Jacobson Explores Talent and Change Management at the Canadian Insurance Financial Forum

March 28, 2018

CHICAGO – Climate change, demographic shifts, economic corrections, regulatory and accounting developments, tectonic technology transformation and more are combining to impact virtually every aspect of the insurance industry. Finance, risk and actuarial professionals are increasingly finding themselves at the forefront of identifying, measuring, mitigating and leveraging the impacts of these dramatic changes. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will serve as a panelist discussing these topics at the Canadian Insurance Financial Forum in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.

“The insurance industry stands increasingly at the forefront of transformation,” said Milkint. “Emerging trends and developments continue to revolutionize the way the industry does business. It is critical that organizations rethink their current talent and change management in order to thrive in this new environment.”

The session, titled “Talent and Change Management in a Complex World,” is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on May 16, 2018. The session will be moderated by Ratan Ralliaram, partner at Deloitte. Milkint will serve as co-panelist with Geoff Shields, senior vice president of insurance for Strategic Resource Consultants.

As managing partner of Jacobson, Milkint oversees executive management engagements across all industry verticals for the firm’s executive search practice. Her insurance-specific labor-market expertise is highly sought after, and she is regularly called on to share her insights with various industry associations and publications. Milkint co-founded the Women’s Insurance Networking Group (WING), a platform for leading industry females to network and celebrate successes. In addition to her role with WING, Margaret serves as the U.S. committee chair for the Insurance Supper Club, which provides a network and forum for senior women in the insurance industry on a global basis.
