Allianz Life Insurance Co. of North America




In September, Jasmine Jirele took the reins as CEO of Allianz Life, the Minneapolis-based division of German financial services firm Allianz SE. She came to the position after a stint at Wells Fargo, but she’s no stranger to Allianz, having held executive roles there in the past. The first female CEO to lead the insurer, Jirele sees opportunity for the business community to address long-standing inequity issues in the Twin Cities and across the nation: “I think we need to move faster in addressing the systemic challenges with equity and inclusion to make our market an attractive place to work and live.”
