Kevin Ray wins 2024 CIO ORBIE® Award for Alabama


We are pleased to announce that Kevin Ray, Director of IT for O’Neal Industries (ONI), is this year’s Alabama CIO ORBIE® Award winner in the global company category.

The CIO ORBIE® Awards recognized technology executives for leadership, innovation, and excellence in this rapidly growing, CIO-led national professional association. The Alabama CIO ORBIE® Awards is the premier technology executive recognition program in Alabama, honoring chief information officers who have demonstrated excellence in technology leadership. Winners are selected by an independent peer review process, led by prior ORBIE recipients, based upon leadership and management effectiveness, business value created by technology innovation, and engagement in industry and community endeavors.

Kevin led the implementation of a Cybersecurity Governance Program for all ONI companies in a collaborative way. This program has significantly improved the security posture of all ONI companies by using a risk-based approach to prioritize investments.

“This approach ensures that we invest in the right areas in the future to make us more secure and will lead to future business opportunities as cybersecurity requirements increase in our supply chain,” says Kevin.

Congratulations, Kevin!
