In early May 2019, U.S. Risk brought Sera Chalayan on board to join the ArmorPark team as an underwriter. Here’s a brief story of what led Sera to us!
After graduating from university, Sera Chalayan began her career as a banker. She soon transitioned to insurance, first working in wholesale brokerage and then moving to an admitted carrier, where she spent the majority of her early insurance career. During those years, she worked in customer service, account management, human resources, marketing, underwriting, and sales. In addition, she served as president of the Emerging Insurance Professionals’ Orange County chapter and as a member of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s associate board.
Then, during 2016 and 2017, Sera spent 15 months in the Czech Republic earning her MBA. In January 2018 she resumed her insurance career on the retail side as Area Vice President at Gallagher, where her sales focus was on non-profits and parking operators. The way we see it, this was all excellent preparation for her becoming part of U.S. Risk and ArmorPark.
Welcome to ArmorPark, Sera!
