Women in Insurance - April 28 2021
In this interview series, we profile women who are shaping the future of insurance. This week, we speak with Carrie Busic, Commercial Lines Product and Profitability Leader at Westfield. Carrie shares the career journey that led her to insurance and discusses what the industry can do to attract new talent and ensure inclusivity and diversity in insurance leadership.
Carrie, tell us about your path to insurance. What attracted you to the profession?
As a second-generation insurance professional, I saw a career in insurance provide a stable foundation for my family throughout my childhood. While in college, I held various seasonal and part-time roles in the industry before I began my career. This allowed me to build my understanding of the industry, potential career paths as well as the culture of the company I was considering. As a consummate learner, the diversity of roles and opportunities that were available not just in the industry but within a single company is what attracted me the most.
