Business Insurance's annual Women to Watch feature is our attempt to identify and recognize individuals doing exceptional work in risk management, benefits management, commercial insurance and related fields.
The insurance industry traditionally has been a male-dominated sector, especially at the executive levels. But as we have seen from the women we have profiled in this annual feature throughout the past five years, there is a growing number of talented and dynamic female executives holding key positions within the sector.
As a result, as the years go by, it gets tougher for the panel of BI editors involved in the selection process to narrow down the field of candidates and select only a few honorees from the numerous nominations we receive.
We think you'll agree, though, that the nominees selected have outstanding credentials and are exceptional leaders in their fields.
