SAN DIEGO, November 1, 2019 Kristin Guthrie, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Customer Experience.— Kristin Guthrie, senior vice president of enterprise customer experience at ICW Group Insurance Companies, a leading group of property and casualty carriers, was selected as one of Digital Insurance’s Women in Insurance Leadership 2019 honorees.

The Women in Insurance Leadership award recognizes innovative contributions women executives are making in all areas of the insurance industry.

Guthrie oversees ICW Group’s market research, marketing, customer journey mapping and value creation using Six Sigma methodology to generate customer-centric process improvements. She’s also responsible for integrating customer experience advocacy into the company’s corporate culture.

“ICW Group has a reputation for being a highly customer-centric organization, and Kristin continues to bring us to the next level in this area,” said Kevin Prior, president and chief executive officer for ICW Group. “Her passion for elevating the experiences our customers have with our company is a key factor in our continuing growth and success.”
