the firm’s merger integration efforts is a testament to the
extraordinary collaboration efforts of our people working across
functional groups throughout the organization.”

The Janus Henderson integration program, for which the firm won the

    capabilities, 18 months ahead of schedule
  • Firm cost synergies in excess of $125 million per year

quickly and efficiently turned from merger integration, to creating the
active asset manager of tomorrow. I’m grateful for the opportunity to
look back and appreciate the hard work of our people – our greatest
asset. We are appreciative of both the employee effort and the trust of
our clients through this process.”

About the CIO 100 Awards

The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and the teams
within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business
value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business
processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers.
The award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Recipients
are selected through a three-step process. First, companies fill out an
online application form detailing an innovative IT and business
initiative. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs)
reviews the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices
and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors review the judges’
recommendations and select the final 100. Coverage of the 2019 CIO 100
Awards will be available online at CIO.com in August 2019 and in the
summer issue of CIO’s digital magazine.
