Larissa Tosch joined Glatfelter Insurance Group in August 1999 as a COBOL developer responsible for Y2K updates. From there, she held leadership positions of increasing responsibility, including a position within the Insurance Company Operations business area, Application Director, Project Management Officer, and CIO.
As an Applications Director, Larissa managed nearly all applications at various times. Beginning in 2005, she was responsible for Core Insurance systems for Policy Rating and Issuance, Claims, Billing, and the Data Warehouse. In 2008, she assumed responsibility for the corporate systems including CRM, websites, portals, and imaging. In 2009, Larissa started Glatfelter’s PMO program and governance initiatives.

what is ita
ITA Mission Statement
The goal of the Insurance Technology Association is to provide members with opportunities to collaborate, educate, network, share, and use knowledge related to insurance technology. The ITA serves the insurance technology community as a resource and is dedicated to serving this specialized sector of the industry. Publications and educational programs created by the ITA are geared to professionals interested in or charged with evaluating, implementing, and marketing insurance-specific technology systems or services.
The next issue of ITA Pro magazine will be published in March, 2017. The cover story will focus on the winners of the 2017 ITA Bridge Awards, given annually by the ITA to honor an insurance carrier (or carriers) that have demonstrated an ability to "bridge the gap" between technology and business operations. We will also look at how smaller insurance carriers are dealing with the challenges of competing for customers with larger insurers that have huge technology stacks and even larger IT budgets. The issue also will include regular features,such as columns from George Grieve, the partners at Strategy Meets Action, and Russ Bostick of MVP Advisory Group. Launchpad, the newest department in the magazine and written by Jennifer Overhulse, covers the insurtech world.
