After starting his career in commercial insurance sales, Will Lehman accepted a risk management position in Bloomington, Ind., for the global privately held company Cook Group and has become heavily involved within the organization, local community and the risk management industry.
“The Networks Program was critical in providing the training, resources and connections that have allowed me to succeed in the insurance and risk management industry,” said Lehman, who earned a degree in insurance and risk management. “I was aware that the program is an incredible professional development and training opportunity for business students. This is an opportunity typical students do not have access to and truly builds leadership skills.”
Networks’ professional development opportunities have proven to be invaluable for Lehman.
“The program develops students in ways you don’t receive by simply going to class,” he said. “While many students will learn these skills throughout their time in the professional workforce, having this education and training as an undergraduate provides a tremendous advantage.”
