Insurance companies and brokers in the Hartford, Connecticut area now have a new resource for recruiting insurance talent—DGA Careers. The company has 33 years of experience recruiting for the insurance industry across Canada and is now entering the US market.
Gerald Legrove, President of DGA Careers, is pleased to announce the opening of their new insurance industry recruitment and executive search office in Hartford. “We see a lot of opportunity to connect insurers, insurance brokerage firms and independent adjusting firms with the most talented candidates in the Hartford area.” Legrove said, “Our research in the market revealed significant demand for our services as specialists in recruiting for insurance.”
The new office is managed by Debra Gallo and Stefanie Smith, who join DGA Careers as Talent Acquisition Partners.
Debra Gallo’s impressive insurance career spans over 20 years and includes extensive experience in claims with firms like Travelers, Liberty Mutual and AIG. Prior to her tenure as an insurance professional, she launched her career in staffing. Gallo has worked with the Leadership Development team and has been an active participant of the Woman’s Diversity Network. She has a great appreciation for the industry along with a clear understanding of the culture.
Stefanie Smith brings a wealth of experience in talent acquisition, in both corporate and agency recruiting. After graduating from Eastern CT State University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Smith began her career in sales, and the transition into recruiting was a natural fit to her outgoing personality and proven ability to build relationships.
Legrove stated, “We’ve got a strong, experienced team in Debra and Stefanie and I know they will bring tremendous value to both our clients and candidates, which will positively impact the insurance industry in Hartford.”
