Angela Matthes started her career at Baloise Group when she was 15 ½ years old, where, after several leadership roles within the Group, for the last 8 years she was CEO of Baloise Life (Liechtenstein) AG. She has an MBA from the University of Rochester (NY) and an Executive Master in Consulting and Coaching for Change from INSEAD. 2014 is a milestone in her biography: She leaves her male identity behind and changes to the gender she has always felt to be her own. Looking back she can say, this step took a lot of courage, but also a lot of appreciation and empathy for the professional and personal environment around her. Seven years later, living her life as a woman is a matter of course and an affirming experience. Now she can rest? Not at all. With curiousity for the new and a boundless appetite to leave the comfort zone, Angela has left Baloise at the end of January 2021 to launch herself into independence, in search of the future of insurance and all she can learn along the way.
