WALNUT CREEK (June 14, 2013) – The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) is pleased to announce that Pina Albo has been awarded the inaugural Women in Insurance Luminary Leadership Award. This special recognition was presented to Ms. Albo at the IICF Women in Insurance Global Conference Dinner on June 13, 2013.

The IICF Women in Insurance Luminary Leadership Award recognizes an individual for their selfless leadership and significant contributions to the development of the future leaders, particularly women, in their own organizations as well as the broader insurance industry.

Ms. Albo is currently the President of the Reinsurance Division of Munich Reinsurance America and served as a member of the IICF Board of Governors from 2010-2012. Her previous recognitions include being named the Insurance Woman of the Year by the Association of Professional Insurance Women (APIW) in 2011 and receiving the 2012 YWCA Tribute to Women Award.

"A luminary leader is a person of prominence that has not only achieved success in her field but is also an inspiration to others," said Bill Ross, Chief Executive Officer of the IICF. "Pina has encouraged and inspired all of us. It is a privilege and my honor to have presented this award to such a dynamic leader."
