HCI Group Board Observer Application
Hi, I am Carol Williams, CEO and Principal Consultant with Strategic Decision Solutions, based in Tallahassee, Florida.
My professional experience-as outlined below-includes strategic planning, tactical execution, and management decision-making processes (some good and some not-so-good) and has provided me with unique skillsets, perspective, and insights into the insurance industry.
The not-so-good experiences taught me how company culture, leadership mindset, and practices all play a role in determining whether an outcome will be successful. And while my varied, in-depth background as both a regulator and industry insider equip me to understand the business of HCI Group, my education and consulting have provided additional perspective on how other industries work and interact with stakeholders. Seeing how other companies govern themselves, make decisions, and execute-whether part of the insurance industry or not-gives me the insights to bring fresh ideas to HCI Group.
Thank you for considering my application to the HCI Group's Board Observer Program for the 2021-2022 cohort.

My multi-faceted insurance background combined with extensive Enterprise Risk Management and strategic planning experience can be tremendously valuable to your company's long-term success.
My adaptability, inquisitiveness, and eagerness to learn and apply those learnings-are some key attributes that HCI Group will find invaluable as my contribution to the Board Observer group. I enjoy being part of a larger group and learning from other people, recognizing that the best ideas and outcomes come from collaborative conversations.
Thank you for considering my application to HCI's Board Observer group!
