I am sure your CIO should be aware of this.  Think about the current priorities of his/her and I am sure one or more of the priorities will address the cloud adoption.  AWS naturally has all the required details to support the case.  Once you know the priority, AWS Account exec can help to put up a biz case

Understand what his or her overall technology and business strategy vision is, how does the cloud fit, perhaps there is a reason why AWS isn’t being used just yet....

Agree with the previous comment. What is the business goal or driver here? Do you have a cloud strategy? If so, how does AWS fit in terms of that strategy and the business objectives?

It's not about pitching AWS per se, but rather you presenting an overall business strategy that leverages public cloud infrastructure to your CIO and then determining which hyperscaler best serves the technical requirements.
