The HT Group Announces Executive Advisor of the Year Patti Boyle

AUSTIN, Texas, January 15, 2020  – The HT Group has awarded Patti Boyle its 2020 Executive Advisor of the Year for her work in helping local businesses navigate one of the most tumultuous years in recent history. The award is given to honor executive advisors who exhibit outstanding leadership and strategic value to The HT Group and its clients.

Boyle uses her extensive background in training to help CEOs and sales and marketing executives find their footing and their forward momentum through the pandemic. Her training career began at the University of Houston, where she served as the Associate Director for the Center for Applied Technology.  She then envisioned and launched Career Visions, Inc., a Human Capital Firm specializing in organizational and career change, which grew to 31 offices nationwide in three years and earned recognition as the second-fastest growing privately held company in Houston. 

She is available as an advisor to Austin business leaders through The HT Group’s Advisory Services, which offers technical, operational, and financial strategic guidance to CxOs and other business executives.

The HT Group awarded its first Executive Advisor of the Year award to Russ Finney in 2019. Finney is a lecturer in the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas in Austin teaching technology & business strategy and the director of the various MIS undergraduate programs at UT Austin. He’s a former VP of IT in the semiconductor industry and CIO in both the aerospace and financial services industries. Finney led The HT Group’s Executive Business & Technology Strategic Thinking Series in 2019.

“Patti and Russ are shining examples of the caliber and diversity of The HT Group’s Executive Advisor Team,” says The HT Group President Chad Macy. “Russ was instrumental in helping to strengthen our advisory services in 2019—particularly in the areas of digital transformation and strategy. Then when the pandemic hit, we didn’t retreat. We knew our advisory services were needed more than ever, so we grew the team to more than 30 C-level advisors in every business area from HR and operations to finance, technology, sales and marketing, supply chain and business continuity. Patti has been a valued part of the team, which has helped numerous businesses tackle the unexpected obstacles the past year as thrown them.”
