CIO50 2019

CIO50: New Zealand’s most innovative CIOs

Welcome to the annual CIO50 list where CIO New Zealand recognises the top 50 senior technology executives who are driving innovation and influencing rapid change across their organisations.

This is the first year we are holding CIO50 in New Zealand. The research is held in conjunction with CIO50 in Australia. Together, the executives in these lists will comprise the first batch of CIO100 ANZ leaders.

With nominations running from 24 September, 2018 until 17 December 2018, the list will recognise and applaud the leaders who are rolling out innovative technology-driven projects that have transformed the way their businesses operate.

Nomination questions give entrants an opportunity to showcase their achievements in two areas:

Business Innovation and Leadership.

CIO New Zealand has assembled a panel of industry leaders – former CIOs from government, industry and academia, current CEOs at big name organisations, and leading IT industry analysts – to judge this year’s list.

CIO New Zealand recognises that filling out the nomination form can be time-consuming for entrants. With this in mind, we have reduced the number of questions nominators and their nominees are required to answer this year. Please note that entrants are also always welcome to self-nominate.

We look forward to receiving and judging each entry and unveiling this powerful list of technology and digital leaders in March 2019.

We wish everyone the best of luck.
