Elena Edwards

General Manager, 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. In her current role, she uses a collaborative, “roll-up-my sleeves” approach to ensure we continue fulfilling our mission of helping people anytime, anywhere. This includes leading our commitment to being agile, which is a flexible way of working that eliminates unnecessary complexity and allows us to be more nimble as we protect travelers.

Through her leadership positions in various GE businesses, as well as her degrees in engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Union College, Elena understands the importance of creating and maintaining ideal operating conditions. This background and expertise helped her lead strategic changes in business operations and processes Genworth before joining the Allianz Partners team.

She believes in giving back to the communities where we work, live and play, and she has volunteered on several nonprofit boards, including The Lynchburg College Board of Trustees, Amazement Square Children’s Museum, and Girls on the Run of Central Virginia. Currently, she is 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 two kids—who are twins!
