Announcing this year’s winners

Supercell’s Ilkka Paananen collected the CEO of the Year trophy at the fourth annual Digital Masters Awards, whilst Spotify and Farfetch each took away two of the eleven Green Cubes.

The event, held at the Roundhouse in Camden, gathered 1,000 C-level executives, entrepreneurs and investors to celebrate the world-class executives leading European companies to global success. The ceremony was hosted by broadcaster Rory Cellan-Jones, and featured entertainment from Groove Armada.

Other winners included leading executives from Adyen, Klarna, Deepmind, Centrica, Burberry and BBVA. The full list can be viewed here.

This year’s winners were judged by a panel of 32 of the region’s leading tech investors and advisors, and chaired by Daniel Waterhouse of Balderton Capital.
