The ITLG Silicon Valley Global Awards recognise and celebrate Irish and Irish-American technology leaders who are working at the highest levels in their industries and making an impact by advancing technology. Fifty executives were honoured at the high-profile ceremony, which took place in California’s Stanford University on March 30th.
