Joanne Safo, Global programme director and head of technology, Munich Re Digital Partners
Two and a half years ago, Joanne Safo helped to set up Munich Re Digital Partners, a startup unit established to support insurtech firms and others who are inventing new ways of doing insurance. She has since progressed to overseeing the unit’s global project delivery, including expansion into new regions, including the Middle East and in Australia. More recently, Safo was tasked with heading the global technology function for the unit and is now playing a crucial role in strengthening the unit’s position as an industry disruptor.
Safo believes effective integration of technology and data in insurance work requires a strong commitment to diversity of workforce, as it is crucial to being able to bring in talent from outside the industry in order to fill emerging needs and roles. Safo often speaks at events and contributes articles on this topic.
