In a recent interview with Archipelago, Christine Sullivan, SVP, Risk Control Leader – Sompo GRS, shared her thoughts on the current and future state of the insurance industry, what she finds most rewarding about her job and how she stays motivated.
“For me, the most rewarding part [of my job] is playing a role in ensuring that employees get home safely, that they get back to their families, and whatever it is they like to do,” she said.
She commented that she believes there is a misconception about risk control professionals, and that many equate their role with that of an inspector just there to find problems. “Within the risk control world, particularly at Sompo GRS, our role is really to be an advocate and to be part of our clients’ risk management safety team. We are much more focused on consulting versus compliance,” she said.
