  • The CIO50 report - which features the 50 technology and digital leaders, and those who are ‘ones to watch’ - was launched in breakfast forums this week in Auckland and Wellington. The research is held in conjunction with CIO50 in Australia. Together, the executives in these lists comprise the first batch of CIO100 ANZ leaders.

    The event started with a minute of silence for Atta Elayyan and the other victims of the Christchurch terror attacks on March 15. Elayyan is one of the CIO50 leaders and he was cited for his work as CEO of LWA Solutions. The tribute was led by Victor Yuen, head of product of FaceMe, and a close friend of Elayyan
