Nominate the 2017 Top 50 People in E-Commerce

envelopeOur sister site, Internet Retailing has started the search for the 2017 Top 50 People in E-Commerce by asking readers to nominate the e-commerce professionals they think are leaders in the industry.

Nominations will remain open through October, after which a panel of e-commerce experts will judge the nominees and their own selections to determine the final list of 50.

Sponsored by StarTrack, our 2017 Top 50 People in E-Commerce report will feature the chosen individuals, including headshots and bios for every person on the list as well as exclusive content about the current e-commerce landscape.

This is Internet Retailing’s second annual report recognising the biggest and brightest e-commerce talents in Australia and the first time readers have been invited to weigh in on the candidates.

The report will be published on March 29, 2017, in conjunction with a Top 50 People in E-Commerce launch event at Inside Retail Live, Australia’s major retail industry conference and expo, in Sydney.

A new panel of experts has been assembled to determine this year’s e-commerce standouts, bringing to the table fresh eyes and many years of experience in the industry. Confirmed judges include:

  • Larry Diamond, founder and CEO of zipMoney
  • Corinne Franks, general manager of the National Online Retailers Association (NORA)
  • Ben Franzi, general manager of e-commerce platforms & digital at Australia Post
  • Nathan Huppatz, co-founder
  • Graham Jackson, CEO of Fluent Retail
  • Jo Krause, digital specialist at Six Degrees Executive
  • Ryan Murtagh, founder and director of Neto
  • Andy Powell, director of Agile Commerce Consulting

Internet Retailing editors Mark Freidin and Heather McIlvaine will also be on the panel. Help choose the 2017 Top 50 People in E-Commerce by making a nomination today.
