Driving Value

Being named one of the 2016 and 2015 CIO100 by CIO Magazine and a Top 25 CTOs by InfoWorld in 2009 was pretty cool. Crain’s Chicago recognition as one of the Tech 50 for 2014 was amazing. Being called one of the 20 most social CIOs to watch on Twitter was interesting and kind of funny. I truly appreciate the recognition and continue to strive to drive value in everything I do professionally.

However, I am most proud of the relationships of respect I have built with people with whom I have worked, volunteered, learned or otherwise shared my professional journey. And the connections I have with each of you.

Thank YOU for the connection.

Adam arrived at Aviva like a breath of fresh air. He is a man who leads through deeply held values and does not simply rely on his undoubted skills and expertise to achieve results.

Adam is a strong and charismatic leader. During his time at Aon, Adam built a cohesive global team from what was previously a collection of disparate teams focused on serving their local stakeholders. Adam also built strong relationships with our major technology vendors.
