Outsell CTO Bryan Harwood Selected as “2016 Titans of Technology” Winner

Outsell announced today that the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal has selected Outsell CTO Bryan Harwood as one of its 2016 Titans of Technology. This is the Journal’s third year presenting these awards, which honor the region’s outstanding technology professionals and their supporters. Winners were featured in the March 4 issue of the magazine.

Honorees were selected by a panel of tech-industry veterans, including some honorees from previous years, and members of the Journal’s editorial team.

Harwood was recognized in the CIO/CTO category, which honors a top IT executive of a public, private or nonprofit company. A four-year veteran of Outsell, Harwood is an innovative technology leader with a depth of experience building out data and transaction processing systems on a massive scale for global enterprises. At Outsell, he leads the Development and Infrastructure team focusing on the development and scaling of the Outsell Fuel Customer Engagement Platform. He also leads Product Management, PMO, IT Operations, Architecture, and Business Intelligence.

“We are extremely proud that Bryan won this honor,” said Mike Wethington, founder and CEO of Outsell. “Under Bryan’s direction and leadership, Outsell continues to evolve its robust customer engagement platform, which is making a big impact on auto dealers and their customers by helping dealers refine and target their marketing campaigns to strengthen customer relationships and drive more revenue.”

“My purpose for joining Outsell’s team was to transform a small company that was doing amazing things into an enterprise doing the same amazing things,” said Harwood. “Scaling up in that manner has meant introducing standard development processes, more cross-team collaboration, more defined methodologies, and improved data management. I’m excited about this Titans of Technology honor – I have the privilege of working with a fantastic team here at Outsell, and that has made the work not only gratifying but also fun.”
