At Assurant, Jody Gunderson is the senior vice president of strategic account management across its Global Home business. She collaborates closely with clients, including leading senior banking executives in the global housing finance industry. In response to the industry’s need to hasten all business practices, Gunderson has been instrumental in executing tight onboarding deadlines for the company’s top Global Home clients while ensuring strong customer relations.
Gunderson’s leadership was crucial in the formation of the Global Home division, a daunting process that required vision to streamline and integrate product lines and the leadership to motivate teams to effectively work together.
Gunderson’s extensive industry experience paired with her desire to understand all aspects of the industry has driven her efforts to make Assurant Global Home a trusted partner among its clients. Within this culture, she challenges the team to provide clients with a unique and customized experience, an important factor in Assurant’s success as a leader in lender-placed insurance.
During the last 12 months, Gunderson has also been vital in introducing areas of opportunity for Assurant Global Home’s clients, creating a single-source provider environment for the company’s clients. Gunderson works daily to ensure that each Global Home client has a personalized, not transactional, experience that is rooted in Assurant’s strong foundation of expertise and compliance. She also serves as the primary leader of Assurant’s Global Home Client Advisory Board, where client influencers and other leaders meet to share ideas and discuss best practices, regulatory and compliance issues impacting the mortgage industry.
