KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee Valley Authority Chief Information Officer Dan Traynor has been named to Computerworld magazine's annual list of 100 top corporate leaders in Information Technology.

The magazine's Premier 100 awards program spotlights leaders from both the technology and business sides of companies for their exceptional technology leadership, innovative solutions to business challenges and effective management of IT strategies.

Honorees will be recognized at the March 11-13 Premier 100 IT Leaders Conference in Phoenix, Ariz., as well as in the Feb. 27, 2012, issue of Computerworld and on

"The Premier 100 awards program shines a well-deserved spotlight on a stellar group of IT executives," says Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "In today's business climate, IT executives must act quickly to recognize opportunities and create competitive advantage within their organizations.

"These 100 men and women have demonstrated an ability to make those clear-sighted decisions that help their IT organizations innovate and deliver business value. Whatever comes their way in 2012, these IT leaders have the skills, the savvy and the judgment to meet the challenge. We're pleased to recognize their leadership and honor their achievements."

Traynor became TVA's vice president and chief information officer in April 2010. He is responsible for leveraging technology and setting strategies for the corporation's information resources. He reports directly to TVA President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Kilgore.

Traynor came to TVA from Southern Company. His 32-year career with Southern included assignments in three major business units power generation, division operations and information technology and at three subsidiaries: Alabama Power, Georgia Power and Southern Company Services.
