Women in Insurance - May 21 2020
In this interview series, we profile women who are shaping the future of insurance. By highlighting their achievements and sharing their insights, we aim to have an open dialogue about what carriers, brokers and insurtechs can do to promote greater gender parity and diversity in the world of insurance and increase the number of women in leadership positions. This week, we chat with Carey Anne Nadeau, CEO and Founder, Ometry. Carey Anne sits on the Advisory Board for Women in Insurance Leadership conference and is the podcast host of the Golfcour.se, a modern forum for business conversations in insurance, distributed by Insurance Nerds.
Carey Anne, tell us about your path to insurance. What attracted you to the industry/profession?
I was born in Cromwell, Connecticut, just south of Hartford, so I joke that insurance was in my blood. But seriously, it took me working professionally outside of insurance for 15 years before I saw an opportunity to build a startup company that could solve real insurance problems. I think my expertise from outside the industry helps to bring a fresh perspective and helps to show carriers, from non-insurance examples, how to modernize and launch new products.
