Knowing Judith Haddad

Judith-Haddad-cat-with-glassesAll the way back in 1989, she started working at Commercial Union as an Assistant Vice President. That was where she really started her biggest developments in the insurance technology industry and started to do what she loved. From there, she continued to work as either an executive or adviser to many large insurance or technology businesses helping the insurance technology industry itself expand and grow more than ever.

That leads us to today where she works at Patriot Technology Solutions. She was recruited to work at Patriot in order to revamp the IT department. She started with just a few employees and dived right in. She has been persistent and hard working in a way that could only expand and stabilize a department that had previously looked as though it was going to stop working entirely. Now, Patriot works to help provide technology solutions to clients in the insurance industry, and she has been extremely successful in those endeavors.

Currently the President and CIO at Patriot Technology Solutions, Judith Haddad has been an extremely successful executive. She has worked for almost 30 years in the insurance technology industry and has been successful at every turn. Those who know her say she is a talented executive who is highly professional and extremely talented. Nobody who has worked with her has an unkind thing to say, as she has been able to teach and guide employees and businesses towards successful achievements. Here is how she got to where she is today.

My personal experience in the INSEAD program

Judith-Haddad-cig-lighterINSEAD has three campuses in France, Singapore, and Abu Dhabi in order to offer an exceptional education to many people of different origins. The school focuses on different people and cultures bringing together ideas in order to help transform lives and create a better understanding of other perspectives, which is extremely valuable in the business world. The school offers a variety of programs, including everything from MBAs to specialized master degrees to PhDs. In 1960, it opened its first campus in France which really pioneered the ability to give a rounded international business education.

After getting a bachelor’s degree and MBA, I had been working in my job at a bank when I realized I was going to need to get some more education if I was going to progress any further. I needed more education than I currently had, and I felt as though I had reached my stopping point. So, I looked into business programs and decided I should attend INSEAD, one of the top rated Business schools in the world. It was there that I met Judith Haddad who became not only a study-mate but an amazing example of leadership.

A role model Judith Haddad

Judith-Haddad-ace-cardA role model for my daughter

Since that time, I’ve always looked up to her and used her as an example for my daughter. Judy Haddad is strong and passionate with her work while simultaneously being generous and kind with everyone she works with. On top of that, she has excelled in her career and is currently the President and CIO of Patriot Technology Solutions. If there ever was a woman who could shatter the glass ceiling and prove women are just as capable as men, it was Judith. I hope my daughter grows up to be strong and passionate about her work, whatever it may be, and that she will always look to Judy and her career as an example of what women and leaders can accomplish if they work hard.

I have been friends with Judith Haddad since we worked together at Blue Cod Technologies. It has been a while since then, but we still reach out to each other when we have time and catch up on our lives and what we are doing. If Judith wasn’t already very impressive when I worked with her, she is even more impressive now. In fact, she is the role model for my daughter that I always wanted, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have her around enough for my daughter to actually look up to.

Examples from an influential CIO

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.

My experience working with Judith Haddad

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.
