Being that it is an industry at the nexus of controlling risk and ensuring stability, the insurance industry seems like a staid sector. That being said, Fortune wondered what makes insurance CEOs tick. Fortune had an impromptu conversation with 16 of the 18 leading minds of the industry to learn more about them.
Yohannes Zewdie, 53 years old, is a management graduate of Addis Abeba University (AAU). He also obtained his master’s degree in management from the same university. Before joining Abay Insurance a year ago, he worked at Ethiopian Insurance Corporation for more than 27 years under different capacities. He was recently appointed as the CEO of Abay Insurance, which is one of the younger upstart insurers.
