"We were the first major offshore company to organize by vertical industry, and we are continually improving the value we can provide to our customers," said Kumar Mahadeva, Chairman and CEO of Cognizant. "Cognizant is the onsite/offshore partner of choice for a growing number of insurance industry leaders. Our deep knowledge of the industry further enhances our value to clients."
