Service team lead
Origami Risk LLC
Minda Rossman didn't have a clear picture of what she wanted to do after graduating from Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois, with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Business Administration, but she is a member of Hewitt Associates' benefits administration space working. She is now the service team lead for Chicago-based risk management technology firm Origami Risk LLC.
What is the No. 1 concern in your specialty?
The number one concern for any organization is data security. Specifically in the (third-party administrator) space, it's still competitive and keeping up with all the rules and regulations and being a good steward of their clients' data.
How do you see your job changing over the next 10 years?
I think we will continue to be more and more data driven… using that data to automate the decision-making process.
What surprised you about the insurance industry?
I worked at a small insurance agency when I was a high school as a part-time job, and people's typical reactions when you mention insurance is "oh, boring." But once you get into it, it's really quite complex and interesting. Few people realize all of the challenges associated with administering and managing a work comp program.
What is something most people don't know about you? I'm still trying to release my glory days by playing slow-pitch softball today.
What is your favorite app or gadget?
My most recent favorite is an app called Rocketbook. It is a reusable notebook that you can scan handwritten notes to PDF format, because it is very much a pen-to-paper type or note taker.
What is your favorite meal?
My husband's spaghetti. It's delicious.
