IIAR Analyst Relations Professional of the Year 2014 – and the winner is…

IIAR AR Professional of the YearSo here’s what you’ve all been waiting for – perhaps you’re wondering, “Is it someone I know? Could it be me?!” Well, before we get that far, let’s take a good look at ourselves to determine if we deserve the recognition or not.

Announcing the 2014 IIAR Analyst Relations Team of the Year

IIAR AR Team of the Year 2014

Working for a large IT or Telco vendor brings many perks but it’s not all plain-sailing.

However these surveys – by their nature – remain proprietary information and the industry has never looked itself in the face as a whole to see what it looks like across the board.
Enter the IIAR with the idea to run a survey of all the analysts across the globe, to see what they think en masse of the Analyst Relations community. The idea is simple: for the past few years we have run a survey among AR professionals to find out who is the favourite analyst of the year, but now the tables are turned and it’s the analysts’ turn to vote on who is the favourite AR professional of the year…
