BOSTON, September 25, 2017 — Xceedance a global provider of insurance consulting and managed services, technology and data sciences, is pleased to announce Monalisa Samal has been inducted into the 2017 class of the “Influential Women in Re/Insurance” program, sponsored by Intelligent Insurer.
Samal, vice president of the catastrophe and exposure management unit at Xceedance, is recognized in the fourth annual “Influential Women in Re/Insurance” edition.

“I’m very happy to be included in this outstanding group and to be recognized for doing what I love,” said Samal. “Everyone has their own day-to-day approach to work, and it’s often easy to be heads down on projects and not stop to think about the bigger picture. I always try to have the end-result in mind, and this helps me stay focused on both daily priorities and strategic outcomes.”
As one of the first leadership hires, Samal joined Xceedance just two months after the company’s launch in 2013. She oversees CAT modeling and exposure management solutions and services, and her team supports the business operations of clients across North America, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia. Samal has more than 10 years of experience in the areas of individual risk-based pricing, overall portfolio optimization and management, model validation, and client and operations management. She has assisted in the application of models in risk decision making, designed custom solutions for clients, and managed substantial teams of analysts.
“Monalisa fully deserves this industry recognition,” said Arun Balakrishnan, CEO of Xceedance. “She is creative, tireless and an extraordinary team leader — truly exemplifying the role of an influential and proficient executive in our industry. I often get feedback about the value that Monalisa and her team bring to our clients.
