. His enthusiasm for innovation and advocacy is in his DNA – it’s not something he does for awards. I admire Greg and am honored to work with him.”
