Candidates are also considered on the degree to which any ICT innovations have delivered a strategic advantage and by how they have personally influenced the decision-making process.

Mr Smith was recognised for his leadership in tackling key challenges after taking the reins at Public Trust in 2013, and for his role in transforming the company’s structure, culture and technology.
