Involta leaders receive industry honors

Buie, Moran recognized for leadership, vision, passion

Two members of Involta’s leadership team have received prestigious professional recognition from industry publications.

Involta president and CEO Jim Buie has been named to the Titan 100 List in Colorado, where he is based. Titans are their region’s most accomplished business leaders, demonstrating exceptional leadership, vision and passion.

And Michelle Moran, Involta’s senior vice president of sales, product and marketing, was recently named among the Top 25 Women in Technology by Mission Critical Magazine.

The Titan 100 program recognizes Colorado’s top 100 CEOs & C-level executives. Collectively, the 2023 Colorado Titan 100 and their companies employ upwards of 50,000 individuals and generate over $37 billion in annual revenues.

This year’s honorees will be published in a limited-edition Titan 100 book and profiled exclusively online. They will be honored at an awards ceremony June 1 and will be given the opportunity to interact and connect multiple times throughout the year with their fellow Titans.

Widely regarded as one of the most rapidly growing and influential communities of executives nationwide, nominees for the Titan 100 must undergo a rigorous selection process, culminating in the ultimate recognition of being inducted into the distinguished Titan 100 Hall of Fame after three years as a Titan.

We proudly recognize the Titan 100 for their efforts to shape the future of the Colorado business community. Their achievements create a profound impact that makes an extraordinary difference for their clients and employees across the nation.”
