National Life’s Nimesh Mehta Wins CIO Of the Year for Dallas

Nemesh Mehta

Montpelier, VT - (March 2, 2021) Nimesh Mehta, National Life Group’s Chief Information Officer, has been recognized with the CIO Of the Year Award by Dallas CIO, recognizing his leadership in information technology.

Mehta won in the large enterprise category for organizations of more than $2 billion in annual revenue.

National Life Chairman, CEO and President Mehran Assadi praised Mehta for integrating technology initiatives with the needs of the rest of the business.

“I believe that growth stems in large part from our ability to fuse technology and the business into one,” Assadi said. “Historically, business and technology functions were separate and lived in silos with little cross-functional collaboration. Nimesh exemplifies our approach that we develop and execute a single unified strategy.”

Mehta has been Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at National Life since 2018. He was previously the Head of Life and Annuity Operations and also served as the Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Technology Officer.

Before joining National Life in 2008 he served in various leadership positions at Lincoln Financial Group for 14 years.
