Alumni Profile

Benjamin Granja '12

Underwriter, Liberty Mutual

I came to Saint Michael's College from Los Angeles, CA, and double-majored in Political Science and Religious Studies.

The great faculty at St. Mike's gave me the confidence to think critically and purposefully. Professors like Jeff Ayres and Ray Patterson inspired me to have bold ideas and test them inside and outside of the classroom. They also gave me the confidence to eventually become the Captain of Saint Michael's Fire and Rescue, start my own summer moving company, and give tours for the Founder's Society.

The culmination of these experiences lead to my full-time employment with the Fortune 100 Company Liberty Mutual in their claims operation. The skills I acquired from my time at Saint Michael's continue to pay off. Only seven months after graduation I have been promoted to an underwriting position in one of the fastest growing divisions of commercial insurance. I now have the opportunity to bring on new business and add to the bottom line of one of the most profitable companies in the United States and it is all thanks to the phenomenal faculty and staff at Saint Michael's College.
