FRAMINGHAM (02/26/2004) - The editors of Blackmoney.com and US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine named Martin Davis, corporate CIO of Wachovia Corp., one of the top 50 most important African-Americans in technology for 2004. Davis joined the Charlotte, N.C.-based financial services company in 1985. He graduated from Winston-Salem State University in Winston-Salem, N.C. He is also a graduate of the Young Executives Institute and the Executive Leadership Program, both at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Davis appeared in the November 1, 2003 issue of CIO in the article, How To Find, Fix or Fire Your Under-performers.
Honorees were chosen for this annual list based on their work in making technology part of global society. During the year the list is publicized, the magazine will present the selected leaders as role models to young people, and their accomplishments will be upheld as examples of the significant contributions made on a daily basis by the half-million African Americans in high-tech jobs.
