Omaha, Nebraska – Omaha National, a provider of workers compensation insurance and payroll services to small and midsize businesses, recently announced the promotion of Mary Senff to vice president of company development. In this role she is responsible for the company employee development program and other strategic initiatives.
“Mary leads many key functions within the company. One of the most important is our in-house training program. We’ve found it rarely works for us to hire experienced employees from other workers comp companies: Our standards are higher and our strategic thinking is quite different. So we hire for brains, character, and aptitude, and provide our own unique training,” said Naomi Wilson, chief operating officer of Omaha National.
Omaha National is growing fast with premium doubling year over year and coverage expanding into Illinois and Pennsylvania. As a result, staff has grown from six employees to 85 in three years and the company is in the process of doubling its office space.
Senff is one of Omaha National’s six founding executives. She previously worked as the learning and development manager at a national workers compensation company. Additionally, she is involved in the community as a guild board member for the Child Saving Institute and is active in fundraising for the National Brain Tumor Society. Senff earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
