Who is your ideal IT superhero? Who would you want to fight the image of the geeky IT pro?

In September, ComputerWeekly.com and IT training company Firebrand launched a nationwide search to find the next generation of IT superheroes.

We were looking for men and women who were not just technically sound, but were passionate about the IT industry and who would make great role models and ambassadors for the industry.

Each of our six shortlisted finalists produced a video pitch for why should vote on them being an IT superhero.... well now you have cast your votes and made your choice. Click on each winner's name to watch the video again.

Congratulations to Toby Brown our overall IT superhero, who received the most online votes, and to our two runner-ups, Chris Lowden and Robert Howard.

Toby, who works for Italian achitectural lightening company iGuzzini, told ComputerWeekly.com that he was proud to be voted our IT superhero and he hoped his video captured the spirit of the competition. "I tried to show the things that happen in our daily lives that rely on software and computers . IT is not all code and cold pizza, there are a lot of great things we do with it too."
