And the nominees are in! The CIODAY jury managed to make a short list of the fittest and finest CIOs that are suitable for the 2017 CIO of the Year Award. Each of every one of these CIOs excel as a leader, but only one of them can be the CIO of the Year 2017.
The jury indicated they were looking for a technology leader who achieved flexibility, scalability, self-organisation, and operating in ecosystems. “Leaders have to stretch their roles, as technology is everywhere.” says Rob Beijleveld, CEO of ICT Media and the initiator of the CIO of the Year Award.
“CIOs are moving towards business and management, in which technology is a means to enhance efficiency no longer but a way to tap into new products, services and target groups.”
The following CIOs passed the Jury’ bar and made it on the shortlist: Arthur Govaert (Radboud UMC), Bouke Hoving (KPN), Leo Brand (Vopak), Olli Hyyppä (NXP), Ton van Rhijn (CZ) and Jaco van Goudswaard (Kadaster).
In the coming weeks we will inform you who these CIOs are and why they might deserve the CIO of the Year Award 2017. Read more about the selection process and criteria.
