Our People

Anna Gunther, Columbia University
Willis Retail, New York Office

Why did you choose to start your career at Willis?

I was specifically drawn to the Graduate Program because of the training I would receive and the resources that would be available to me. As someone new to the insurance industry, I was interested in the rotational program as the best way to gain exposure to different roles before specializing. Through the interview process, it became clear to me that a career at Willis offered the balance of quantitative and qualitative work that I was looking for.

How would you describe the culture at Willis?

Willis has a very teamwork driven, client centric culture. Our clients come first, and this is clear at all levels of the organization. Everyone works together to produce the best possible results, utilizing local, national, and global resources. Willis is also driven by its Values, and because of this, there is a focus from the top on encouraging the development of each associate.

How would you describe your team and the people you work with?

My team is dedicated and committed. Even at the entry level, each person is given the opportunity to jump right in and have an impact. We operate at a fast pace, and each member is willing to put aside what he or she is doing when needed.

What is the most interesting project you have worked on at Willis so far?

I was asked to do an analysis of historical construction insurance programs in New York City. The team wanted me to draw conclusions regarding the effectiveness of various safety initiatives. It was an exciting project that influences the decisions made by our current clients. It was an incredible opportunity for me to structure such an analysis on my own and to present my findings to Willis clients in my first year with the company.
