today announced that Kamel Shaath has won the IDG's InfoWorld Technology
Leadership Award as the sole winner in the Business Leadership category.
Chief technology officers are often the unsung heroes of IT. They may
drive new technology development for customer-facing and/or internal use.
They may manage and improve the core technology that underpins the
business operations. In any case, they translate the promise of
technology into business benefit. Each year, the InfoWorld Technology
Leadership Awards honor senior IT executives who have demonstrated
leadership within their companies and in the IT community.   -œTechnology
leadership is more important than ever, given the strong pressures on all
organizations due to the recent recession to figure out how to grow again
with fewer resources. But leadership is not just about making the best in
tough times, but of seeing what others do not and acting on that vision.
With several technology trends coalescing into a fundamental
consumerization that changes not only the technology mix but also user
expectations as to their role in technology, the landscape in which
technology leadership has changed. It's no longer the province of senior
IT leaders, though the cut-above thinkers among them remain in the best
position to lead. InfoWorld's first 10 Technology Leadership Awards
winners show that essential combination of creativity, vision,
management, and political savvy that are necessary to stand out from
their peers in helping their businesses grow, in rearchitecting their IT
strategies, in deploying critical technologies, and in innovation
technologies themselves. We salute these leaders, and hope they inspire
many others as well,-• said Galen Gruman, Executive Editor/News and
Features, InfoWorld. Inspired by his vision for corporate, environmental
and social responsibility, Kamel Shaath played a key role in the creation
of KOM's Junk-A-Juke Upgrade Program. -œThis effort was about business
leadership beyond the confines of the IT role, and Shaath found a way to
leverage his business operations to help clients by reducing disposal
costs, stand out from competitors, and help a charity hurt by the recent
recession by converting discards into donations,-• reported Gruman.
-œI am honored to be recognized with this award,-• said Kamel Shaath,
CTO, KOM Networks. -œThis is a great recognition from InfoWorld, a
prestigious publication, for the efforts and commitment that our KOM
family has undertaken with this program. We draw inspiration from our
surroundings and especially our customers. Recognizing that innovation is

lock-down, this program has allowed us to share in our own good fortunes

customers while paving the road for others to pay-it-forward. We have
seized an opportunity to leverage obsolete storage devices that customers

the plight of hungry children.-•   About KOM Networks   KOM Networks is a
