Alice Vaidyan crashed through several glass ceilings when she became the first woman to run an Indian state-owned insurer or reinsurer earlier this year. Having dusted herself off, she dispels the idea that women are not treated fairly in India and explains to Intelligent Insurer her plans to make GIC Re a top 10 global player.
Alice Vaidyan is used to achieving firsts in her life. She has already succeeded in managing a work-life balance that has allowed her career to prosper to the extent she became the first female managing director of any Indian insurer or reinsurer in life or non-life earlier this year.
Now, in her role as chairman-cum-managing director of the Indian state-owned reinsurer General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC Re), she has new targets in her sights.
She has been appointed into the role after a 32-year career in other government-owned entities, including GIC Re for the past eight years where she served as the general manager and chief financial officer. She will hold office until July 2019.
