2016 Business Insurance Women to WatchPosted On: Dec. 7, 2016 12:00 AM CST
Now in its 11th year, the Business Insurance Women to Watch awards program recognizes outstanding women in the insurance and risk management sectors, highlighting what they’ve achieved and examining the personal traits that have helped them attain professional success.
In addition, as the title of the program suggests, we are looking to showcase female leaders with the potential to take on even more significant leadership roles in the still male-dominated ranks of insurance industry executives.
While all the women we feature have unique stories to tell, some common themes you’ll read about include hard work, creativity, a willingness to collaborate with others and encourage others to succeed, support from senior management and family and a determination to maintain a work-life balance that works for them as individuals. In addition, you’ll see that, again this year, many of our honorees see the insurance industry as an excellent, if somewhat unexpected, sector for anybody to find their niche and thrive.
The 25 honorees were nominated by readers and selected by a panel of Business Insurance editors. The selection criteria include recent professional achievements, leadership qualities and professional expertise.
The nominations also were required to include three references from co-workers, clients or other business associates.
Congratulations to all the 2016 Women to Watch honorees listed below. We hope you enjoy reading their stories.
