CCS Insight’s Ben Wood Named in Top Five Tech Analysts of 2020

CCS Insight’s Chief of Research, Ben Wood, has been recognized as one of the top five technology analysts in 2020 in a report published by Apollo Research.

The ranking is based on analysts who received the most press coverage in the US and Europe during 2020, drawing on an examination of nearly 4,000 analysts.

Wood was also the European analyst with the most media coverage, being the only non-US candidate to make the cut. Craig Hodges, Client Services Director at Apollo Research, said, “This research really underlines Ben’s strong reputation as a leading commentator on tech topics”. Hodges also noted that Wood earned a place on a similar list published in 2017 and that he was part a crop who “really nailed the volume of coverage”.

Established more than 20 years ago, Apollo Research is media intelligence company specializing in the tech sector. It provides clients with insight about how their press coverage compares with that of rivals, allowing its customers to develop better, more effective media strategies.

“I’m delighted to be included on this list”, commented Wood. “Supporting the media with independent and objective commentary and analysis on the latest technology trends is a privilege that I’ve never taken for granted. It’s a testament to the work we’ve done at CCS Insight to build a globally recognized and respected research team that the media regularly contacts for opinion.”

Shaun Collins, CEO of CCS Insight, added, “This is an amazing achievement and richly deserved. At CCS Insight we appreciate how much work Ben puts into this important part of being an analyst and we’re thrilled that others see it too”.
