The Chattanooga Technology Council is having an auction to benefit STEM School and Innovation HUB. Nine local chief information officers from high profile companies have agreed to sell their time to the highest bidder.

“The CIO Auction is a new event that the Tech Council hopes will provide much needed funds for the Council to bring additional high quality programs to Chattanooga and benefit the STEM School and Innovation HUB,” said Ms. Jackson.  “No organization in town has, to my knowledge, done this type of event so we are both excited and anxious about how it will turn out.”

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to bid on the following CIO’s: Nick Coussoule - Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee (BCBST) Mark Keil - City of Chattanooga David Johnson - Electric Power Board (EPB) Laurene Vamprine - Erlanger Kristi Montgomery - Kenco Management Services Partha Mukherjee - Krystal Company Terry Leonard - Life Care Centers of America (LCCA) Sydney Crisp - UNUM Thomas Hoover - The University of Tennessee Chattanooga (UTC).
