Top 100 IT Leaders

Why did Global CIO launch ‘Top 100 IT Leaders’?

Our mission is to gather IT leaders worldwide by creating a professional environment where they can share their knowledge, gain recognition, and communicate with colleagues. To get to know each other better, we have created a 'Top 100 IT Leaders' platform where executives can introduce themselves to peer CIOs, CTOs, CDTOs and IT leaders from various industries. Participation is free.

Apply to the ‘Top 100 IT Leaders’

How does the 'Top 100 IT Leaders' work?

To join the project, candidates must fill out the application form with a bio, professional experience, and achievements. They also must specify a recommender, a C-level manager who can verify their experience. After that, their profile will be published in the list of 'Top 100 IT Leaders'.

How to apply?

To participate in the "Top 100 IT Leaders", candidates must hold an executive or deputy role and be responsible for defining the IT strategy and making high-level decisions. Usually, it corresponds to CIO, CTO, CISO, CDTO, Head of Information Technology or IT Director positions.

What is about the timing?
The project will run from May 6th to July 3rd. You can apply yourself or nominate fellow IT leaders until June 13th. During the next two weeks, the voting will take place. The final list will be presented on July 3rd at the awarding ceremony.

What will IT Leaders get as a result?

It is a good question! Participation offers a range of benefits, including:
  • Recognition from colleagues
  • Opportunity to prove your skills
  • Sharing insights and best practices of your company
Our community will be happy to confirm your participation with a certificate, and category leaders will receive, in addition to the diploma, a subscription to the Compass CIO, which gives more opportunities for professional development.
