Jul 24, 20061 min

Last Monday, Peter Logothetis took on his first official CIO position with insurance company Winterthur U.S. Holdings.  He’s overseeing a 250-person IT department.  No stranger to the insurance industry, Logothetis has worked for Liberty Mutual, Kemper Insurance and CNA Insurance. Prior to joining Winterthur U.S. Holdings, he was an IT VP at Liberty Mutual for three years in its Indianapolis location.

Crain’s Cleveland Business reports that FedEx Custom Critical promoted Chris O’Neil to CIO.  O’Neil most recently served as the Green, Ohio-based company’s managing director of IT, a position he’s held since he joined the company in 2000.
