CIO50: New Zealand’s top 50 tech leaders

The 2022 CIO50 New Zealand will celebrate the achievements of the top 50 senior technology and digital executives in Aotearoa who are driving innovations, building great cultures, and influencing leadership teams across their organisations.

This year, the top 50 will be judged based on responses provided by entrants under two pillars: Innovation and Influence.

For two-and-a-half-years, CIOs and their teams have delivered new hybrid work environments for their organisations. In many sectors such as healthcare and education, senior technology executives have more power and influence than they ever have, largely due to their performances during the pandemic.

In 2022, we are also introducing five Best Project awards that highlight the achievements of technology teams in the following sectors: Financial Services, Healthcare, Government, Not-For-Profit, and Primary Industries.

Also in 2022, we present our first Next CIO award, recognising rising stars in our industry who are on the pathway to senior leadership.

Nominations will be reviewed and marked by our CIO50 judging panel who will rate each section of the questionnaire to determine the final list.

Your responses will also form the basis of written profiles of our top 50 list, which will be revealed at an exclusive dinner in Auckland in November.
