The Elite 8 Pantheon

With our 10th Anniversary Elite 8 November issue, and here on the I&T blog, we present the complete list of Elite 8 honorees, going back to 1999, the year it all started. For a graphically rich version, with additional reporting on some of the past honorees, see the print issue version of the list, "The Elite 8 Hall of Fame."

During the months-long process of naming each year's Insurance & Technology Elite 8 Award honorees, the editors of I&T are often asked who has been chosen in the past. Some who inquire may be new to the world of insurance IT. Others are familiar with Elite 8 and could name a good few honorees in the past. All are curious to see the entire list, which we refer to internally as the "Pantheon."
