Lenore Marema

Lenore Marema joined The Surety & Fidelity Association of America (SFAA) in February 2004, as Vice President of Government Affairs. She represents the common interests of surety and fidelity bond writers in federal, state and local legislative and regulatory matters. When she came to SFAA, Ms. Marema had 25 years of prior experience in the property-casualty industry, largely with the Alliance of American Insurers, but she knew nothing about surety as the Alliance did not represent sureties. She has enjoyed every minute of learning and representing the unique insurance products of the surety industry. She is a native of Chicago, Ill. and graduated magna cum laude from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill. and the University of Illinois College of Law. Ms. Marema is received her Chartered Property-Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation in 1990.
