About the Guest

Raghav Tanna

After graduating from Bentley University in 2015, Raghav Tanna got his start in the insurance industry as a commercial insurance producer and underwriter. In 2018, Raghav co-founded Tarmika, a single-entry commercial lines rating solution, with the goal of empowering independent agents with tech built for them. As a web-based solution, Tarmika utilizes API technology to allow independent agents to quote multiple carriers in a single-entry. After Applied Systems acquired Tarmika in 2022, Raghav transitioned into a new role, Senior Vice President of Small Commercial Lines.
