ATLANTA, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Marie Mouchet, vice president and chief information officer for Southern Company operations and Southern Nuclear, has been named Enterprise CIO of the Year by the Georgia CIO Leadership Association (GCLA).

"My philosophy is that we win with people and that our greatest achievements are gained through collaboration and teamwork, so I share this recognition with those I have the honor of working with at Southern Company," Mouchet said in accepting the award. "I thank the sponsors who make this event possible and the GCLA and their board of directors for their leadership in recognizing the work of IT professionals throughout our state."
