Technology CEO of the Year (2024)
Innovation in Business is proud to introduce a new and exciting programme to its established roster: the Technology CEO of the Year Awards 2024! This programme celebrates and recognises the most influential and innovative CEOs in the technology sector, who have shown outstanding leadership, vision, and strategy in leading their businesses to success.
The technology sector in 2024 is facing rapid and disruptive changes, driven by factors such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, biotechnology, quantum computing and cybersecurity. These changes create new opportunities and challenges for CEOs, who display remarkable skills to adapt and innovate to stay ahead of the competition.
The technology industry is undergoing a rapid and profound transformation in 2023, driven by the emergence of new technologies and the changing needs and expectations of customers. Global CEOs of technology companies have accelerated their digital transformation by months and even years, leveraging the likes of artificial intelligence and cloud computing to create more intelligent products and services. The future of the CEO role is becoming more technology-focused outside the tech industry, as companies look for leaders who can harness technology to drive innovation and growth.
The metaverse, blockchain, nanotechnology, and gene editing are some of the tech trends that will create new possibilities and challenges in 2023, as they enable new forms of interaction, communication, value creation, and problem solving. The industry will also face issues around supply chains, workforce, and innovation, as well as macroeconomic and global uncertainties. To overcome these challenges and seize new opportunities, CEOs in the tech industry will need to think about how to combine different technologies to create synergies and solutions that address complex problems. Other industries will also be disrupted through the influence of technology, creating new revenue streams and customer value.
The Technology CEO of the Year Awards 2024 are open to all CEOs in the technology sector, regardless of the size or turnover of their organisations. The awards are based on merit and our unbiased research team work tirelessly to decide our successful awardees.
Innovation in Business’s awards programmes are completely free to enter and if you are lucky enough to be successful, you will be presented to our circulation of 68,000 and promoted on our official website for a minimum of 12 months.

The researching of nominees
The Innovation in Business team work ardently to identify the firms that are truly delivering and achieving great things for their industry sector. We drive many of the nominations ourselves and also encourage external nominations via subscribers, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.
The Shortlisting of nominees
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, and our research team find this very beneficial when determining businesses deserving of recognition.
Professional evaluation and judging of those shortlisted
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them and also gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria including client and customer dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our Innovation in Business award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
Gain maximum exposure for your win
Innovation in Business award winners are offered a range of promotional packages which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website. We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their marketing needs and initiatives.
