Centennial, CO, July 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Insurance Business America has just released the Elite Women in Insurance 2017 report, recognizing 125 insurance professionals who have broken barriers to become some of today’s industry leaders and executives.
In an industry that is mostly male-dominated, IBA turned the spotlight onto the women who made their mark and are slowly changing the face of the insurance space. 20% of the women on this list hold top CEO or leadership positions, including the first female to start an insurance provider in the US. This year’s list also includes the executive officers, division heads, and agency managers who have overcome obstacles to get to where they are now—entitling them a place in this prestigious list.
“Despite women’s growing presence in the insurance industry, only a few have successfully broken through leadership roles,” said Heather Turner, IBA journalist. “However, the women represented on this year’s report have proven that it is no longer a male-dominated industry with the number of them breaking through barriers and using their collective influence to mold a brighter future for the insurance space; inspiring the success of their peers every day.”
