This is a key element to our company’s success.”

Selected by an independent committee, EMA recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of Washington’s management all-stars — the CFOs, CIOs/CTOs, COOs, CHROs, and other C-suite executives leading the region’s business community. The 2016 EMA winners collectively generate more than $4.3 billion in annual revenue.  This year’s winners will be recognized in the March/April issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on March 1, 2016 at the National Press Club.

“Any great CEO knows that to build a truly successful business they must build a high performing team of executives around them. This year’s EMA winners are perfect examples of all-star executives. Not only do they inspire their own teams to achieve greater heights, they also believe deeply in their companies’ missions, are consummate community stewards, and are dedicated to excellence, always,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events.  “We’re honored to share their stories as we celebrate their great accomplishments.”

Hanumanula has more than 18 years of high-tech engineering experience in enterprise business applications and software development strategies.  He brings extensive system design and implementation skills gained from designing, developing and commissioning case management systems critical to business success for a variety of industries across government and commercial channels. As CTO, Hanumanula is responsible for guiding the technical vision and direction for AINS, as well as promoting continuous product innovation.  Hanumanula holds a master’s degree in Computer Applications, and has been previously recognized for his innovation and thought leadership.
