Falls Church, VA, March 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Each year SCIP recognizes three exceptional individuals for their professional achievements and promotion of the competitive intelligence profession and the SCIP society. For 2013 a volunteer committee reviewed the submissions of all individuals nominated by their peers for the SCIP Fellows Award, and selected Erik Glitman as one of this year’s recipients. Erik will be honored for his contribution to the profession at the 28th Annual Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals International Conference, May 6-9 in Orlando Florida.
“I am honored to receive the Fellows Award from SCIP,” said Mr. Glitman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Fletcher/CSI. “Since I became active in competitive intelligence in 1986, I have seen SCIP and the practice of CI go through many changes and develop increasing levels of sophistication. I look forward to being an active part of the continued evolution of SCIP and the CI industry in the coming years.
“Competitive intelligence is about more than just understanding competitors. It is about how companies develop strategy and tactics in constantly changing markets. As companies become more attuned to CI, they will integrate competitive awareness into more decisions. SCIP is equally affected by the changes in the industry and the next years will be an exciting time to be in SCIP and CI. I look forward to working with the other Fellows, helping the profession adapt to meet these changes.”
Mr. Glitman will receive his 2013 Fellows Award at the SCIP International Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Fl. “One of the best places to see how CI has evolved, and to learn more about how companies integrate CI into operations, is at the SCIP Annual conference,” he added. “The conference is a great event and presents CI professionals, and those who are interested in learning more about CI, with a great opportunity to interact with their peers and share knowledge. I applaud the work of the annual SCIP conference committee and all the presenters for their hard work and a successful event.”
