Spotlight on influential women of Bermuda

Almost 40 women with prominent positions in the insurance and reinsurance sector in Bermuda have been featured in a special edition of the trade magazine Bermuda: Re+ILS.

In its 'Influential Women of Bermuda' edition, the magazine profiles 38 women in the insurance and reinsurance industry “who have smashed through the gender glass ceiling”.

The magazine asks them how they entered the industry, the challenges they have faced and what they still want to achieve.

Among those featured is Leila Medeiros, who is senior vice president and deputy director of Abir, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers. A further 15 members of Abir, who all hold executive positions at their respective companies, are also featured. The publication discusses the contribution the women make to their employers, and their value as role models and mentors.

“Abir members benefit enormously from these talented female executives. They include CEOs, CFOs, general counsels, chief actuaries and underwriting managers. We're glad these women are working in Bermuda. They'd be recognised as top talent and incredibly valuable to employers wherever they worked,” said Bradley Kading, Abir president and executive director.

“Leila Medeiros has worked with Abir since 2006. She's a terrific public policy leader who has made an invaluable contribution to Bermuda's insurance regulatory landscape in that time,” said Mr Kading.

“She enjoys talking to students and is a great example of a Bermudian guiding and mentoring young people interested in insurance careers.”
