On the 5th of December, on a boat in the River Thames in London, the 2023 IIAR> Awards winners were announced. The analyst relations professionals had voted for their top industry analysts, while the industry analysts voted on leading analyst relations (AR) pros and agencies. Culminating in an independent, industry awards result where…
…Team Starsight was voted by industry analysts the #1 analyst relations agency in EMEA of the year 2023! After placing on the global podium in 2021 and 2022, we’re now officially number one in EMEA. Throughout this year, we’ve been nurturing our analyst relationships and driving insights-led analyst relations on behalf of our clients. We are thrilled that our hard work has paid off and that industry analysts themselves recognise our expertise in the field. For us, it’s a true testimony of our deep relationships with those top tech influencers.
Once again, the FIGIDC was awarded analyst firm of the year. IDC’s Judith Justin was also recognised as IIAR> analyst client partner of the year. For the analyst of the year awards it was spread across analyst firms and split by region, where in the Americas the title went to Ed Anderson / Gartner, for EMEA to Maxine Holt / Omdia and for APAC to Swapnil Bhatnagar / Avasant. Congratulations to you all!
Further congratulations to the in-house awardees, where Microsoft took the top spot for AR team of the year. Microsoft team member Patrick O’Rourke was also recognised as a runner up in the AR pro of the year award for Americas. For AR professional of the year 2023, again, each region had a winner, with Jessica Munoz / Veeam taking the top spot for Americas, Clare Flanagan / Amdocs for EMEA and Orsi Sulyok / HPE for APAC.

Despite a tumultuous year for the tech industry, these awards are a recognition of hard work and industry excellence, and team Starsight is grateful to be recognised amongst all these other greats. Here’s to a great end of the year and more AR brilliance in 2024.
