Candace Steele

 Chief Compliance & Risk Officer

With a rewarding executive and senior leadership career characterized by rapid advancement, I am a C-suite executive and active committee member in the insurance sector, thriving in highly regulated environments and driving critical enterprise risk management and corporate & regulatory compliance agenda in high-growth insurance companies. I am an experienced member of risk and audit committees. I possess multi-jurisdictional experience and offer strategic advice and guidance to boards on matters relating to compliance, risk and operational efficiencies. I advocate transformational change, and readily take ownership of the turnaround of regulatory and compliance capabilities, securing board sponsorship for fundamental organizational rethinking. I play an integral role in the scaling and growth of companies through strategic acquisition, supporting due diligence and ensuring smooth post-acquisition integration. With a wealth of strategic, risk and operational knowledge, I enable key players to overcome regulatory challenges, strengthening relationships with regulators, mitigating detrimental fines and sanctions. I am always looking for smarter ways of working aimed at dramatically improving the customer experience, such as automation and a move to digital. Whether it is influencing policymakers, shaping corporate governance or responding to global crises, I facilitate critical decisions and safeguard continuity. I am always keen to connect with like-minded people and share best practice.
