CIO50 nominations extended

Paul Brislen, Editor. 27 November 2019, 7:59 am

Nominations for the second annual CIO50 list have been extended to December 16.

The awards, set up to honour and recognise leadership in the ICT sector, cover both individuals and community-based projects, says CIO editor Divina Paredes.

The CIO50 itself showcases business innovation and leadership and calls for nominees who can share the most important lessons they have learned throughout their careers as well as those who demonstrate technical prowess and the all-important leadership needed to manage and grow a successful team.

The second category recognises the organisation that has developed "a technology-enabled initiative that helped address a community or social issue" and last year included the Eat My Lunch project, Thankyou Payroll  and the winner, Zeal, an online crisis intervention programme aimed at at-risk youth.

The judging panel includes a mix of local and international IT stalwarts including Ron Hooton, formerly of Countrywide Bank, the New Zealand Defence Force and now CEO of Vision Australia, Steven Mayo-Smith, formerly CIO at Livestock Improvement, Yellow, Radius Health and the Auckland District Health Board, Kirsten Patterson, chief executive of the Institute of Directors, Magriet Roos, senior executive partner with Gartner, and a number of others.

Last year's CIO50 leaders included Kevin Drinkwater from Mainfreight, Sarah Ellisdon from Counties Power and Cobus Nel from Transpower.
