Now Accepting Nominations for the 2019 ITA Bridge Awards

The ITA Bridge Award honors both insurance IT leaders and their counterparts on the business side. Business opportunities are sometimes lost and IT implementations fail when leaders from IT and the business side are unable to collaborate effectively and “bridge” the gap between technology and business.

The ITA Bridge Award is presented to both the IT leader and the business executive(s) that have demonstrated a clear understanding of what each side can do for the other. Nominations can be made by insurance companies, software solution providers, and industry consultants.

Past award winners include:

  • 2018: Miguel Edwards and Darren Robbins of Allstate; Sandra Boucher and Mike Anselmo of the NSM Insurance Group
  • 2017:  Ruben Fechner and Sherri Silver of Erie Insurance Group; Andrew Rear of Digital Partners and Timothy Attia of Slice Labs
  • 2016: James Sullivan, Tom Campana, and Jeff Martin of the Motorists Insurance Group
  • 2015: Gary Ouellette and Lisa Keysar of Union Mutual of VermontThe award is open to IT leaders, as well as leaders of any of the insurance industry business functions, including underwriting, claims, finance, customer service, actuary or marketing, for a North American insurance company. The award is not reflective of a single software implementation, but rather a long-term connectivity between the business unit and IT that demonstrates how an insurance company can operate more efficiently and effectively.

    The winners of the 2019 ITA Bridge Award will be announced at ITA LIVE 2019, our annual educational and networking conference scheduled for May 5-7, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Photographs and a feature article on the winners will also be published in ITA Pro magazine.

    Deadline for nominations is December 31, 2018.
