Business Insurance on 15th November, 2019 named the 2019 winners of its annual Women to Watch awards program. Our Indefatigable Group Chief Operating Officer (GCOO) received the WOMEN TO WATCH Award 2019 from BUSINESS INSURANCE based in the United Kingdom.
Out of the 20 nominees across Europe, Middle East and African, she happens to be the only African to have received this Award for the year 2019.
Business Insurance started the program in 2006 to recognize women leaders doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. From the beginning, the program has recognized winners working around the globe, and in 2017, the publication expanded the awards to include a separate program specifically for female executives in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Business Insurance readers nominate candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business Insurance editors select the honorees based on those nominations.
