Announcing the Winter 2023 Savilla Pitt Fellowship Recipient: Nannette Cutliff

We are delighted to announce that Nannette Cutliff has been selected as the Savilla Pitt Memorial Fellow for the Winter 2023 Tech Executive Leadership Initiative (TELI) class. The prestigious Savilla Pitt Memorial Fellowship, presented by Aspen Digital and the Aspen Tech Policy Hub, is awarded to an outstanding member of each Hub cohort who exemplifies the selflessness and generosity of our late colleague, Savilla Pitt.

Nannette’s exceptional generosity, unwavering dedication, and hard work perfectly mirror the qualities that Savilla Pitt herself exemplified. According to her TELI peers, Nannette always went above and beyond to extend kindness to everyone, ensuring that each fellow felt valued, heard, and acknowledged. As a positive and collaborative team member, Nannette was always the first to offer assistance to her peers.

Nannette’s background is in cybersecurity governance, technology optimization, regulatory compliance, and strategic direction in the design and delivery of technology solutions. She has worked for 20+ years at Pacific Service and is a strong advocate of access equity and educational parity for the underserved.

This award honors Savilla Pitt, the first Aspen Tech Policy Hub employee and a core Aspen Digital team member who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2021. Savilla was instrumental to the launch of the Hub program. More importantly, she was a dear friend.

Once again, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Nannette Cutliff for this well-deserved recognition! Read here to learn more about the Savilla Pitt Memorial Fellowship and past Memorial Fellows.
