Chubb’s Tomlinson Named ‘Insurance Woman of the Year’

The Association of Professional Insurance Women Inc. (APIW) has selected Chubb Group Executive Vice President Janice Tomlinson as its “Insurance Woman of the Year.”

Tomlinson, who has been employed by Chubb since 1973, serves as international field operations manager at the insurer. She is responsible for profit and loss on a $2.9 billion book of business in 28 countries and oversees more than 50 offices and 2,500 employees. Prior to her current position, Tomlinson was the chairman and president of Chubb’s Canadian business operations from 1995 to 2003.

The annual APIW Insurance Woman of the Year Award, first presented in 1976, recognizes an exceptional woman who has achieved prominence in her profession and has made significant contributions to the insurance industry.

APIW said Tomlinson has demonstrated her support for women’s issues and the insurance industry, by participating as an active member in the New Jersey International Women’s Forum, APIW and the American Association of University Women. She has been honored as one of the “New Jersey’s Best 50 Women in Business” by NJ Biz, “Women Worth Watching” for Profiles in Diversity and was named to the Business Insurance Women Worth Watching list in 2000.

A cocktail reception and award ceremony will be held in Tomlinson’s honor in June in New York
