2016 CGT Award Winners
CGT honors an elite group of consumer goods companies and executives for envisioning and executing transformational business and technology initiatives that stand to revolutionize both their organizations and the industry as a whole.
The awards process started in January, when nominations in five award categories (detailed below) were collected from the CGT community. These nominations were narrowed down to a select group of finalists per award by CGT’s editorial staff based on multiple criteria, like project size and scope and results since launch. This short list was then sent to the magazine's Advisory Board members, which selected one “winner” in each category.
With the votes now tallied, CGT would like to proudly present our 2016 award winners and finalists. (Click on the award titles to read our coverage.)
