As a senior product leader for the Bluestream platform, a cloud-based digital broker product, I am responsible for driving the expansion and delivery of Marsh's digital-first product offering across our business and consumer clients' portfolios.
I collaborate with a diverse and experienced team of colleagues, clients, and partners to solve complex problems in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment. I work closely with cross-functional teams across product, data, engineering, design, sales, partnerships, marketing, and other partner teams to design and deliver best-in-class digital insurance experiences that make our clients and end-users successful while advancing the platform.
I identify with all these characteristics, which is what initially motivated me to join Marsh. I lead my team with passion and humanity while working with clients and partners to find innovative solutions to challenging situations.
Marsh has a culture of learning that values being interested in what comes next. I love the quarterly learning festival that Marsh McLennan sponsors on a variety of subjects to keep you up to date with emerging trends. Working in Marsh Digital requires us to constantly push ourselves to be among the first to anticipate and understand innovations in the industry. I stay up to date by reading publications that are particular to my sector and learning about Web 3.0.
Since Marsh is a global company, a hybrid work environment allows me to focus and manage my week effectively. I can attend all my zoom meetings, meet with colleagues across the globe, and schedule in-person meetings to brainstorm or whiteboard solutions with my team and business partners. I think it is an excellent work-life integration.
I was born in Medellin, Colombia, and raised in Long Island, New York. In the 1990s, my parents decided to relocate to New York to escape the drug war at the time and pursue new opportunities. Having to start over from scratch in a foreign country, I witnessed my parents' sacrifices. By obtaining my bachelor's and master's degrees before anyone else in the family, I hoped to set an example for the rest of my family. These educational and life experiences helped me to become a passionate, caring, and entrepreneurial leader.
Since joining Marsh, I have had the freedom to be who I truly am and introduce my colleagues to Colombian culture and food. Fast-forward 20 years, Colombia is now among the most beautiful countries in the world. Due to its wonderful climate, it is home to some of the best forests, beaches, unique plant and animal species, ethnic cultures, and diverse food. I have a young daughter, and I am excited to teach her about her Colombian heritage.
