RIS CIO of the Year 2021

RIS is pleased to announce the winners of our 10th annual CIO of the Year awards.

For a decade, RIS has been presenting these prestigious awards to retail CIOs who have demonstrated an innovative use of technology that has moved their retail organization forward.

Every year we ask you, our valued readers, to nominate a deserving CIO for consideration. Our panel of judges then examines the entries and votes for the retail executives they believe have had the greatest impact on their organizations and the retail industry at large.

In an unprecedented year of challenges, RIS was presented with one of the most impressive lists of nominees to date, each one exemplifying how technology can overcome hardships and move the industry forward. With this in mind we choose two CIOs to honor this year for their work which impacted so many consumers’ lives in a year of upheaval. Congratulations to each CIO of the Year from all of us at RIS
