Phyllis J. Koch, 2010 Honoree

Director, IT services and geographical information systems
City of Boynton Beach
Boynton Beach,, Fla.
Most valuable career advice:
"You cannot be right all the time, but make a decision. Do something!"
Favorite vice:
"Traveling to fascinating locations (such as South Africa or The Falkland Islands) to take photos, shop and eat great food."
If I were not in this business, I would probably be...
"a vet or a zoo director, to work with animals."
Passion outside of work:
"Photography, especially wildlife."
In high school, I was...
"very quiet. Obviously, I outgrew it."
Technology pet peeve:
"Solutions in search of a problem. Concentrating on the technology, rather than starting from the business need"
What's the most interesting thing people don't know about you?
"I volunteered at a rescue site, so now I am licensed by the state to work with exotic animals up to the size of cougars."
