It has been three short months since I accepted the challenge of putting together carrier-focused content for the new website we are launching at Wells Media—CarrierManagment.com.Executive SummaryAs CarrierManagement.com launches to deliver the big picture of leadership and management to C-suite executives and directors of property/casualty, we invite members of our target audience to weigh in on a big-picture question about strategy.
For those of you who don’t know me already, my professional background includes a 17-year career as a journalist covering the property/casualty insurance industry, and a 14-year career before that as a casualty actuary. Seemingly separate worlds, many people think.
In fact, however, they intersect quite often—as they did late last year at a small conference on the campus of St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, where experts I knew from both areas of my former life came together on a common stage. Among the speakers were two former auditors from PwC—a place where I had worked alongside them as an actuary. Also presenting her views was a former actuary who I knew from my days at National Underwriter magazine when I interviewed her to report on developments at an insurance company where she held a senior management position.
