VP, Data Analytics and Strategy, Lincoln Financial Group
In my current role as Vice President of Data Analytics and Strategy for the Insurance Solutions division of Lincoln Financial Group, I guide business strategy, lead strategic transformation, and leverage data analytics capabilities to drive profitable growth.
CONTINUOUS LEARNER Our environment is always changing – I focus my development accordingly. I expect to achieve my MBA and Leadership Initiative Designation from the UNC Kenan Flagler Business School in mid-2019. I enjoy reading and exploring new areas (e.g. behavior economics). Additionally, I have acquired extensive experience across a variety of business and technical roles as a credentialed Actuary and graduate of Lincoln’s Actuarial Development Program.
ADAPTABLE ACHIEVER Knowledge and experience are most valuable when they are effectively applied to take advantage of new opportunities. While my expertise is centered around Strategy, Finance, and Risk Management, some of my most rewarding achievements have been in Technology, Operations, and Supplier Management.
DILIGENT LEADER I believe in leading to lead – the best measure of leadership is the depth and breadth of a leader’s following. My greatest source of pride is the talented people around me.
In my experience, the following aspects differentiate my skills and performance: • I attract, engage, and enable great people to do great things. • I generate big ideas, making connections and identifying opportunities that are otherwise missed. • I get things done – directly and indirectly – no matter the challenge. • I do what is best for the enterprise, and I align people behind it. • I make complex topics understandable and relatable at various levels of the organization. • I am resilient and adaptable in driving sustainable change. • I champion diversity and inclusion and get results.
