Allianz - Elena Edwards

Elena Edwards

Chief Executive Officer, USA

Elena is dedicated to improving the way companies work because she cares about consumers. With over 30 years of leadership experience, she believes an organization has to be operating at peak performance to deliver the best customer experience possible. As CEO, Elena uses a collaborative approach to ensure we continue offering products and services that meet the needs of our partners and customers. This includes championing our commitment to an agile workplace, so that our teams can be more nimble as we protect travelers.

Elena joined the Allianz Partners team in 2019 as General Manager for the US business, providing executive leadership on strategy, prioritization and execution for the US business unit.  In prior leadership positions in various GE businesses, Elena came to understand the importance of creating and maintaining ideal operating conditions with a strong focus on customer service. That background and expertise helped her lead strategic change in business operations and processes at Genworth Financial.

Elena believes in giving back to the communities where we work, live and play, and has volunteered on several nonprofit boards in the past. She is currently an active member on the Science Museum of Virginia Foundation Board. When Elena is out of the office, she enjoys running, water sports on the lake, and spending time with her husband and their twins. Elena holds a Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Union College.
