Constellation Research has recognized Dale Denham, MAS+, senior vice president and chief information officer of Lewiston, Maine, headquartered distributor Geiger (PPAI 105182, D12) in its 2021 Business Transformation 150, an elite list of executives leading business transformation efforts around the globe.
Digital leaders have been greatly challenged this year by disruptions due to COVID-19, generational shifts in the workforce, a hypercompetitive new customer experience landscape and the relentless march of exponential digital change, among other factors.

Previously named one of Computerworld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders for his innovative solutions, Denham says, “Having a great team is as critical to success as selecting the right technology. I’m proud that we have focused on smart long-term investments that have driven significant results such as Geiger’s exclusive PopUP Stores.”
Jo-an Lantz, MAS, Geiger president and CEO, adds, “Dale has been an excellent colleague and business leader for the organization. I’m glad to see him recognized yet again from outside our industry. His team continues to deliver significant value to our sales force, overall organization and our industry.”
R “Ray” Wang, founder and CEO at Constellation Research, says, “Dale’s hard work to build new business models, accelerate organizational change, and apply new technologies has paid off in the post-pandemic environment. Moreover, his drive to improve the world and mentor the next generation sets him apart."
Business Transformation 150 nominations come from peers, industry influencers, technology vendors, and analysts powered the selection process. Each executive is selected for demonstrating an understanding of how the business environment is transforming in response to digital and exponential technologies, and help their companies excel during and after the transformation.
“Digital leaders are currently grappling with much more change than in the past, and this year's BT150 are perhaps the most multifaceted inductees yet," says Dion Hinchcliffe, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research. "The BT150 members boast a diverse set of business, technology, and people skills to drive breakthrough innovation at their organizations and in the industry."
