Computer Weekly has launched the fourth annual UKtech50, the definitive list of the real movers and shakers in UK IT - the CIOs, industry executives, public servants and business leaders driving the creation of a high-tech economy.
We want your vote for the person you think should top the list this year. Below you can find a shortlist of 50 leaders chosen by our expert judging panel, and selected from over 100 individuals nominated by readers, the Computer Weekly team, and the judges themselves.
We will reveal the winner at a special event in London on 4 December, where we count down that list to announce the most influential person in UK IT over the next 12 months. You can register to attend the UKtech50 event by clicking here.
Whoever comes on top of the list will be the person that, in the opinion of our judges and the reader vote, holds the most influence over the future of the UK IT sector in 2014 – and hence the future of IT professionals across the country.
Read more about UKtech50 2013 here, and submit your vote now - simply click on the person you wish to vote for, then click the Submit button below the list. Voting closes at 5pm on 15 November 2013.
Editor's note: The final UKtech50 list will be chosen by combining the decision of the judging panel with the votes of our readers. The combined reader vote will carry the same weight as that of one judge, and will provide the UK IT professional input into the order of the list. The editor's decision on the UKtech50 list will be final.
