Recognized for Excellence in the Computing Profession
Washington, DC, November 30, 2011: TCG’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Robert Buccigrossi, has been awarded the Senior Member Grade by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society with over 92,000 members, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession.
As part of its recognition of excellence, ACM honors those whose contributions to the computing field have helped make the world better in countless ways. The Senior Member Grade recognizes those ACM members with at least 10 years of professional experience and 5 years of continuous Professional Membership who have demonstrated performance that sets them apart from their peers. This year, 141 ACM members were awarded Senior Membership.
Dr. Buccigrossi (affectionately known as “Butch”) has been an integral member of TCG since the company’s founding in 1994, and since that time has helped lead the company to success by spearheading and implementing numerous technology-related initiatives internally for TCG and for the company’s clients.
“I can’t think of anyone more worthy of this honor than Butch,” said TCG president Dan Turner. “He has been instrumental in coming up with ways to use technology to help us save costs—both internally and for our customers—and in helping us to streamline procedures and processes so that both we and our customers can save time. Without Butch, TCG would not be where it is today.”
