Jacobson Explores Pressing Industry Issues at the AAM Investment Conference

June 15, 2018

CHICAGO – The insurance industry is facing ground-breaking shifts that are overhauling the traditional business models. Existing trends and emerging disrupters are accelerating and irreversibly changing the industry and its workforce as we know it. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will discuss these topics as a panelist at the Asset Allocation & Management Company’s 2018 Investment Conference in Chicago.

“Developing trends and disruptors are challenging organizations to prepare their employees for the future of work,” said Milkint. “Insurers must maintain transparent communications and rethink development programs to keep employees engaged and prepared for their new evolving reality.”

The session titled “Around the Horn: Pressing Insurance Industry Issues Summary” is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on June 28, 2018, and will be moderated by Tim Senechalle of AAM. Milkint will be joined by eight other panelists: Jason Simkin of Simkin CPA, LLC.; Jeff Rieder of Ward Group; Chris Gudmastad of Advantus Capital; Peter Jachym of Weiss Partners; Stuart Fuller of Muzinich & Co.; and Mike McLaughlin, Stacy Crook, and Peter Wirtala of AAM.

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.
