The best way to predict the future, they say, is to create it.

Here at Grocer Towers we’re compiling our latest Power List – the eagerly awaited annual countdown of the trade’s most influential figures. (Here are parts one and two of the 2010 list.)

Despite a raft of comings and goings at some of the industry’s top players, the rankings will feature some familiar faces.

But there are sure to be some surprises too – and this year we want your help. Drop us an email, to, with your suggestions for who should be in the rankings.

You could nominate yourself, or your boss (if you have one). Maybe there’s someone you’ve worked with in the past year, or whose dealings you’ve admired from afar.

And they needn’t be drawn from the familiar ranks of retailers, suppliers and wholesalers we write about every week.

Who’s made a difference from the wider worlds of business, politics and the media? Whose word do you hang on from the marketing gurus and financing titans, the analysts and technologists?

Get in touch and let us know who helped shape your world in the past year – and who will wield the most influence over the next 12 months.
