” Effective market development often requires a deep understanding of the region’s specific dynamics and the ability to tailor strategies accordingly “ – interview with Irma Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic, our new Group Market Developer.
Could you tell us a bit more about your new position at GrECo? What will be the main area of your focus?
Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic: Since September 1st, I have been responsible for Group Market Development in the SEE Region at the GrECo Group.
As a Market Developer, I will be identifying growth opportunities, developing market strategies, and expanding the company’s presence in the South-Eastern European region. This includes market research, partnership development, and strategic planning to drive business growth in the insurance and risk management sector.
What made you choose to become a part of the GrECo in the first place?
Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic: I had already established a strong relationship with GrECo, having worked for various international insurance companies in recent years. During this time, I gained very positive experiences both in terms of client relationships and interactions with company employees. Through this experience I also learned about GrECo’s strong presence in the insurance and risk management sector, its commitment to client satisfaction, and its innovative approach to addressing clients’ needs.
Which challenges do you expect in your new role?
Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic: I expect challenges in navigating regulatory differences across the SEE region, competition in the insurance market, adapting to evolving client needs and staying updated on industry trends and emerging risks. Effective market development often requires a deep understanding of the region’s specific dynamics and the ability to tailor strategies accordingly. However, I am confident that together with the respective teams we will rise to these challenges successfully.
Could you tell us a bit more about yourself outside of work? How do you like to spend your free time?
Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic: Given the opportunity, I like to travel because it gives me the opportunity to learn about other cultures and people. I also like to engage in outdoor sports activities and spend time with my family.
What do you like about the insurance and risk management industry, and what keeps you motivated?
Ibrahimpasic-Hadzic: I like the opportunity to help businesses protect themselves from unforeseen risks and contribute to financial stability. Our work involves problem-solving, analytical thinking, and continuous learning, which I find intellectually stimulating and motivating.

If carefully designed and managed, a captive is a tool in the risk manager’s toolbox for large companies that can help build resilience to future transformation risks as a result of climate change, amongst other things.
If you have followed the media recently, you are probably aware that the younger generation cares about the environment and their future, and that they are willing to go to the extreme to prove their point.
A third of the younger generations believe climate change is the biggest threat of our time, and over half believe they don’t have the power to do anything about it.
