Maureen Gallagher, ASSUREDPARTNERS
Maureen Gallagher’s calling goes beyond serving as AssuredPartners’ Michigan president and national real estate and workers’ comp practice leader – her passion for education inspired her to establish Insurance Partners Academy in 2003. A frequent presenter, Gallagher was on the national teaching faculty for the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research for 15 years and is the creator of several industry-specific certification programs. She is a member of the American Bar Association and the Society of Trainers and Educators, and serves on the technical affairs committee for the Insurance Service Office.
Prior to AssuredPartners, Gallagher was president and CEO of Acordia of Michigan, assuming that role after leading her own agency for more than 10 years. Past honors include being named one of Detroit’s most influential women by Crain’s Detroit Business and receiving the Responsibility Leader Award from Liberty Mutual and the Soaring Eagle Leadership Award from The Executive Committee. She ends every class and speech with her favorite quote from Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”
