With entries already received from CIOs in the media, travel, utilities, healthcare, professional services, energy, finance, retail, public sector, education, construction and manufacturing sectors, now is the time to showcase your story ahead of the February 22 deadline.

Going into its fifth year in its current format, the CIO 100 showcases the UK's leading technology executives, and the way information and technology are used by their organisations to meet the needs of internal and external customers and drive transformation. CIO UK and a panel of respected former CIOs and CIO advisors is welcoming responses from the most senior technology and IT professionals and business leaders at their organisations as we hope to showcase the great stories of UK organisations and their Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers, IT directors, Heads of IT - as well as Chief Digital Officers and COOs.

Halfords CIO Anna Barsby topped the 2015 edition of the CIO 100, joining Nissan's Stephen Kneebone, James Thomas of UCLH, and easyJet CIO Trevor Didcock as CIO 100 leaders.

CIO UK is delighted to welcome 2012 CIO 100 high-flyers Didcock and former Severn Trent Water CIO Myron Hrycyk to the CIO 100 judging panel. They add their expertise to the 2015 panel of Mark Chillingworth, Edward Qualtrough, Mike Altendorf, Matt Ballantine, Ian Cohen, Ian Cox, Jerry Fishenden, Ade McCormack, Jayne Nickalls, Catherine Stagg-Macey and Richard Sykes.
