With The Wires just weeks away, we can now announce the final nominees for our prestigious Ad Tech Personality of the Year and Ad Tech Rising Star awards.

ExchangeWire are delighted to announce the shortlists for two of ad tech's most prestigious awards: Ad Tech Personality of the Year and Ad Tech Rising Star. Always hotly-contested, the votes have been counted and nominees whittled down to the final shortlists.

“These shortlists represent our present and future, and we're thrilled to highlight such a wide range of people and the impact they're having on the industry. We're proud to provide a platform for them all.”

One of the most sought-after awards in the industry, Ad Tech Personality of the Year recognises an individual who has made a significant impact to the ad tech industry. Previous winners include industry heavyweights Sara Vincent, Emma Newman, Cadi Jones, Paul Gubbins, Joanna Burton, Jay Stevens, and Sarah Wood, all of whom received the prestigious accolade after being nominated by industry peers.

This year's shortlisted nominees have all made an impact on the industry, and are all worthy of this prestigious accolade. With competition so fierce, for the first time we've got 11 names on the shortlist rather than 10.
