Women in Insurance - September 24 2020
In this interview series, we profile women who are shaping the future of insurance. This week, we’re pleased to profile Susan Hatten, Chief Operating Officer, BrokerTech Ventures, the insurance industry’s first broker-led convening platform and accelerator program, and Senior Manager, Corporate Community Engagement at Holmes Murphy.
Susan, tell us about your path to insurance. What attracted you to the profession?
I certainly found my way to the insurance industry in an unconventional manner. Prior to joining Holmes Murphy in 2014, I led Business Development for a Marketing Communications & Advertising Agency for nearly a decade. I considered the opportunity in joining Holmes Murphy as a challenge in terms of learning a new industry, vernacular, and being able to bring a new lens to the world of insurance, which seemed desperately in need of an infusion of creativity and innovation.
Holmes Murphy has allowed me the opportunity to release my creative spirit and to apply it to the retail brokerage and insurance profession, in an entirely new way. I could have never imagined my path to Holmes Murphy would have opened the door to being a part of the team which created, deployed and is building the industry-changing company in BrokerTech Ventures. I feel very lucky, indeed.
