Calling all innovators: Enter the IT Leaders 100 2024

The IT Leaders 100 recognises the most influential and inspiring individuals shaping the UK's IT landscape.

IT faces a host of challenges and opportunities in 2024. From ransomware and cloud optimisations, to AI and green tech, the industry has never been a more exciting place to work.

The IT Leaders 100 celebrates the people taking advantage of that vibrancy: the trend-setters and change-makers shaping the sector.

Having spoken to hundreds of IT leaders over the last 12 months and beyond, we're putting in the work to produce the definitive list of the top 100 IT leaders in the UK. Whether you're a CIO, CTO, CISO, IT director, chief architect or any one of dozens of other titles, this is your chance to enter - or nominate another IT leader.

Simply open the submission form, or use the form below, and fill in your or your nominee's details for consideration in the 2024 edition of the IT Leaders 100.

Lesley Salmon, global CIO at Kellanova who was featured on the list last year, said, "If you want to learn something new from someone with great IT experience, then use the IT Leaders 100 to your advantage. Connect, collaborate, and see what opportunities you can create together or what challenges you can overcome with mentorship and guidance from great leaders in this industry.

"Top Tip - if you do connect with someone on LinkedIn, make sure you add a cover note, introducing yourself and how you know them!"

Everyone who reaches the final 100 will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 voucher, as a congratulations for being an leading figure in the UK IT market.

Enter now

We take into account factors like duration in role, level of transformation and major IT achievements when considering entries for the IT Leaders 100.

We also ask a selection of light-hearted questions to get a sense of the person behind the title: from 'How did you get into IT?' to 'What's your secret talent?' We can't wait to see what you've got in store for us this year.

Once we've shortlisted the entries, we work with industry experts on the incredibly challenging task of producing the final list - our assessment of the most influential figures in UK IT today.

Each entrant should only submit themselves once - multiple entries will not increase your chance of being on the final list.

Submissions are open until Friday 26th April, and we'll publish the full list of the top 100 IT leaders later this year.

Use the form below to enter, or go directly to this link.
