General Electric out in front with five nominations for the IR Magazine Awards – US 2022
The nominations for the IR Magazine Awards – US 2022 have been revealed. General Electric leads the way with five nominations, including for best overall IR (large cap) and best IR officer (large cap) for Steve Winoker.
Close behind is a group of companies that appear on four short lists each: American Airlines Group, Caesars Entertainment, Danaher, First Advantage, Hilton Worldwide Holdings and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Companies with three nominations include Alliance Data Systems, Johnson Controls International and Medtronic.
The awards are split into two sections. The awards-by-research categories are decided by a survey of portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and sell-side analysts who cover US companies. They select the winners for best overall IR, best IR officer, best IR by a senior management team and best in sector.
The awards-by-nomination categories cover a range of IR practice areas, such as annual reports, ESG reporting, investor meetings, technology and crisis management. Companies are able to submit entries for the different awards, with the winners chosen by a panel of expert judges.
This year, the panel of judges features:
- William Galligan, former vice president of investor relations, Kansas City Southern
- Laurie Havelock, editor-at-large, IR Magazine
- Gary LaBranche, president and CEO, NIRI
- Carol Murray-Negron, president, Equanimity
- Maureen Wolff, CEO, Sharon Merrill Associates
Following two years of virtual events, the awards gala is returning this year to its long-standing home at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York. For more information or to book a ticket, please click here.
