NORTHBROOK -- Allstate technology executive Pete Corrigan has been awarded a 2013 CIO Ones to Watch Award from IDG's CIO magazine and the CIO Executive Council.

Corrigan, senior vice president, technology and operations for Allstate, is among 20 award winners being recognized. He will accept the award during a ceremony scheduled for May 7 at CIO magazine's Leadership Event.

"At Allstate, we value and reward customer focus, excellence in execution, and creative and innovative thinking," said Suren Gupta, executive vice president. "Pete has excelled in all these areas and is highly respected for his business knowledge and technology expertise. He is a leader that will make change happen and is highly deserving of this award."

Corrigan works to develop and execute the technical elements of business strategies. Among his recent successes has been to lead, from a technology perspective, the adoption of the new eAgent software system, which provides agents a comprehensive way to manage their customers. An overwhelming percentage of agents have already opted in for this new tool to strengthen customer relationships and better serve their needs. In 2006, Corrigan consolidated four data centers into two best-in-class centers, with one of them earning Gold-level LEED certification.

Throughout Corrigan's career, he has garnered business results by focusing on the growth and development of talent. He is recognized as the founder of Allstate's Emerging Leader Program which, for over 10 years, has helped create new leaders for Allstate's technology team; the program has been so effective that in 2013 it was expanded to encompass all of Allstate's business areas.

Corrigan has served as a member of his local school board for four years, leading both the technology and expense committees. The technology committee developed and implemented a strategic plan providing a state-of-the-art computer training center and a computer to every student. In addition, he has led the Allstate Helping Hands committee as it coordinates volunteer efforts to help deserving organizations.

"This year's group of Ones to Watch honorees bring a sharp sense of business savvy and technology leadership to their companies," says Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief, CIO magazine & Events. "They've all demonstrated the kind of innovative spirit, focus and determination that future CIOs will need in such abundance."
