The top 100 CIOs of 2012 in the UK


Publishing company, CIO, have announced its yearly top 100 CIOs in the UK.

Top 100 CIO's of 2012 in the UK - CIO logoSince the 2008 recession, it has been very difficult for many companies to operate in the UK. And with the fast and ever changing world of technology, it has become essential for businesses to change the way they operate in order to stay alive and keep their customers happy. 

CIO online editor Mark Chillingworth stated that “success will only result if CIOs embrace the transformation agenda and organisations and their boards understand that if they do not engage with, understand, promote and lobby for technology led transformation they will struggle to adapt to the environment that prevails.”

The list was formed by a CIO panel of experts, who select the top 100 they believe to be the foremost transformative CIOs in the British economy over the last 12 months. So the list is not based around the size of their estate.
