HOLT and IT Department shortlisted for more awards

After winning three awards in two days back in July, and being shortlisted for a further five since – three of which will be decided in the coming week –  the incredible success HOLT has had in terms of being recognised by the insurance industry continued after the announcement that it has been shortlisted in a further two categories at this year’s Insurance Times Awards.

Sponsored by, amongst others, Aviva, Ageas and Marker Study – and with stiff competition from some of the UK’s top insurers, claims handling organisations, legal and technology firms – the industry magazine’s flagship awards are designed to celebrate excellence and innovation whilst also recognising the best and brightest across the breadth of UK general insurance. 

HOLT has been shortlisted in two categories:

•	Excellence in Technology – Claims and Excellence in Technology – General

Partner and Head of Innovations and Client Solutions, David Scott, said: “These further nominations reflect again the incredible and considerable amount of work undertaken by our Counter Fraud and IT teams. They underline our determination to continuously innovate in order to fight fraud across the insurance industry.”

Following further presentations scheduled for October, the winners will be announced at a gala event in London in December.

Meanwhile, good luck to HOLT for tomorrow (Thursday 9 September) and next week (Wednesday 15 September) when the British Claims Awards and the British Insurance Awards are announced respectively. HOLT is shortlisted for three awards across both these prestigious events.

HOLT is also shortlisted for two more categories in the Insurance Times Tech and Innovation Awards on 3 November.

Congratulations must also go to our IT Department who have been shortlisted for two awards in the British Legal Technology Awards.

Hosted by Netlaw Media, these awards recognise leadership, innovation and technology as well as the individuals, teams and suppliers transforming the future of legal services. Our IT Department have been shortlisted in two categories:

  • Most Innovative Firm of the Year
  • Security Team of the Year

On being shortlisted, John Presland, our Chief Information Officer, said: “For the team to be recognised for the innovation and security work we are doing for our colleagues and clients is fantastic news. Delivering value early, and often, using the latest security tools and techniques is our main focus and motivation.

“It’s great to be shortlisted along with such an illustrious peer group and I am looking forward to a fabulous evening celebrating with my team and other finalists.”

Winners of the British Legal Technology Awards will be announced in London on 11 November.
