Lisa Wolfe, QBE Services
Underwriting manager, property
Lisa Wolfe was inspired to join the insurance industry based on its learning opportunities and challenges. “We are fortunate to work in an industry that offers a career path that points in every direction: finance, marketing, operations, underwriting, claims, business development, risk management,” she says. “It is an industry that offers progression and possibilities, and presents the opportunity to support my analytical skills while combining negotiating capabilities and building and sustaining strong relationships.”
In addition to believing that her work makes a worthwhile contribution, challenges her to push boundaries and teaches her to embrace her limitations, Wolfe says she appreciates that it affords her the opportunity to empower others by serving as a coach and mentor. The industry has also nurtured her philanthropic nature, providing opportunities to volunteer with such organizations as the United Way, SickKids, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and her local food bank. Wolfe also participates in the Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade, the Ebony Women Insurance Network and the Property Casualty Underwriters Club.
