Jeff Robinson: 20 in Their 20s

Congratulations to Jeff Robinson, vice president of risk and operations at Alpha Warranty Services, Inc. He has been selected as one of the 2017 20 in Their 20s honorees.

A month before his 20th birthday, Jeff Robinson got a job as a claims adjustor at Alpha Warranty Services. Almost nine years later, Robinson is still there and has become a pillar in the growing company’s leadership.

Robinson worked while he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees, all the while helping the company grow to nearly 100 employees. “I was grateful to have the opportunity to learn business best practices in college and immediately be able to apply them to my job. It was the perfect fit,” he says.

In his current role, Robinson created Alpha Warranty Services’ risk management system from scratch. And he quickly realized that crunching numbers was not enough. “The next step, which was just as vital as the first, was presenting my findings to our underwriters and executive team in a clear, concise and persuasive way,” he says. “As I started to see my predictions result in greater profitability for the company, my confidence grew.”


“I am currently reading Charlotte’s Web to my first-grade daughter. Prior to that, I read The Unofficial Project Manager by Korey Kogan, Suzette Blakemore and James Wood. I learned better techniques for staying organized throughout the life of a project and how to keep everyone motivated to see a project through to completion.”
