ACORD & Alchemy Crew Recognize Women Leaders in Insurance Technology for Driving Change through Collaboration, Sustainability & Inclusion, and Global Ecosystem-Building
Pearl River, N.Y., December 13, 2022 – ACORD, the global standards-setting body for the insurance industry, today announced its annual InsurTech Leaders list developed in conjunction with Alchemy Crew, whose co-founder & CEO Sabine VanderLinden has herself been a perennial member of ACORD’s list.
ACORD is proud to dedicate its 2022 Top InsurTech Leaders List exclusively to women leaders in insurance technology. With a groundbreaking congressional report recently finding significant levels of gender disparity in the industry, it is essential to recognize and honor the powerful contributions of women in insurance.
“As InsurTech investors and customers become more discerning, tangible, near-term benefits have become more critical,” said Bill Pieroni, President & CEO of ACORD. “This group of leaders has demonstrated not only remarkable vision, but the ability to execute and turn that vision into results. They stand out as pioneers of transformation and key figures driving progress in the insurance technology community.”
In evaluating InsurTech leaders, ACORD and Alchemy Crew identified several key focus areas driving the transformation of the industry over the past year:
- Collaboration & Cooperation: Working together is central to those InsurTechs that seek to effect change across the industry. These leaders recognize that the effective path to transformative, sustainable innovation lies in collaboration with all types of industry stakeholders, leveraging the valuable perspectives offered by differing levels of scale and areas of expertise. They are focused on ensuring that business needs inform new technology, and vice versa.
- Sustainability & Inclusivity: As the insurance industry continues to undergo digital transformation, insurers must consider how to leverage this change to secure a positive future for those it serves. Leaders in this space are making the industry more accessible and equitable for potential customers and colleagues alike, as well as reimagining traditional processes to be more eco-friendly and sustainable for generations to come.
- Global Ecosystem Builders: With robust networks, interconnected systems, and global digitalization now necessities for efficiency and growth, stakeholders who embrace these developments are truly accelerating the pace of change in the industry. These ecosystem-conscious leaders have even gleaned valuable lessons from beyond the insurance industry, reaching to new and diverse sources of experience and expertise.
