The SmartCXO Awards celebrate the distinguished achievements of forty of Greater Philadelphia's finest management executives, and recognize the achievements of Greater Philadelphia's management all-stars: the Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers and Executive Management Teams that power the region's economy and workforce. The group of winners is recognized for their creative management visions, leadership philosophies, innovative strategizing and undeniable work ethic. As a whole, the companies represented in the 2011 Philadelphia SmartCXO Awards generate $5 billion in revenue and manage 30,000 employees in the Greater Philadelphia area. The 2011 SmartCXOs were profiled in the April 2011 issue of Philadelphia SmartCEO.

"Each SmartCXO winner undoubtedly represents the best of what Greater Philadelphia has to offer: an extraordinary work ethic, passionate leadership and success-driven management strategy," said Jaime Nespor-Park, group publisher of Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine. "We are privileged to share in their success, and are honored to recognize Jack Henneman of Integra as one of the top CFOs in Greater Philadelphia."

Mr. Henneman began his tenure with Integra in 1998, as its general counsel and chief administrative officer. "Jack has contributed to Integra's success in numerous ways and has been instrumental in helping to build our company," said Stuart Essig, Integra's CEO. "When Jack joined Integra, we had $15 million in revenues and 130 employees. During his tenure, Integra's revenues have grown substantially and we now have over 3,000 employees working in 15 countries. It's been a great privilege to work with Jack. I'm very pleased that Jack has been recognized for his extensive accomplishments."
