Ikuo Uno, executive advisor to the board and former chairman of Nippon Life Insurance Co., has been named the 2012 Insurance Hall of Fame winner by the International Insurance Society (IIS). Uno will be inducted at a gala dinner during the IIS 48th Annual Seminar in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June.

The IIS says the Insurance Hall of Fame award honors insurance leaders who have made a broad, encompassing and lasting contribution to the insurance industry, and who are recognized by their peers as successful leaders, innovators and visionaries. Nominees for the Insurance Hall of Fame are selected by the IIS Honors Committee, a body of senior insurance executives and academics, and voted on by the IIS membership by secret ballot, tabulated and conducted by Deloitte & Touche.

Uno has more than 50 years of experience in the insurance industry, says IIS. He is a business manager committed to long-term, stable business management with the conviction and determination to fulfill responsibilities to provide security for policyholders. Uno’s career highlights include being appointed president of the company in 1997 and serving as chairman of the Life Insurance Association of Japan in 2000 and 2004. IIS says he also played an important role as an expert member of the Financial System Council Finance Subcommittee from 2001 to 2002, on the government’s Financial System Council.
