Episode 21: Graeme Howard, previous Chief Information and Security Officer at Covéa Insurance

Published on: 30th October, 2023

Welcome to Episode 21, Season 3 of the Behind the Desk Podcast! Join me as I chat with Graeme Howard, who has recently left his role as CTIO at Covéa Insurance in the UK, to work on some short-term engagements as a non-exec.

In this episode, we really find out why Graeme isn't your typical insurance CIO with a typical background. Talking us through his thoughts and history he shares some invaluable lessons about resilience, leading high-performing teams, and simply what is possible in a sector like insurance when you look outside of the industry for some inspiration. There are some brilliant stories in this episode, and I personally learned a lot from chatting with him and I hope you do too. Let’s get behind the desk with Graeme.
