Gwinnett Tech Board Members in the Spotlight
Lucia, Mouchet on the Boards for Gwinnett Tech Receive Recognition for Leadership
Two members of Gwinnett Tech's college and advisory boards have been recognized for their achievements and leadership roles.
Gwinnett Tech board member Marian Lucia will be inducted into the YWCA Academy of Women Achievers later this month. Lucia is executive vice president and chief information officer of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta. She also serves on the advisory board of the Information Management Forum and chairs the board for the Georgia CIO Leadership Association.
For the past 23 years, the YWCA has recognized Atlanta's premier female role models through the Academy of Women Achievers, which is the first major program to formally acknowledge the professional and civic accomplishments of Atlanta's women. Each year the honorees are nominated by their peers into the Academy and celebrated at the annual Salute to Women of Achievement Luncheon. Lucia joins other recognized Women of Achievement, including Jane Fonda, Coretta Scott King, Mayor Shirley Franklin, Monica Kaufman, Gladys Knight and Rosalynn Carter.
Marie Mouchet, a member of the Gwinnett Tech CIS Advisory Board, received the 2007 Woman of the Year in Technology award from the Women in Technology organization. Mouchet is vice president and chief information officer of Southern Company Generation, Southern Nuclear and Southern Power.
The Women in Technology organization award recognizes women in technology or scientific leadership positions within technology or non-technology organizations, and women holding business leadership positions in technology.
Mouchet received the top award for the enterprise business category. Winners in this category are employed by companies or organizations in Georgia that have more than 1,000 employees and have budgetary responsibility within their organization.
Mouchet, who joined Southern Company in 1982, has held various positions within the company including roles in regulatory, financial services, public relations, marketing, sales and generation.
