Raffi Kodikian is an experienced Vice President with a demonstrated history of success in the insurance industry.[1][2][3][4]


Kodikian graduated from Northeastern University, Boston in 1997 with a BA in Journalism.[5]

He began his insurance career in San Francisco in 2004, starting on the ground floor as an administrative assistant and office manager, and quickly growing to add Assistant Broker to his resume.[6]

It wasn’t long before Raffi was broking his own accounts, with a focus on Lawyers Professional Liability, working both on program business and open-brokerage products. Given the volume of attorneys in California, Lawyers Professional Liability soon became the cornerstone of his book, and since that time Raffi has placed coverage for firms of all sizes and Areas of Practice. His focus has been on California firms, a market unlike any other in the country, though he has placed firms in states all across the United States.[7]

In 2017, Kodikian joined Founders Professional as an LPL practice leader, helping the brokerage expand into the Western United States, and become a national wholesale operation. “I feel very lucky to have found this industry and the role I play in it,” he says. “I strive every day to do right by my clients and be an excellent partner to my carriers, well aware that if I don’t bring my A game to either relationship, the other will suffer as a result.”[8]

Kodikian hails from the Philadelphia area where, as a child, he languished as an Eagles fan, but is now known by his newly-earned nickname "Champ".
