Episode 15: Somita Yogi, Chief Data Officer

Published on: 3rd October, 2022

In the fourth episode of season three of Behind the Desk with Mark Thomas, I am joined by Somita Yogi, Chief Data Officer. She has recently left her role at Animal Friends and has an impressive career history, holding key leadership roles at the Post Office, Tui and SunGard.

Somita is a dynamic leader in the Insurtech space and has some brilliant insight and anecdotes on how you can evolve from being a hands-on technologist to a business leader. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and she has been a great personality to have on the podcast this season. In this episode we discuss her career so far as well as how she manages work life balance with two children, her thoughts on diversity and insurance, wider technology and how she sees the market developing over the coming years.
