Hello, I’m Linda Picha from Minneapolis, your Sales Executive in the Umbrella division. I look forward to working with you.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

What I love most about my job is getting deals done and the people that I work with, both the brokers as well as the internal underwriting teams.

What’s a fun fact about you?

A little fun fact about me is that I am an identical twin.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?

Well, if I were a superhero, what would I want my superhero power to be? I would love the ability to transport, snap your fingers, and be somewhere else; that would be fantastic.

What’s your favorite thing about the place where you live?

My favorite thing about living in the Twin Cities is that Minneapolis, Minnesota, has a ton of lakes, and it’s absolutely spectacular. There are a lot of bike trails, and I really enjoy the four seasons.

If you could have dinner with any celebrity or historical figure (past or present), who would it be and why?

If I were to have dinner with somebody, past or present, historical or a celebrity, I would love to have dinner with Benjamin Franklin. Here’s a man, an inventor, intelligent, talented, funny, and was known to have a pint or two, so it’d be interesting.
