Port Louis, Mauritius Thursday 25th March 2021……Jubilee Insurance (Mauritius) CEO Pamela Bussier has been appointed as the new President of the Insurers Association of Mauritius, making her the first woman to ever hold that position.
As the President of the lobby group, she will be tasked with coordinating high level engagement between member insurance companies, government and insurance companies as well as between key stakeholders who play a critical role in the growth of insurance in Mauritius.
“I am immensely proud and humbled to be given the opportunity to lead a team of enthusiastic members who mean well for the insurance industry in Mauritius. I am looking forward to working with all members and stakeholders to deliver a robust roadmap that will result in a profitable and sustainable growth across all segments of the industry,” Pamela said.
