Alumnus and Facebook Chief Information Officer Tim Campos, BCEMBA 11, received a Lifetime Achievement Award Thursday at the Bay Area CIO Awards sponsored by the Silicon Valley Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times.
Campos was one of two CIOs to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and among 17 top CIOs in the Bay Area recognized at the dinner.
The job of CIO is "a hell of a lot more fun," Campos told the Silicon Valley Business Journal in a June 7 article that noted the dramatic evolution of CIO's responsibilities in recent years.
Campos has been leading IT strategies at Facebook since 2010. He joined the social media giant after becoming the youngest chief information officer of any Fortune 500 company in his mid-30s, at KLA-Tencor, a leading supplier of semiconductor equipment and services. Before that he worked at Sybase and Silicon Graphics.
