Every year the silicon.com CIO 50 lists the most influential IT chiefs in the UK.

This year marks the fifth annual list of the top IT chiefs in the UK. The voting process starts right now and we’re looking forward to another fantastic line-up to showcase the top CIO talent in the UK.

The silicon.com CIO50 list is created by CIOs, for CIOs. And if you are a CIO or IT director based in the UK, you can help create this year’s list by voting for CIOs who you think should be included.

We are looking for UK-based CIOs who excel in terms of their leadership ability, delivery and execution, innovation, and influence. All votes are anonymous. The list is unveiled later this year at a CIO-only networking reception.

So if you are a UK-based CIO who would like to vote for this year’s silicon.com CIO50, please email silicon.com editor Steve Ranger for more details. But hurry – voting closes soon.
