The key to success in the Triglav Group is a combination of dedication to work, diligence and good cooperation with colleagues. Continuous education and training is another important component of success, which give me the confidence to make important decisions and grow as a person. The time I spend with my family is for me a source of new energy and enthusiasm.

The Triglav Group is certainly one of the leading employers in this region. It holds the leading position among insurance groups and operates in a promising industry, which offers every individual numerous possibilities for developing their potential.

My work requires constant upgrading of professional knowledge and therefore I always look forward to participating in training programmes in Slovenia and abroad. I also encourage my colleagues to pursue the same since their knowledge and experience in turn help me adopt important decisions.

In my current work it is also helpful that I have worked in several departments within Zavarovalnica Triglav. As a Triglav scholarship recipient and later as a trainee, I gained my first work experience in property insurance claims. I started out as a loss adjuster and gradually moved up to my current position of Executive Director of the Property Insurance Underwriting and Product Development Department. In June 2012 I returned to the division where I started and became the Executive Director of Non-Life Insurance Claims Division.

You must seize opportunities when they appear. Challenges are encouraging and motivating for me and my colleagues. My work brings a great number of professional challenges and opportunities for professional and personal growth. With highly motivated employees and effective team work, the success of the Triglav Group is guaranteed.
