Alex Motsenigos, the Wellesley cyclist who was fatally struck by a vehicle last August on Weston Road, is being honored through a new annual employee award at IDC, the Framingham-based IT market intelligence company where he worked for 12 years.
According to IDC President and CEO Kirk Campbell, the company’s management announced creation of the Alexander Motsenigos Award for Outstanding Innovation back in August, and this week named the first winner, HPC Program VP Earl Joseph.
During the presentation of the award, Campbell said: “We believe that this new Innovation award is one excellent way to honor Alex’s memory and accomplishments. During his 12 years at IDC as the Program Vice President for Global Services Markets & Trends, Alex had the passion and perseverance to launch an entirely new business at IDC, the Services Contracts Database, which he built into a global business and became the industry standard. Alex also will be remembered for his intellectual curiosity and passion for high quality research work at IDC as well as a great customer service attitude. He was a very talented researcher and wonderful person to work with who was always willing to cheerfully help his colleagues. This special new award for outstanding innovation at IDC will ensure that Alex is remembered and honored for many years to come by the many IDC employees who knew Alex as well as those who are yet to join our company.”
Several members of the Motsenigos family attended the ceremony. What’s more, IDC christened the Alexander Motsenigos Conference Room, a place where Motsenigos was often seen meeting with clients and colleagues. A dedication plaque is located in the room as well.
