Ascensus IT Leaders Tami Evanson, Ravi Vedala Receive 2019 Ones to Watch Awards from IDG

Issued by: Ascensus

Date: Jan. 23, 2019

Honorees Recognized for Exceptional Contributions to Firm's Continued Innovation and Key Initiatives

Dresher, PA, January 22, 2019 -- Ascensus -- whose technology and expertise helps millions of people save for retirement, education, and healthcare -- is pleased to announce that Tami Evanson, senior vice president of IT, and Ravi Vedala, director of IT applications and engineering, have been named honorees of the 2019 Ones to Watch Award from IDG, the publisher of CIO Magazine, Computerworld, and Infoworld. This prestigious award spotlights rising technology leaders who have what it takes to become the strategic, C-level business technology executives of tomorrow.

Tami Evanson has worked in Ascensus' IT organization for over 15 years and has contributed to many of the technology initiatives that have propelled the firm's business forward. In her previous role, she helped Ascensus transition to a DevOps methodology, defining and executing the firm's software development culture and toolsets. Most recently, Tami has spearheaded M&A due diligence and IT roadmap development. To date, she has successfully integrated 20+ acquisitions into Ascensus' technology ecosystem.

"Tami approaches every situation looking for win-win outcomes and leverages her knowledge and expertise to find solutions with maximum benefit to all involved. This strength made her uniquely qualified to lead our M&A technology and integration efforts," states John Schroeder, Ascensus' chief information officer. "People who work with Tami know that she genuinely cares about them, which helps her establish a strong connection and sense of mutual respect."

Over his ten-year career at Ascensus, Ravi Vedala has led the development of technology for the firm's government savings division, working with government partners to build and support websites servicing millions of residents. Most recently, Ravi played an integral role on a high-performing team that was tasked with building a purpose-built technology platform for state-facilitated retirement programs. Today, Ascensus is at the forefront of this technology, supporting dedicated employer and employee websites for participants in existing state programs.

"Ravi brings the perfect balance of expertise, humility, and open-mindedness," says Schroeder. "His work ethic is truly contagious and motivates his team to do whatever it takes to get the job done. We're grateful for his continued leadership and his dedication to helping Ascensus and its technology enter an entirely new market in such an impactful way."

"As CIOs become more involved in corporate-wide decisions and objectives, reliance on qualified and talented people within their IT organizations to manage key projects is critical to overall business success," notes Tim Scannell, director of strategic content at the CIO Executive Council. "The Ones to Watch Awards are an effective way to acknowledge the success of those individuals who have the right mix of technology and management skills to maintain continuity, drive innovation, and lead solutions teams."

Evanson and Vedala will accept their awards at the IDG AGENDA19 Conference held March 18-20, 2019
