Senior Food Chemistry Analyst, Verisk 3E

Elena will go the extra mile to ensure the accuracy of her work and make sure her non-science colleagues understand the “why” of the chemistry. She also gives her time unreservedly—and creatively—to show appreciation of her colleagues and contribute to Verisk’s awareness-building initiatives. For instance, she spent many hours of her time planning, filming, and editing a 60-minute documentary video celebrating the diversity of her female colleagues in the Bethesda office for Verisk’s celebration of International Women’s Day.

VCAs-2021-Bill-Kennedy-600x400.jpg
Senior Claims Consultant, ISO Claims

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Bill has set the standard of caring for his team members and customers. His natural empathy and lead-from-the-front attitude contributed significantly to Verisk’s ability to respond to clients during the busiest catastrophe year the company has faced thus far. As an Army veteran, Bill is active in Verisk’s Veteran and Military Service Network. He and his spouse help organizations that rescue missing and injured pets and assist victims of domestic violence.

VCAs-2021-Larry-Maijer-600x400.jpg
National Account Customer Advocate, ISO Underwriting

Larry has been the rock of his team as many new members joined it. He worked through transitions, addressed issues not ordinarily assigned to him, and won strategic sales opportunities, keeping the team on track to achieve its objectives. Innovation comes naturally to Larry, as he frequently develops creative solutions to challenges and collaborates with teammates to design the best outcome possible. Outside of work, Larry is involved in many charity events and regularly volunteers as a chaplain at the local hospital.

VCAs-2021-Varsha-Sethia600X400.jpg
Director, Fintellix

While COVID-19 swept through India, Varsha led an initiative that regularly contacted each employee in Bangalore and Mumbai to ensure everyone had the resources they needed and felt a personal connection with the team. She and her two associates made an astonishing 8,000 one-on-one calls over five quarters—all while Varsha was simultaneously delivering against many day-to-day responsibilities, business challenges, and ever-changing dynamics in her location. Once vaccines were readily available, she helped employees sign up and enroll for vaccines near their residences.

VCAs-2021-Surinder-Verma-600x400.jpg
Senior Director, ISO Operations

Surinder always has sharp, insightful contributions and makes his complex, sophisticated statistical analyses understandable and actionable. This year, outside of his scope entirely, Surinder helped secure a major contract between India’s National Disaster Management Authority and AIR, which doesn’t have a presence in Delhi. Despite being an employee of Verisk’s insurance businesses, Surinder accepted the role of point of contact for the project and shepherded the deal, making many trips to the NDMA office even as a devastating wave of COVID hit the area.

VCAs-2021-Hathairat-Wittayapusagul-600x400.jpg
Senior Data Analyst, Wood Mackenzie

Hathairat’s tirelessness in pursuit of LGBT+ inclusion and belonging in the APAC region, both at Verisk and the wider community, is an inspiration. In recent years, she’s almost single-handedly led Verisk’s Pride efforts (as part of the Verisk Pride Network for LGBTQ+ employees and their allies) in the APAC region, championing publicly and influencing quietly on engagement in our offices, raising awareness, and effecting policy changes. She was instrumental in equalizing the benefits package for LGBT+ employees in Singapore, raising Verisk’s profile as an employer of choice in Singapore while positively impacting the lives of LGBT+ professionals.
