MCC Partner Progressive Computing’s Robert Cioffi Honored with HTG Spirit Award

Commitment to Excellence Recognized by Worldwide Organization of Peers

YONKERS, NY (June 24, 2013) – Each year at its Annual Summit, HTG Peer Groups, a worldwide organization dedicated to helping IT professionals share best practices, recognizes the top participants among its membership. In 2013, Progressive Computing (PCI) Managing Partner Robert Cioffi was honored with The Spirit Award, as an HTG member who displays passion and dedication, goes the extra mile, and represents HTG in a positive manner. Cioffi was chosen by the HTG Advisory Council, based on observation and input from others.

Cioffi joined HTG in 2010 to take his company to the next level through regular quarterly meetings with peers to plan life, leadership and business growth goals, review performance, demand execution, enforce accountability and share best practices.

“My HTG peer group, made up of IT professionals from all over the country, acts as a Board of Directors for PCI, and has been an invaluable resource to me in many ways,” said Cioffi. “Most recently, they helped me navigate the purchase of a competitor and the resulting major expansion in my regional market.”

Out of an international membership of 300, HTG recognized about 50 of members in various categories, including Facilitator of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Excellence in Planning and Execution and Sponsor Engagement, as well as Group Leaders of the Year, among others.

"These award recipients are truly the cream of the crop," said Arlin Sorensen, founder and CEO of HTG Peer Groups. "Their dedication to learning and growth has benefited all of us in more ways than they can imagine. HTG Peer Groups would not be what it is today without the contributions of these outstanding leaders.

As a Microsoft Small Business Specialist, Cioffi has become a sought-after speaker and writer on small business technology topics and an official advisor to Microsoft. In addition, he recently gained the Apple Mobility Competency.
