In her short tenure working with State Fund, Marj has delivered significant cost savings through vendor and contract negotiations and has reduced our exposure to security and service outage risks by working on remediation on our firewall. Her talents for bringing clarity, process, clear expectations, as well as constructive coaching are already on full display within State Fund.

Marj graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Computer Information Systems from Northern Arizona University and has more than 20 years of experience in technology, 13 of those years in the insurance industry. She was an original member of the technology team for an insurance start up whose business strategy was founded on delivering superior technology.

She is a proven leader, with demonstrated success in building high-performing technology teams and a consistent track record for delivering effective technology solutions for the insurance industry. Her experience includes work with:

  • Property & Casualty claims systems

  • Online/real time customer-facing web platforms
  • Virtualization of production systems and the implementation of a private cloud
  • Data security protocols and network/applications standards for internet-based insurance transactions

We have restructured the leadership roles in IT to create more focus and improve development and implementation processes. As Chief Information Officer, Marj will be responsible for the successful administration of the IT organization.  Marj will also serve on the Executive Committee.


The CIO is responsible for establishing and directing the long-term goals, policies, and procedures for State Fund’s information technology, as well as determining the organization’s long-term systems needs and hardware acquisitions to accomplish State Fund’s business objectives.
