Success in global insurance is dependent on many teams, functional areas and people. This year Axco want to recognise the diversity of people working within this field and to ensure all of those unsung heroes in your business and team get the recognition they deserve. They could be somebody who tirelessly thinks about the customer and makes new suggestions for improvement, or goes over and above to exceed customer expectations. They could be the actuary or risk controller who brings new ideas, is responsive and flexible and always goes that extra mile. Or the compliance professional, who no question is ever too much.
