Driving change for herself and others has been a key theme in Caroline’s . “I am motivated by progress,” she confides. “While I have always worked for Euler Hermes, I have constantly been involved in transforming the company. One of the great joys of my career has been helping to build each new version of Euler Hermes.”
Caroline fondly recalls helping build the Group Market Management Commercial and Distribution division. “I was part of a huge transformation within Euler Hermes,” she explains. “We were helping consolidate the Group through the OneEulerHermes project – getting all our regions to work together and move towards the same goal by defining a common underwriting stance and common products. It was a great opportunity to interact with a range of diverse people from different markets, and create a community based on trust and collaboration that would support the company’s growth.”
Caroline also thrills at bringing change to others by boosting her colleagues’ careers. She is grateful to have had wonderful role models, and is keen to pass on her good fortune by mentoring others. “I try to help people find their next role, encouraging them to evolve within the company. At Euler Hermes, there is always room to grow; you just need to be willing to take some risks and step outside your comfort zone. There is always an opportunity, whoever you are and whatever your background.”
Moving from role to role within Euler Hermes has given Caroline the chance to work with a diverse cast of colleagues.
“I’m thankful for my time spent abroad,” she says. “It prepared me for a job where collaboration with people across continents and cultures is the norm. I’ve come to expect a range of perspectives and diverse characters at Euler Hermes; it’s a true meeting point for those who are, or wish to be, part of a world where diversity is foundational.”
