OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO TECHNOLOGY IN NEW ZEALAND AWARD 2015

Winner: Sir Neville Jordan

Sir Neville Jordan has long championed New Zealand's ICT industry in a variety of roles that include as founder of MAS Technology and Endeavour Capital, advisor to many government research and science agencies, and pioneer venture capitalist. He has invested in more than 35 start-up and early stage companies, from research, science and technology to horticulture and large-scale real estate, with many successful exits achieved.

CIO Awards judge Wendy Bussen commented  “The CIO Awards celebrate excellence in the industry. We recognise that high performing technology professionals, no matter where they are in their career path, have a positive impact on their employer, customers, suppliers and taxpayers. That’s why it’s so rewarding celebrating their work. This year we were inspired by the professionals who are leading projects to help young people engage in ICT and in the process are creating a pipeline of future talent”.

Ullrich Loeffler, Managing Director of IDC Australia and New Zealand, says “The quality and popularity of entries in the 2015 CIO Awards from individuals and teams shows their value to participants, employers and sponsors. We are also fortunate to attract a highly experienced judging panel representing a range of perspectives.”
