About the Author

Randi Glazer
Randi Glazer

After getting her start in the insurance industry as a property package and inland marine underwriter, Randi Glazer spent the better part of three decades working in a variety of professional capacities as she continually adapted to a rapidly changing field. Now an underwriting consultant and an author, Glazer is one of the industry’s most in-demand professionals and is widely regarded as one of the most effective mentors to newcomers to the profession.

Given her status as a leading consultant and respected industry veteran, it is only natural that Glazer would be encouraged to put her valuable insights down on paper as the author of “Randi Glazer’s 12 Strategies for Surviving a Career in the Insurance Industry.” The author of a number of articles and books covering an incredibly broad range of subjects, Glazer’s most recent publication seeks to preserve the advice she received as an up-and-comer in the world of insurance and underwriting.

Recognizing the unfortunate lack of adequate mentors for newcomers to the profession, Glazer has taken it upon herself to serve in a something of a surrogate role through the frequent publication of articles and books. When Glazer came up in the industry, there was a greater degree of organizational stability and therefore more professionals willing and able to help guide those new to underwriting.

With the assistance of strong mentors throughout her early years as an underwriter, Glazer went on to enjoy tremendous professional success and ultimately moved into her current role as an author and underwriting consultant. Known for her ability to continually reinvent herself and her role within the insurance industry, Glazer spent several years working in international business and benefited from her years of experience doing reinsurance as well.

Drawing on her varied professional experience, Glazer’s written work frequently includes anecdotes used to reinforce a particular concept or idea she has advanced. Through her personal storytelling that details the many trying circumstances she has encountered over the years, Glazer has developed the unique ability to entertain her readers while also providing insightful advice on how to deal with the difficult issues that are sure to arise during a lengthy career in just about any industry.

With specific philosophies developed over the course of decades of professional experience, Glazer often shares strategies that can be universally applied or adapted to suit a wide range of circumstances in the most effective manner possible. This is especially the case when the subject turns to many traditional business settings, particularly since Glazer is exceptionally adept at dealing with office politics along with the many other issues that tend to come up in organizations that continue to utilize an outdated leadership structure that results in an untenable amount of inefficiency in daily operations.

As an author and a consultant, Glazer has continued to exert her influence over the insurance industry and has helped many professionals become more adept at navigating an increasingly difficult career path. While the mentors that aided Glazer early in her career have long since retired, the extensive work of their mentee has ensured that their expert insights continue to guide newcomers to the profession. In passing on this wisdom, Glazer has sharpened and adapted their message and philosophy to better reflect the current state of the industry and has worked diligently to ensure that this advice reaches as many individuals as possible through the frequent publication of articles and books.
