The winners were decided by Insurance Business, which examined how each of the individuals nominated had made a meaningful and tangible difference to the insurance sector and achieved specific outcomes in support of their peers and the industry.

49 women made this year’s Elite Women list, and were acknowledged as setting the standard for a new generation of female leaders in the UK insurance industry.

Simon Matson, CEO of Gallagher’s broking and underwriting business in Europe, Middle East and Asia said: “Huge congratulations to Claire and Abbhi – both are very worthy winners. It’s been a tough year for everyone juggling the challenges of COVID-19 and navigating a locked-down economy, and I continue to be highly impressed by the professionalism of our entire team, and individuals like Claire and Abbhi who go the extra mile to deliver for our employees and business.”
