2019 Top 25 Analytics Leaders

While analytics matures and expands into every business, the IAPA Top 25 Analytics Leaders is the only industry recognition of the profession’s best and brightest leaders!

Analytics leaders not only ensure the analytics team deliver value to the business, they champion analytics and insight-driven decision making with the c-suite while also mentoring junior talent to assist the junior’s career progression.

They are the linchpin to the successful delivery of business value from analytics. It’s time they were recognised to their leading-edge role.

“Analytics is no longer a large organisation’s secret weapon,” said Annette Slunjski, General Manager of IAPA.

Judged by a panel of leading analytics and business leaders, the IAPA Top 25 Analytics Leaders recognises excellence in four key areas strategy and impact; influence and advocacy; innovation and improvement; and team growth and leadership.

Nominations are now open to all analytics leaders in Australia.

New this year is a category for Australian analytics leaders currently working overseas – the Top 5 ex-pat analytics leaders is now also open for nominations.

All analytics leaders in the top 25 will be announced at a cocktail event in June and included in a Top 25 Analytics Leaders report and on the IAPA website. Those ranked in the top 10 will be featured online and in the report.

The analytics leader ranked number one will be recognised nationally via an extensive profile in the Top 25 Analytics Report and IAPA website, a promoted profile, a free ticket to the IAPA 2019 National Conference “Advancing Analytics”, a speaking position on the Advancing Analytics program and a trophy.

The IAPA Top 25 Analytics Leaders is supported by Hudson and Altair.
