New Life Insurance Focused Podcast Aims to Unpack Digital Transformation

Press Release

Philadelphia, USA, March 30, 2022 – Equisoft, a leading global digital solutions provider to the insurance and financial industry, proudly announced today the launch of a new podcast series for life insurance executives entitled “Life Accelerated”.

Hosted by esteemed insurance observer and commentator Anthony O’Donnell and presented in partnership with Insurance Innovation Reporter (IIR), this podcast series will tackle the insurance industry’s unique challenges and how technology and modernization can deliver solutions. Each episode will feature trends in innovation, C-suite insights into transformation and best practices taken from actual insurer experiences.

“There’s a race on to transform, and those who fall behind are standing to lose their ability to compete—or to be in the game at all,” commented Anthony O’Donnell, Executive Editor at IIR. “It’s a critical and urgent conversation, so we’ll be interviewing technology and business executives about their own transformation journeys: how they’re going, what our interviewees’ companies are investing in, what kind of capabilities they're developing and what kind of timeline they’re facing.”

Featuring life insurance executives from leading companies such as Ameritas, MassMutual, Mutual of Omaha, New York Life, Northwestern Mutual, and many more, each 30-45 minutes episode will be addressing the specific needs and challenges of insurers when it comes to understanding and adopting technology, and how they can use it to support their business growth.

“Our goal is to create a learning platform that life insurance executives can access whenever and wherever they want to see what their peers are doing, where the industry is going and go home with some solid takeaways,” said Jean Sabbagh, Marketing VP at Equisoft. “We’re proud and excited to bring another innovative initiative that shows our commitment to pushing the industry forward and to helping all stakeholders accelerate their growth.”

The Life Accelerated Podcast Series will be presented on a bi-weekly schedule starting April 13, 2022, and will be broadcasted on Spotify, Amazon Music, Google and Apple Podcast. The first episode will feature Richard Wiedenbeck, CTO of Ameritas. All listeners are welcome to sign up at equisoft.com/lifeaccelerated to be timely notified as new episodes become available.
