Dale Fehringer honored with industry award

Competitive Intelligence Society honors professional accomplishments

Alexandria, Va., May 1, 2007 –The Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP) is honoring individuals for their contributions to the profession and the organization.

Dale Fehringer is one of two recipients of SCIP’s Fellow Award for 2007, which recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the competitive intelligence (CI) profession. They join an elite group of professionals who work on behalf of the field of CI. They can be described as learned individuals who are continually in pursuit of knowledge.

Fehringer, who lives in San Francisco, started and managed a competitive intelligence program for Visa International in 1996. He retired from Visa in 2003 as vice president of market intelligence, and currently works as a freelance writer and editor. His articles on people, places, and contemporary culture have appeared in a variety of magazines and newspapers, and he is a regular columnist for Competitive Intelligence Magazine.

Fehringer co-edited the first publication of the CI Foundation, Competitive Intelligence Ethics: Navigating the Gray Zone and served as primary author of the benchmark report in 2005, “State of the Art: Competitive Intelligence.” He is considered a “go-to guy” in the field of competitive intelligence, viewed by his peers as an experienced, senior CI professional, who is willing to share best practices, as evidenced by his frequent speaking engagements, published writing, and volunteer service.

“These are all great examples of the tangible, meaningful contributions Dale has made to the society and the profession,” says Alexander T. Graham, SCIP’s executive director.

“Acknowledging these top professionals is a way for our society to pay tribute to them for serving and contributing to our mission,” adds Graham. “The field as a whole is honoring their outstanding work and achievement. And by telling their stories, the society can educate others about the CI field and what it takes to be a true professional. Congratulations to Dale for this esteemed honor.”
Fehringer and other award recipients were honored during a special presentation today at SCIP’s annual conference in New York City.
