The winners are as follows:

Suren Gupta, Executive Vice President of Allstate Technology and Strategic Ventures

Gupta achieved the award largely due to his role in launching the Good Hands Rescue Mobile initiative, a digital solution that aims to aid drivers in stranded vehicles.

Currently, Good Hands Rescue Mobile helps 25,000 on a monthly basis, something that has given Allstate an eight digit rise in revenues.

James Swanson, Chief Information Officer of Monsanto

Swanson played a leading role in the development of Monsanto’s cloud-based science data platform known as Science@scale.

“This analytics ecosystem has driven a cost savings increase of over $15mm and sales revenue increase of $17mm in the US by completing months of scientific work in a matter of hours,” Forbes said.

Lynden Tennison, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Union Pacific

By internally developing their software through a separate subsidiary, PS Technology, whilst simultaneously launching Breeze Broadband Communications, a new wireless ISP company that leverages other corporate assets, Tennison played a vital role in generating over $50mn in revenue, doubling current numbers for Union Pacific.
