We have some pretty exciting news to announce today, Metromilers. Our very own Carrie Dolan has been named 2018's "Most Influential Woman in Business" by the San Francisco Business Times. We've always known how inspirational of a woman Carrie was, and we are thrilled to see her recognized for her (many) accomplishments.
At Metromile, Carrie is leading the next phase of company growth, disrupting the insurance industry with pay-per-mile auto insurance and seeing first hand how an innovative financial services model that leverages technology and data can translate into a better experience for consumers. As CFO, she is responsible for overseeing accounting, financial planning and analysis, treasury, actuary services, and investor relations. Carrie's leadership impact extends outside of her team. She makes herself available to everyone in the company and works to improve communication and teamwork across the company. She also works to help everyone with finding their own career path and pushing us all to take more risks. In addition to her role as CFO, Carrie is committed to serving her community and supporting the advancement of women.
In honor of her win, we wanted to share some of the things Carrie has done that inspire us everyday. Carrie has decades of financial experience and a proven track record of scaling high-growth consumer brands, like Chevron, Charles Schwab, and Lending Club. Currently, Carrie is our CFO, responsible for overseeing accounting, financial planning and analysis, treasury, actuary services and investor relations. In addition to her professional successes, Carrie has received several industry accolades for her leadership and the impact she has made across the financial industry. In 2015, American Banker honored her as one of "The Most Powerful Women in Finance." During the same year, The Financial Women of San Francisco named Carrie the "Financial Woman of the Year" for her remarkable commitment to her profession, service to her community, and support for the advancement of women. In 2013, the San Francisco Business Times awarded Carrie the Bay Area CFO of the Year for Emerging Companies.
We hope you'll join us in congratulating Carrie on her win. Who are some other women who have inspired you? Interested in joining the Metromile team? Check out our PowerToFly page.
