For 23 years the LA Business Journal has hosted the Los Angeles Business Journal Women’s Summit to bring together influential women who are making a positive impact in the Los Angeles business community. In an effort to honor the outstanding achievements of women in business throughout Los Angeles County, the best and the brightest were nominated to receive awards in six different prestigious categories. We are proud to announce that Giulia Volini, our West Coast Region Business Developer, received the high honor of being nominated.
Winners and finalists will be announced at the summit on May 23rd in the following categories:
- Business Owner/CEO of the Year
- Executive of the Year
- Rising Star
- Philanthropist of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Corporate Advocate
Joining some of the most established and innovative women in business, Ms. Volini is responsible for expanding a fast growing Chicago-based insurance and risk management firm to the West Coast. Ms. Volini’s dedication towards disrupting the status quo in the insurance industry is amplified by her drive to attract and cultivate young talent.
“Giulia is a firm believer that people with diverse, entrepreneurial backgrounds create the culture for change and innovation to an industry that desperately need it,” Shanon Marks, President MU/DAI.
In 2015, Ms. Volini accepted the task of expanding the Chicago-based Wolf Point Advisors to the West Coast, in hopes of bringing the Wolf Point Advisors philosophy to a new region. Taking a personalized approach for companies looking to protect their business, Ms. Volini’s philosophy is that “anyone can be a client,” which is a big reason why she has made such a splash in the Los Angeles marketplace.
In addition to expanding the client base in the West Coast, Ms. Volini has been tasked with building the office from the ground up, hiring leaders who believe in the Wolf Point Advisors culture and philosophy. With a focus on attracting the best and the brightest talent in the market, she anticipates ground-breaking growth throughout the greater Los Angeles area and beyond.
“I would describe Giulia as the “culture glue” that binds our rapidly growing company together,” Geno Mattioda, Co-CEO/Co-Founder, Wolf Point Advisors
“When we meet with new business owners, they are blown away by the Wolf Point Advisors dedication to service,” says Ms. Volini. “The response in the Los Angeles market shows me how much opportunity there is in this market, just by going above and beyond for our customers.” Excited to present a form of business protection that is also dedicated to customer service, her work and nomination have proven that providing transparency, guidance, and attentiveness to her clients is the successful foundation from which she will build and grow.
“I cannot say enough great things about her commitment to the service of her clients. She is more than just an insurance broker because she focuses on being a connector for her clients,” Joe Coghill, CEO, American Road Maintenance.
With Giulia’s dedication and commitment to growing the Wolf Point Advisors brand and impact in the West Coast, we can’t be more proud of her achievements, including this nomination, and supportive of her goals. This event will provide Giulia with the incredible opportunity to network and connect with the other nominees and speakers at this prestigious event, further positioning herself and Wolf Point Advisors as a business and industry leader in the LA community.
Join us in congratulating Giulia!
