Sabrina Hart, EVP and chief underwriting officer, global corporate in North America, Zurich NA, didn't plan to have a career in insurance. But the choices she's made have been good ones for her and Zurich. Hart's initiatives have been credited with generating new business, boosting revenue and establishing Zurich's Women's Innovative Network, a program dedicated mentoring and career development for women managers and professionals.

Hart's career, which runs deep in health care, was not predictable in college at the University of North Carolina, where she earned her Bachelor's in math in 1985. Her plan was to major in accounting and work at a Big Six firm. "I thought wanted I to be a partner by the time I was 30, so I started that route. Then I got some good counseling and thought I should major in something I just love and find a career where that would be needed. So I changed my major to math." Throughout college, Hart worked at a hospital, which began her insurance journey. "After graduating, my experience in health care and my major in math struck the HR department's interest at Virginia Insurance Reciprocal," a provider of professional liability, workers' compensation and other lines of business to the health care industry.
