Elena Edwards

General Manager, USA

Elena is dedicated to improving the way companies work because she cares about consumers. With over 30 years of leadership experience, she believes an organization has to be operating at peak performance to deliver the best customer experience possible. In her current role, Elena uses a collaborative, “roll-up-my-sleeves” approach to ensure we continue fulfilling our mission of helping people anytime, anywhere. This includes leading our commitment to an agile workplace, which provides a flexible way of working and helps eliminate unnecessary complexity so that we can be more nimble as we protect travelers.

Through her leadership positions in various GE businesses, Elena understands the importance of creating and maintaining ideal operating conditions. This background and expertise helped her lead strategic change in business operations and processes at Genworth Financial before joining the Allianz Partners team.

Elena believes in giving back to the communities where we work, live and play, and has volunteered on several nonprofit boards in the past, and is an active member on the Science Museum of Virginia Foundation Board. When Elena is out of the office, she enjoys running, water sports on the lake, and spending time with her husband and their twins.  Elena holds a Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Union College.
