In a world of massive global competition, Haleh Khodayari has managed to become an industry leader as a corporate risk management consultant despite all the challenges that come with owning three corporations and living with a disability.

Innovative female entrepreneur Haleh Khodayari sets an international precedent as a corporate advocate who manages to represent large corporations reducing their cost of injuries and disabilities while fighting her own physical challenges.

Diagnosed with polio at the age of 5 months, Haleh has never let her disability prevent her from achieving exponential success. Her unique business practices and innovative approach to risk management have grossed her three companies, Labor Management Services, Inc. (CA State Entity), Advanced Consulting, Inc.(CA State Entity), and Labor Management Specialist, LLC. (NY State Entity), more than $2 Million in revenue, as well as a solid name in the industry and the trust of many multi-million dollar corporations. 

While managing risk over the past five years, Haleh has provided companies with Workers’ Compensation and disability management advice saving them an aggregate of more than $80 million in claims management and litigation costs. Haleh has developed her own unique method to not only add to the profitability of her client’s businesses, but also show the world that having a disability is not always an insurmountable challenge. 

"It took me a long time to realize that my crutches are the first thing anyone notices about me. I now know that it is possible for me to create the illusion of them being invisible. Because of this, I've learned to be unconventional, entertaining, and always act and think differently than expected. This has been the cornerstone of running my business,” says Haleh.

With a 100 percent client retention rate, Haleh’s consulting expertise provides her clients with the tools to get their employees back into the work force and thus reduce one of the largest costs to corporations, Workers’ Compensation exposure. Her method is to reinvent the rules and upset the status quo, when appropriate, to show objective and tangible results.

Haleh is a woman who not only cares for her diverse clientele but also prioritizes her company’s culture and authenticity over her own ego. This has inspired her to develop an open and honest workspace where every employee is treated as a partner and is included in all facets of the business. 

Ultimately, Haleh claims that the recipe for running a successful company is, “Equal parts of ethics plus karma plus transparency plus confidence plus expertise... With a touch of paranoia and a pinch of weirdness.” While Haleh is fully committed to her goal of growing her companies, her true dream is to make her mark by putting together a motivational program targeted specifically to help children with disabilities in realizing their passions, finding success and learning to appreciate their uniqueness.
