Award Honors Rosenbluth For Vision, Foresight In Applying Technology In Travel Industry

From developing the travel industry`s leading technology for corporate contract management to being the first travel management company to use technology to address critical issues such as travel security, Rosenbluth International Chairman and CEO Hal Rosenbluth has been a long-time visionary in applying technology to simplify complex processes in the travel industry. 
In recognition of his creativity and foresight, CIO magazine has honored Hal Rosenbluth

with its 20/20 Vision Award in its October issue.  Rosenbluth was the only travel industry executive to receive the award, and was honored alongside such business and technology luminaries as Alfred Chuang of BEA Systems, Bill Gates of Microsoft, Larry Ellison of Oracle and Scott McNealy of Sun Microsystems.

The CIO 20/20 Vision Awards honor outstanding individuals in two categories: 20 creators and marketers of technology; and 20 practitioners who use IT to make great things happen.  Rosenbluth was included among the “20 Who Make It Happen.”

“We`re committed to tireless innovation so we can be as effective as possible on behalf of our clients,” said Rosenbluth.  “This award recognizes the depth of our commitment.”


In giving Rosenbluth the 20/20 Award, CIO cited a number of innovations, including DACODA, Rosenbluth`s highly effective and widely used contract management system for corporations.  CIO also highlighted Rosenbluth`s Web Fare Solution and its Global Security Suite, the first ever suite of interactive global security products offered by a travel management company, designed to address safety and security concerns of corporate travel managers and business travelers worldwide.

“Hal Rosenbluth, CEO of Rosenbluth International, has used technology to simplify the complex interrelationships in the travel business, thereby guiding his company to its current status as a world champion in corporate travel management and forcing rivals to follow in his footsteps,” wrote Mindy Blodgett of CIO magazine.

The 20/20 Award follows Hal Rosenbluth`s receipt of the Marco Polo Award in May 2002, which honored Rosenbluth as an American corporate leader who has helped build stronger Sino-American business relations.
