Sydney-based insurance professional recognised as an industry elite performer



St Leonards, NSW (2 September 2020) A Sydney-based insurance professional has been recognised in a prestigious list of the Australian insurance industry’s foremost female leaders.

GT Insurance’s Angela Stevens has been included in Insurance Business magazine’s Elite Women in Insurance report, celebrating the 29 leading women who have used their skills and insights to shape Australia’s insurance industry.

For the past nine years, Stevens has served as national claims manager at GT Insurance, overseeing the company’s claims management in 10 branches across Australia and leading GT Insurance to win three awards for its claims service in the past two years. Drawing on 26 years of industry experience, Stevens manages customer and intermediary needs through continual review and improvement of claims processing, while also developing, reviewing and training branch claims personnel across the country. Thanks to her vast experience, Stevens was able to act quickly to support GT Insurance’s customers when the pandemic struck. “We are delivering on our core values, and our fair principle has also given our customers the safety and reassurance that we are meeting their needs,” she says. “We are also taking the time to talk to our customers and reassuring them that we are there for them in these di¬fficult times.

“While insurance is unarguably still a male-dominated field, especially at the executive level, it’s fair to say the sector is making significant progress in improving gender representation. A push for greater gender diversity and equality is happening in workplaces across the nation, and Diversity Australia has recognised the finance, banking and insurance services sector as a leader in implementing diversity policies,” says the Insurance Business team. “Although policies and programs are crucial to building a fairer and more inclusive industry, it’s the accomplished female role models who are invaluable in providing inspiration to younger women entering the field. This is where IB’s Elite Women in Insurance list comes in. Today, these 29 impressive female leaders are determining the industry’s strategic direction in the wake of COVID-19, paving its future path and inspiring those who choose to follow in their footsteps.”
