Maureen Gallagher, AssuredPartners

Agency president

As a recent high school graduate desperate for a job, Maureen Gallagher found work at Zurich Insurance Company – “the only company that would hire me” – and quickly learned that she possessed the skills and talent needed to succeed. “I really enjoyed the work,” she says. “I wanted to build a career in insurance.”

Over the course of her career, Gallagher has gotten to know the inner workings of many businesses in order to serve them best. “You cannot insure a business without intimate knowledge of their operations,” she says. “Insurance safeguards the interests of people and business from uncertainty by providing certainty of payment at a given contingency. Our economy and everyday lives are facilitated because we have insurance.”

Gallagher is an active participant in AssuredPartners’ mentoring groups for women and its AP University. She also owns Insurance Partners Academy and is a regular keynote speaker at colleges and women’s events. “I am in the twilight of my career,” she says, “and my focus now is on mentoring and supporting the next generation of leaders, producers and top service representatives, as well as continuing to service my current clients.”
