Alicia Montoya's profile


Alicia Montoya

Strategy & Operations VP

Swiss Re


I'm a multicultural professional with a passion for innovation and sustainability. But more than that, I'm a global citizen, avid traveller and economist / anthropologist who feels at home in most places.

My road towards becoming a caring, responsible consumer started with Naomi Klein's "No logo" (everything you should know about how your clothes are produced) and continued with Felicity Lawrence's "Not on the Label" (same for the food industry). I firmly believe we each have the power to change the world and frequently bug my friends, colleagues and anybody else I meet about the link between personal choices and the consequences these have on a macro level. We are the world's problems and we are the world's solutions. Personal responsibility and the courage to act on it is all we need.
