Radey’s Travis Miller Participates in FSU Panels

travis-millerFirm president Travis Miller recently participated in panel discussions with other insurance industry officials at the Florida State University’s College of Business. Travis spoke to students taking the Risk Management & Insurance Program’s Introduction to Risk Management and Insurance course. Later, Travis and the other panelists spoke to students in the Risk in Business and Society course.

In addition to Travis, the panelists included:

  • Angela Borthwick – Sales & Marketing Manager, Zenith Insurance Company
  • David Brooks – Chief Risk Officer, XL Insurance
  • Jeff Grady – President and CEO, FAIA
  • Bruce McReadie – American PEO Insurers, Inc.
  • Larry Patrick – Retired President, Auto Club South Insurance Company
  • Pat Maroney – Professor Emeritus, Florida State University College of Business
  • Scott Clark – Risk and Benefits Officer, Miami-Dade County School Board

The panel discussed the diverse opportunities for students majoring in Risk Management & Insurance. Many students enter the College of Business seeking generally to major in areas such as accounting, finance or marketing, but they haven’t yet developed a sense of the particular industries in which they want to work. The panelists informed the students how the insurance industry encompasses most, if not all, of the disciplines taught in the College of Business. The panelists represented wide ranging aspects of the insurance business, from production to underwriting and risk management, to law, public sector opportunities and academia.

As perhaps the most rewarding part of the presentations, students had opportunities to ask questions of the panelists collectively and individually. A large number of students asked insightful questions about specific areas of the insurance business that interested them.
