The Institute of Industry Analyst Relations (IIAR) has just announced the results of a survey to identify who analyst relations practitioners believe should win the award of ‘analyst of the year’.

There were 116 respondents from around the world, and they named David Mitchell of Ovum as EMEA analyst of the year. David has spoken at several of our popular CBR Dining Club sessions, so we knew he had it in him!

David Micthell, SVP IT Research at Ovum: likes wearing braces, and being named EMEA analyst of the year.

Ray Wang of Forrester was voted analyst of the year, so congrats to Ray too.

But a special mention must go to analyst firm RedMonk, which came in the top three in the Americas despite its relatively small size. Of course CBR spotted RedMonk founder James Governor’s potential a long time ago, which is why he’s another who we have asked to speak at various CBR Dining Club sessions. Nice one, James.

Congratulations also to Freeform Dynamics, and to MWD, another small analyst firm set up by ex-Ovum people, and which also had a strong showing in the survey.

MWD’s latest recruit, Bola Rotibi was the number 8 analyst in the poll. MWD was similarly ranked in the analyst firm category on a global basis and was number 5 in EMEA, so it will come as no surprise that Bola, Neil Ward-Dutton and Neil Macehiter have all spoken at – you guessed it – CBR Dining Club events! Can we pick ‘em or can we pick ‘em?

What can I say? You’ll just have to come to a CBR Dining Club event soon to hear from a current or future analyst of the year: we clearly have an eye for quality people 😉 I’ll stop mentioning CBR Dining Club now. If you haven’t checked out CBR Dining Club by now, you probably never will, right?

On a more serious note, congratulations to all the analysts who have been doing something right as far as analyst relations people are concerned. But hang on, isn’t that like being named monkey of the year by the zoo-keepers instead of the paying public? I dunno, it’s a jungle out there!
