DENVER, CO, May 22, 2018 – Vistage, the world’s leading CEO peer-advisory organization, today announced that James Logan is the recipient of the Leadership Award. The Vistage Leadership Award honors members for their achievement in leadership.

James Logan, award winner for Leadership, is CEO of OneRain (onerain.com) and High Sierra Electronics (HSE, hsierra.com), providers of software, instrumentation, and systems integration to the Water Resource Management, Flood Warning, Post-Wildfire Mitigation, and Road Weather industries. Through OneRain’s and HSE’s impactful work, federal, state, and local U.S. government agencies are able to safeguard the public from extreme rainfall, flood risks, dam failures, post-fire debris flows, and hazardous weather driving conditions. For example, in a matter of months after the recent Sonoma County Tubbs and Nuns deadly wildfires in California, OneRain and HSE facilitated the successful installation of a county-wide flood warning system.
Mr. Logan has been a member of Vistage since 2007. With the continued growth of OneRain and following the acquisition of High Sierra Electronics in 2016, James enrolled his next-level management team in Vistage. Today, the OneRain/HSE team has six members in Vistage. More recently, James is leading the newly-created Advanced Environmental Monitoring Holdings (AE Monitoring, aemonitoring.com) group with OneRain and HSE as its foundation companies.

After learning of the award, James Logan said, “I am honored to receive this Leadership award. Vistage has given our next-generation leadership a common communication language which has been instrumental in helping us build a strong team and successful businesses that serve our core mission.”
