Voting has started for the prize of Chief Information Officer of the Year at the Insurance Times TechAwards 2015, and Insurance Times readers will choose the winner.

This accolade, awarded in association with Capgemini and Pegasystems, recognises the innovative CIO who has done the most during the year to transform the way the insurance business is conducted, organised or marketed.

And the award is all the more prestigious because the winner will be chosen by you. Cast your vote for one of the four shortlisted candidates (see below). You have until 31 August to register your vote. Only one vote per person.

The CIO award, along with awards for a whole range of technology and social media innovations, will be announced and presented to the winner at a black tie gala dinner on 24 September at The Grange, St Paul’s London.

It promises to be a glittering night as the industry gathers to recognise the innovators who are taking technology to the next level.
