Patriot Fixing the Insurance Industry

Please follow and like us:

judith-haddad-awardsInsurance has evolved over the years to be something that is not just available to consumers but essential for businesses and consumers to use on a regular basis. Whether it is a business ensuring they have the right worker’s comp insurance or a consumer filing a claim after a car crash, insurance really is something we deal with every day. That is why it is so important for insurance companies to have the right technology solutions making it easier for their employees and customers to access insurance information. This is where Patriot Technology Solutions comes in.

What is Patriot doing?

Under the direction of President and CIO, Judith Haddad, Patriot has been working in the insurance industry to build the technology necessary for the industry to progress. Haddad has many years working with insurance and as a CIO, so she is the perfect person to head up the team. When she started at Patriot, she had only a team of 8 people, but since then has grown significantly. They are certainly filling a need in the insurance industry where technology is needed in a specialized way but nobody has ever been willing to fulfill the role before. Patriot has received a number of awards under the leadership of Judith Haddad, including the Novarica 2014 Impact Award for their work on the legacy system replacement project.

judith-haddad-friendsI met Judith Haddad when we were at college together at Clark University. We have remained friends over the years and get together every once in a while. I’ve seen how much she has accomplished not only for herself but for other women as she has shattered the glass ceiling as a well-known and successful company executive. I’ve seen her take many positions, but currently, she is the President and CIO of Patriot Technology Solutions. In that position, she has really had a lot of success in providing extraordinary technology solutions in the insurance industry.

An advocate for women

Women have this problem where we constantly compare ourselves to one another. It means that no matter how successful we are in our chosen career paths, we still worry that we aren’t as good as our friend or neighbor even if they are doing completely different things than us. One of the things I love most about Judith Haddad is her ability to recognize a woman’s worth despite what she thinks of herself. Even though I’ve chosen to spend a lot of my life at home with children, she never once made me feel like that wasn’t as hard as her job or that it wasn’t as important as what she was doing. And when I was ready to get back into working, she helped me get caught back up and start my career. She is a firm believer that women can do whatever they want and are valuable no matter what choices they make.

Role of Judith Haddad as CIO

Please follow and like us:

judith-haddad-officeA Chief Information Officer, or CIO, was a pretty unnecessary job fifty years ago. Though technology was emerging quickly, it was nothing like it is today. At first, the title was given to the person responsible for ensuring all the cables were running smoothly and nothing went wrong with the equipment needed at the office. Now, however, the job is completely different and is a much more valued and necessary role at companies. The CIO at any major company today is responsible for not only ensuring the currently technology is working properly but that the company is up to date on current technology. This person is responsible for researching new and innovative technology options and determining whether or not those are worth using or if the fad will be over too quick to be worth spending thousands of dollars switching employees over.

Judith Haddad has worked as an executive in the insurance technology industry for over 20 years. Loaded with the experience and education to know what is going on and how to build upon current technology, she has been able to lead teams at Patriot to success. She has shown she is extremely innovative and has the ability to see problems and find answers to them. She also has extreme patience when working with and teaching other individuals. Thanks to Haddad, the insurance industry is no longer waiting for technology to catch up.

judith-haddad-office-matesThe insurance world is one we all deal with on a regular basis. It plays into many parts of our lives. Everything from life insurance to car insurance to workers compensation insurance are things we deal with on a regular basis, even if we don’t realize it. And as regulations get stricter on how these insurances work, it is getting more integrated into our everyday lives. That is why it is so important that technology in the insurance world is keeping up. Thanks to Judith Haddad, President and CIO at Patriot Technology Solutions, the insurance industry is being taken care of.

Providing technology solutions

Haddad’s goal in working at Patriot has always been to provide technology solutions to an industry that has been ignored for a long time. Even though the insurance industry itself has changed a lot over the last few years, the technology available hasn’t been able to keep up. The goal at Patriot has been to build technology options that make insurance easier for both the companies and end users. Whether you are an insurance company, a business buying insurance for employees, or a person trying to figure out what your insurance covers, these kinds of solutions are here to help you.

With Judith Haddad as the CIO, Patriot has been able to find a lot of success in building up the insurance industry. They have launched systems for Missouri Employers Mutual, launched Vikarin Solutions QuoteExpert Portal, and have worked to introduce and launch many other essential programs to various insurance companies.

Examples from an influential CIO

Please follow and like us:

Judith-haddad-awardEvery company is highly influenced by the people in their executive suite positions. Everything from the Chief Executive Officer to the Chief Financial Officer is important. These positions really affect how a company will run and where it will go in the future. One of the executive suite positions that is most important is the Chief Information Officer (CIO), responsible for all information technology that runs through the company.

In the past, this position has been very minimal and didn’t require a lot of extra work, but in a time when everything is run through technology, it is more important than ever to make sure we have qualified individuals filling those CIO positions. Judith Haddad of Patriot Technology Solutions is one of the most influential CIOs, and she isn’t going to be done anytime soon.

Judith-Haddad-award-functionWorking at Patriot National Solutions has been amazing. I have learned more about technology and the insurance industry than I ever realized there even was to learn, and I have been able to show off that learning in many of the projects I have worked on at the company. I have especially enjoyed work for and learning from Judith Haddad, President and CIO at Patriot.

Patience from Haddad

Judith Haddad is the CIO, so you would think she wouldn’t be very available to the employees at the company. It is actually the opposite of that. She has always been around to help me whenever I have questions or need anything, and I have been surprised at her level of involvement. She really wants to make sure the programs and technology we are creating will work well and will do exactly what the client wants it to do. She is also extremely patient with us as she helps teach us the things we need to know to provide excellent solutions instead of getting frustrated or upset with us. I’ve been very grateful to have her around to help teach me and build up our team.
