Business Insurance's 2012 Women to Watch honorees

Business Insurance's annual Women to Watch feature recognizes women doing outstanding work in insurance, risk management, employee benefits and related fields.

Given that the insurance industry remains a male-dominated business sector, especially at the executive levels, Women to Watch also strives to serve as a springboard to encourage more women to break through that glass ceiling.

While it always has been difficult for the Business Insurance senior editors involved in the selection process to narrow the field of candidates and select only 25 honorees, this year was especially challenging given the exceptional caliber of the women who were nominated. Moreover, we received hundreds of nominations from around the globe and from nearly every part of the insurance sector.

But taking into consideration their notable achievements in the past five years, and how they have helped other women advance in the business as well as their current responsibilities, we believe we have identified the future women leaders of the insurance industry.

Abbreviated profiles of the Women to Watch honorees begin on page 12 of the Dec. 3 issue of Business Insurance magazine. To read the profiles in their entirety, see below.
