  • June Drewry, EVP, Corporate Process Executive (and former CIO) The Chubb Insurance Group of Companies

  • While focused on information technology, Drewry has had other strategic responsibilities such as corporate planning and knowledge management.
  • Drewry joined Chubb in 2005 as a transitional IT leader. One of her missions was to groom an internal successor, says John Degnan, vice chairman and COO of Chubb. But she also oversaw the completion of Chubb's infrastructure outsourcing project during a critical juncture. "In a very short time—three years—she had a very large impact on the IT structure and the service it provided to the business units," says Degnan. Managing change is one of Drewry's special talents. "She has been a master at going into very large and complex organizations and turning them around," says Darwin John, former CIO of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints and a past president of SIM, where he met Drewry almost 20 years ago.
