Rocco F. Schiaffino, Philadelphia Insurance Companies
Regional sales manager
Philadelphia Insurance Companies
Shortly after graduating from Lafayette College in 2012, Rocco Schiaffino landed a position as a marketing trainee at Philadelphia Insurance Companies. At the time, he was still unsure of the career path he wanted to pursue, but he threw himself into cold calling, soliciting new business and providing overall support to the regional marketing team in the company’s Lawrenceville office.
A year later, Schiaffino transferred to New York and has served the New York City metro area ever since, first as a marketing representative and currently as a regional sales manager. In 2019, he was named an Emerging Leader by the Insurance Brokers Association of New York. He has also been one of his company’s top producers for four consecutive years.
“Looking forward, I would like to see the industry gain popularity with younger people,” Schiaffino says. “Companies in the industry have been looking to find and grow young talent, but I think more could be done. With all the different career paths available, there are opportunities for everyone.”
