HW 2019 Insider: Chris Diedrich

Chief Administrative Officer, Covered Insurance

Chris Diedrich is a change agent, steward, manager, and leader wrapped in one. The work Diedrich does behind the scenes at Covered is invaluable.

F2As the chief administrative officer of a rapidly growing startup, now scale-up, Diedrich is the glue that keeps the company on track. His exceptional commitment to building a world-class business, critical eye for detail and mission-driven personality have accelerated the company to new heights. The last 12 months have been an intense period of growth for Covered. Diedrich has played a critical role in guiding the company through these changes. For example, he led the hiring process for Covered during a time of dramatic scaling, bringing the number of employees from six to 18 in the past year, with a goal of reaching 50 by year-end. He also led account management for one of Covered’s enterprise partners, Realty ONE Group, which boasts more than 11,000 real estate agents.

“To be successful requires diligent prioritization, scheduling and tracking of the various departmental requirements with a focus on compliance and team execution. Putting in place a great team to which I can delegate tasks and know they’ll be thoroughly completed allows me to focus on the things that matter most. I find a mix of structured meetings and informal one-on-one check-ins allows me to keep the business moving forward.”
