Brooke Lugonjic, MARSHBERRY
Director, organic growth consulting
Within a few months of being hired as a team lead for MarshBerry’s talent acquisition services in 2016, Brooke Lugonjic was promoted to manager of that division. She oversaw a team of recruiting professionals, consulted with clients on organic growth, originated business and drove significant organizational change, updating and reshaping processes and workflow and creating standard operating procedures for the unit from scratch. At the same time, Lugonjic formalized the internship program for her team, which has led to a pipeline of qualified young professionals joining MarshBerry and gaining exposure to the insurance industry.
Since joining MarshBerry, Lugonjic has seen year-over-year growth in new business revenue, was recognized as the MarshBerry Sales Rookie of the Year in 2018 and, in 2019, is on pace for a 50% increase in new business compared to her 2018 results. Her efforts have resulted in better-qualified candidates and clients, a more effective team and the placement of more than 500 insurance industry professionals for clients.
