Devbridge Leader Named CEO of the Year in Lithuania

Devbridge CEO Viktoras Gurgždys is capping off a busy year with a prestigious award that recognizes his accomplishments in the executive office.

Verslo Žinios – the only business newspaper in Lithuania – recently named Gurgždys as its 2022 CEO of the Year. The annual award is given in recognition of the Lithuanian leader who creates the most value for employees, shareholders, and society during the prior year.

Acquired in late 2021 by Cognizant, Devbridge operates within Cognizant Softvision, the organization’s integrated digital engineering practice. In 2022, Devbridge merged its software product engineering and service capabilities with Cognizant and opened new offices in Warsaw, Poland and Vilnius, Lithuania, significantly expanding its footprint and reach. Devbridge also announced several major client acquisitions in 2022 and was named Lithuania’s most desirable employer.

“The work that our multidisciplinary teams at Devbridge have accomplished together, and in partnership with the powerhouse of Cognizant’s global ecosystem, set the tone for an exceptional year of innovation for our clients across North America and Western Europe.  We not only focused on software development, but also on the creation of business results and real-world impact, which in turn attracted top talent and accolades like this award. I see the CEO of the Year award as a testament not to my efforts, but instead to the market-shaking work launched by the entire Devbridge team, with tireless support from the global workforce at Cognizant,” Gurgždys said.
