BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

2019 Break Out Awards, Midwest: Minda Rossman

Minda Rossman


Service team lead

Origami Risk LLC

San Francisco

Age: 41

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 landed in the benefits administration space working for Hewitt Associates. 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 remaining 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’ll continue to become 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 in high school as a part-time job, and people’s typical reactions when you mention insurance is “oh, boring.” At that point in time, I thought so, too. 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 played basketball and softball in college. I’m still trying to relive 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 I’m very much a pen-to-paper type of note taker.

What is your favorite meal?

My husband’s spaghetti. It’s delicious.
