In technology, Jackson Senior Vice President of Systems and Programming Mark Clark was selected for Insurance & Technology’s Elite Eight for Insurance CIO’s. “At Jackson, the business needs drive the IT agenda of the company,” said Sopha. “Our organization moves at a swift pace – specifically, in the design and implementation of new technology and products – which helps to position Jackson competitively within the market.”
