Dieter Pscheidl, Head of European Affairs and ESG
I am the third generation of my family to work in the insurance industry. Contrary to the usual stereotype, insurance is very multi-faceted because it covers all areas of life and business. Since 2016, I have been managing this department, which acts as the communication interface between VIG and Brussels. Our range of topics covers many areas of the company, from sales and risk management to product lines. This makes the job varied and challenging at the same time.
