Elite Women 2018
Congratulations to our COO, Amanda Huang for being named one of 2018’s Elite Women in the Insurance Business America Magazine. The IBA said that “THE HUNDREDS of nominations made it clear that women have been making their voices heard in what was once a male-dominated field. While women continue to face unique challenges when building their careers, the insurance professionals on the following pages have proved that climbing to the upper echelons of the industry is no longer impossible. Twenty-two percent of this year’s Elite Women hold C-suite positions, while many others have taken on management-level roles at their respective companies. From the CEOs who built companies from the ground up to leaders in environmental insurance and insurtech, these 95 women are shaping a new future for insurance. Their stories will undoubtedly help to encourage and empower all women who strive to be the insurance industry’s next great leaders.”
As COO Amanda Huang brings together and maximizes each facet of Continental Underwriters, Inc. to achieve efficiency and excellence in providing insurance solutions for companies in the forest products industry. With a degree from James Madison University Amanda started in the industry and over the past 12 years, she has climbed the ladder quickly learning the ropes at one time or another holding every position in the company.
