After gaining a BA (Hons) degree in Marketing with French at the University of Greenwich in 2000, Lara began her career in operational management of a travel agency and insurance call centre where she later went on to become the Managing Director.
Having developed a significant interest in the risk assessment element of the insurance journey, Lara moved on to run a Medical Screening operation in 2006 where she managed a 50-seat contact centre.
In January 2010, Lara joined Healix Risk Rating as the Business Development Manager where she is now a Director. Her focus remains the acquisition of new clients and the development of relationships with existing partners, on both a UK and global scale. In addition to clients within the travel industry, Lara is also responsible for developing the Risk Rating presence in the Health, Income Protection and Pet markets.
Lara played a pivotal role in the recent sale of Risk Rating to Verisk Analytics; the future of which looks incredibly bright.
