Recognizing the Industry’s Up and Coming Innovative Leaders

A recent LIMRA survey of financial services executives revealed how changes in regulation, advances in technology, and shifts in demographics and consumer expectations are challenging their current business practices.

As the industry faces so many external changes, it will be necessary for companies to re-evaluate their business practices to incorporate new technology and strategies.  That’s where innovation comes in.

LIMRA is accepting nominations for 25 rising stars under age 40 in the financial services industry who have introduced an innovative approach to a business challenge. For example:

  • Do you know someone who has been instrumental in the adoption of new technology, like Big Data or predictive analytics? 
  • Has someone spearheaded a program to improve an aspect of customer engagement, such as contact centers, websites, or online chat? 
  • Who has created a new tool or process to help advisors be more efficient and effective, such as lead generation or training programs? 

We want to showcase the most innovative initiatives across the industry!

Please describe what makes your nominee a rising star demonstrating innovation. The winners will be announced in August and recognized at the 2016 LIMRA Annual Conference this October.

Deadline: July 29 at 5:00 pm EDT
