Congrats to DISH CIO John Swieringa for 40 under 40 honor

Big shout out to our CIO John Swieringa. Last week, the Denver Business Journal recognized him as a 2015 40 under 40 winner. The annual list honors metro Denver’s most outstanding leaders under age 40.

As one of the youngest Fortune 250 CIOs, John oversees the largest corporate IT organization in Colorado and supports DISH operations nationwide.

John leads an award-winning team of IT experts, empowering his team to innovate, solve problems and take an active role in shaping the company culture.

John’s path to success has been anything but conventional. He spent more than a decade in various finance roles across multiple industries, including several years with DISH’s Corporate Finance team. Four years ago, he switched gears to join the IT team leading DISH’s software development.

John’s unorthodox career path and his willingness to jump into the opportunities presented have led to his quick rise to the C-suite.

Check out John’s Denver Business Journal 40 under 40 profile for more insights and his recipe for success.
