The Global CIO 100 2023: Nominations Open

CIO 100 2023 CIO 100 2023

Nominate your innovative CIO and help spotlight and celebrate exceptional talent and leadership. Scroll down for the nomination form.

The Global CIO 100 2023, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, is the HotTopics’ business leaders community’s annual opportunity to celebrate and showcase innovation and leadership. Nominations are now open for our communities of leaders, executives and wider audiences to nominate your CIO, CTO, or similar, so they have the opportunity to be recognized for their efforts in bringing business acumen, technical excellence and sound leadership to their teams and organisations.

In the meantime, we will shortly be announcing this list’s official Judges. These will be members of the technology and business community, from around the world. They will have themselves proved to be CIO 100 executives and thought leaders, and therefore well placed to make the final decision of the final 100. HotTopics, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and our Judges are committed to building a diverse and inclusive Global CIO 100 list, and will be proud to present a gender equal list, as we have done in our past awards.

The Global CIO 100 2023 will be revealed early next year, exclusively on HotTopics. Please read the below criteria carefully to give your nominee the best chance they have at making this annual list of CIO 100 leaders.

The Next CEO?

HotTopics and Hewlett Packard Enterprise recognise the importance of celebrating talent and leadership within the global technology community. The function and its leaders have transformed their organisations into the technology-led, data-driven firms they are becoming—and they themselves continue to evolve as the needs of the business do, too.

CIOs and CTOs are responsible for a breadth and depth of resources, technologies, products, architecture and, most importantly, talent, that together build, sustain and grow the fabric of a business in 2023: its digital fabric, if you will. Tellingly these leaders are tipped to be future COOs, CEOs and heads of boards as companies seek to future proof their operations.

Leadership is also a vital commodity at the world stage today. The global industry is facing several headwinds—political, strategic, health and environmental—and we need the experience and expertise of those who find pragmatic solutions in a crisis, who can build supportive, sustainable teams and can cooperate. And they deserve to be recognised for their efforts.

HotTopics and Hewlett Packard Enterprise can’t wait to see which leaders you nominate for the Global CIO 100 2023. When choosing your candidate, please consult this criteria list for guidance of what our Judges will be looking for:
