Fidelity Life’s whole-of-business transformation continues to gain momentum, with the country’s largest locally-owned
life insurer last night winning a top culture award.
Fidelity Life’s Technology team, led by Chief Technology Officer Dan Wilkinson, was presented with the Best ICT Team
Culture award at the 2020 CIO Awards
, a celebration of the best of the best from New Zealand’s technology community.Dan Wilkinson
Dan says the award reflects a strong, above-the-line culture right across the business.
“Our culture is the foundation for every single thing we do at Fidelity Life. It was the first thing we invested in when
we started our transformation journey and it’s what gets our people out of bed every day to do the amazing things we do.
“When your culture and strategy are aligned, you will win”, says Dan.
The award represents further progress on Fidelity Life’s bold five-year transformation strategy, which is built on the
idea of reimagining life insurance for New Zealanders and aims to deliver sustainable growth.
Key transformation projects include Project Watson, a $25 million investment in a new technology platform due for
completion in the second half of 2021; and moving to a brand new 6-star rated green building in Auckland’s Fanshawe
Street planned for September 2021.
