MicroTech’s President and CEO, Tony Jimenez, was honored yesterday for successfully completing the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) Governance Fellowship, tacking his new title of NACD Governance Fellow to his noteworthy list of achievements.
The Fellowship, according to the NACD, is an educational program “to advance exemplary board leadership - for directors, by directors.” This ‘hands on’ approach allows accomplished professionals, like Jimenez, to juggle workloads while pursuing professional development at the highest levels.
“Continuous improvement has always been a major theme in my life”, remarked Jimenez, “on both a personal and professional basis. And this approach is evident on how we do business at MicroTech—always looking for better ways to provide our clients with innovative technical solutions and services.”
Jimenez’s tireless interest in growing as a leader and contributing to worthwhile causes is evident with his multiple prestigious board memberships. Among others, he is a member of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce National Advisory Council on Minority Business Enterprise, and earlier this year, he was appointed by Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell as a member of the George Mason University Board of Visitors.
His expertise in the IT industry, knowledge of the federal space, military service, and groundbreaking entrepreneurship make him an ideal candidate to share his insights and experience. Because of this, he is frequently selected to participate in forums as a panelist and consultant, like his involvement in the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board in Washington, DC and the National Association of Corporate Directors in New York City.
The NACD Credits and Fellowships Specialist, Lori Whitehand congratulated Jimenez on this accomplishment yesterday morning, thanking him for his “commitment to boardroom excellence.”
