From: Captive.com, April 3, 2019
With the goal of celebrating, inspiring, and boosting the careers of women in insurance, Insurance Business America Women in Insurance Conference events were held last fall in Chicago, New York, Houston, and Los Angeles. This spring, events will be hosted in Atlanta (April 11) and Miami (April 4) to address the key challenges faced by women in the insurance profession. Captive.com recently caught up with captive insurance industry thought leader Anne Marie Towle, who will take part in a panel titled “Moving Up—Career Advancement for Women in Insurance” at the Miami event. Ms. Towle is currently executive vice president and captive consulting practice leader for JLT Insurance Management (USA) LLC (JLTIM). She shares some of her views on women in insurance below.
Anne Marie, you’ve had a diverse and interesting career in the business world and in captive insurance. Tell us more about how you got involved with captives and how you ultimately decided to focus your career on captives and alternative risk transfer.
Back in the late 1990s, I worked for Conseco Insurance Companies with both traditional insurance companies and captive insurance companies. I also spent over 10 years doing public accounting work on federal and state/local tax issues in the financial and insurance industries. However, my trek deeper into the captive insurance world began when I filled in for a colleague who was on maternity leave. The insurance company she was reviewing had a captive, which worked out well since I had prior captive experience.
