Three WTW women have been named as Insurance Business UK's Elite Women of the Year: Global Head of Inclusion and Diversity, Jenifer Denby; Account Executive, Abbie Conneely; and Managing Director, Global Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Leader, Amanda Scott.

"We're delighted that three of our colleagues - Jenifer Denby, Abbie Conneely and Amanda Scott - have been named Insurance Business UK's Elite Women of the Year. Congratulations!" commented WTW Head of Great Britain, John Ball. 

Shining brightly delivering for WTW clients

Insurance Business UK (IBUK) Elite Women are the UK's best female insurance professionals who have shone brightly by delivering for clients in a competitive environment and overcoming career obstacles to become leaders in the insurance industry.

The fifth edition of IBUK's Elite Women pays tribute to the challenges, excellence, and tenacity exhibited by this year's 61 inspirational female leaders breaking through high and strong barriers in a still male-dominated industry.

Insurance Business UK invited insurance professionals from across the region to nominate exceptional female leaders for the fifth Elite Women list.

Nominators were asked to provide details of their nominee’s achievements and initiatives over the past 12 months, including specific examples of their professional accomplishments and contributions to the industry. 

To select the winners, the IBUK team relied on the help of an independent and esteemed panel of judges.

Leaders of tomorrow

President of the Insurance Institute of Sussex and insurance specialist at Specialist Risk Group, Amy Green, served as one of the judges on the Elite Women 2023 panel and praised the high calibre of those awarded.  

“The last four years, in particular, have reflected the inequalities around diversity, race, disability, gender, and neurodiversity, and among the nominees, it was refreshing to see people who were really open about things like that, who either acknowledged their privilege, shared their experience or talked about a disability or illness,” says Amy. “Our leaders of tomorrow need to be able to address those issues.”
