Never has the role of the chief information officer been more demanding—or more impactful. Today’s innovative corporate technology leaders are driving everything from hybrid work strategies to AI-infused automation initiatives, as well as helping their companies delight customers with new online experiences and channels.

That’s why Forbes is launching a call for nominations for its second annual CIO Next list, which will highlight 50 top technology leaders who are reshaping and reinventing the role in exciting ways. (Last year’s list can be found here.)
The compilation will be based on qualitative research by Forbes editors and informed by outside experts. To be eligible for consideration, nominees must work for businesses headquartered in North America or ones that are listed in the region. They must also have been with their current employers for at least a year.
