ANN ARBOR, MI -- Mike Cyros, chief commercial officer, Allied Vision Technologies(AIA), was presented with the 2014 AIA Achievement Award at AIA’s 22nd Annual Business Conference in Orlando, FL, USA. This award is the vision and imaging industry’s top leadership award.

Cyros was nominated by AIA members and was selected from a highly qualified pool of candidates by the AIA Board of Directors.

“Mike Cyros embodies what the Achievement Award is all about,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of AIA. “In addition to helping the companies he worked for grow into industry leaders, he devoted time to helping the vision industry as a whole by volunteering to his industry association. I have no doubt that his selection for this award will be cheered by his peers throughout the world, whose respect he has gained for his efforts over the last 25 years.”

In accepting the award, Cyros said: “winning the AIA Achievement Award came as a total shock to me, something I never expected. I am deeply honored to be recognized, as the award states, for leadership and outstanding contributions in promoting market acceptance and growth of our industry. I am further humbled to join those who have won the award in previous years, and see this as a challenge to drive even further in the coming years those attributes recognized by such a prestigious award”.

The annual award, sponsored by the AIA, has been given since 1991 and honors one industry leader for outstanding contributions in promoting market acceptance of industrial and/or scientific imaging. The award is presented each year at the AIA’s Business Conference, a members-only event that brings key industry executives together for networking, important machine vision business discussions and presentations that explore emerging markets and new technologies.

The results of the election of the new Board of Directors of the AIA were also announced at the conference. Cyros retired from the board after more than a decade of dedicated service to AIA, including one term as Chair.
