"I am super excited to join the team of Compensa Life Vienna Insurance Group SE as Head of Legal and Compliance for the Lithuanian Branch," commented Kuncyte. "As the Lithuanian Branch is in its active development and expansion stage, it is a very interesting stage for compliance and legal function to keep pace with business in the face of all new market trends and especially insurance going green tendencies. It all requires a lawyer to be very inventive, business-driven, and able to take out-of-the-box decisions every single day."
