Employee Spotlight at Gallagher
In this week’s Employee Spotlight, we spoke to Pamela Kavanagh, Commercial Insurance Executive in our Wexford office. Pam joined our team in 2008 and she shed light on how she started working in insurance and why she continues to work for Gallagher.
1. How did you first get into insurance?
I started with Hibernian Direct in 2005 and then moved to Gallagher in 2008. I started my insurance career as a Personal Account Executive, I then moved on to SME Insurance and progressed further as a Commercial Insurance Executive in 2020.
2. Why do you love it?
I really enjoy talking to clients over the phone and meeting with them in person. I love the buzz of looking after a new client and building the relationship year after year. What I love most is making my clients happy knowing that I’ve gone the extra mile for them and their business.
3. Why do you continue to work at Gallagher?
Honestly, the people that I work with at Gallagher are great and I enjoy working with them. I like being part of the global Gallagher family too. There are opportunities for us to travel for conferences, events, education etc. and we get to meet people from across the globe which is really interesting.
4. What are you most proud of about your time at Gallagher so far?
I was picked as one of the top sales people in Ireland to travel to a Las Vegas for the Power of Gallagher. This was a sales and awards conference where Gallagher employees from across the globe join together to network, celebrate each other’s growth and success within the company. I was honoured to attend the event and meet some amazing people.
5. What’s your vision for the future – where do you want to be in five years’ time?
I would like to continue to grow my client base and succeed within Gallagher. I enjoy my work and I look forward to whatever the future brings.
