EIS Group, formerly Exigen Insurance Solutions, a global provider of insurance core systems to insurers, congratulates Kevin Angland, CIO of IAG New Zealand, for his recognition as CIO of the Year at the recent 2014 CIO Summit in Auckland, New Zealand.
The award recognizes how an individual positions the role of CIO strategically within the company and is given to individuals who show leadership, innovation and foresight in their contribution to ICT and business. The New Zealand CIO Awards are held in conjunction with the annual CIO Summit, now in its eighth year, and judges are comprised of a committee of peers.
In making the award to Angland, the judges commented: “Following several major acquisitions and the significant impact of the Christchurch earthquake, the ICT challenge within IAG has been significant. Kevin has clearly brought a business focus to the role of CIO and has ensured that the ICT team has the culture and focus to deliver on the outcomes the IAG business requires.”
“The EIS Group team offers warm congratulations to Kevin on his well-deserved CIO of the Year honors,” said Alec Miloslavsky, executive chairman and CEO, EIS Group. “Kevin is a talented leader and visionary who has successfully led his IT team through the integration and modernization of core IT systems that resulted in greater business efficiency and growth. We have been fortunate to work with Kevin on IAG’s core systems replacement program and look forward to supporting the continued success of this initiative.”
IAG deployed the EIS Suite™ for policy administration, billing and claims management in September, 2013 for its AMI subsidiary’s general insurance business.
