CircleCI, the leading continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform, today announced that CEO Jim Rose has been recognized by Constellation Research on its 2022 Business Transformation 150, an elite list of executives leading business transformation efforts around the globe.
Digital leaders have been greatly challenged this year by a perfect storm of disruptions due to COVID-19, generational shifts in the workforce, a hypercompetitive new customer experience landscape, and the tireless march of exponential digital change, among other factors. The BT150 nomination process took these influences to heart this year to make sure the list genuinely reflects today’s world and leading trends.
As CEO of CI/CD leader, CircleCI, Rose was recognized for his resilience, relentless focus on customers, and intuitive pulse on evolving needs that meet the growing complexities of software development.
“This is a collective honor for the entire team at CircleCI and further validates our mission to provide best-in-class CI/CD that increases developer productivity and accelerates engineering velocity, confidently and at scale,” said Rose.
Recognition as a BT150 winner has emerged as a differentiator in recruiting as forward-thinking organizations recognize that BT150 winners are some of the most sought after and battle tested executives in the market,” proclaimed R “Ray” Wang, founder and CEO at Constellation Research. “The pandemic created tremendous opportunities for technology and business leaders to kickoff and turbo charge their transformation projects. Many of this year’s BT150 winners have created new business models, launched new offerings, and found their way into the C-suite.”
“In curating the next generation of Business Transformation 150 executives from our network, we emphasized those who are successfully navigating the historic challenges of the last year, while still effectively guiding their organizations to transform and evolve,” said Constellation Research’s VP and Principal Analyst, Dion Hinchcliffe. “I am excited to help them tell their stories to the world over the next year as we share from these leading lights in the digital world the many innovative ways they lifted their organizations up and propelled them into the future. I’m very proud of this year’s highly diverse group of BT150 inductees.”
Nominations from peers, industry influencers, technology vendors and analysts powered the six-month selection process. Each executive on the list demonstrates an understanding of how the business environment is transforming in response to digital and exponential technologies, and these leaders are actively preparing their companies to excel during and after the transformation.
