During the 40th annual International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS), leaders from throughout the field of information systems were honored for their continued dedication and service to their profession. Members, educators and volunteers were rewarded for outstanding scientific achievement, service and contribution across many aspects of the field.

 The Leadership Excellence Award was presented to Hasso Plattner, the founder of SAP and a Chairman of the Supervisory Board since May 2003. The Leadership Excellence Award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated exemplary leadership and innovation in the use and development of information systems.

The 2019 LEO award winners were Ritu Agarwal, Michael D. Myers, and Arun Rai.
