Argo Group colleagues teamed up with broker partners to host a LinkedIn Live session at the WSIA Annual Marketplace. Their discussion focused on early career advice and Argo’s investment in young professionals, including through internships and Ascend With Argo.
Panelists shared advice on building brands and relationships
- Communicate honestly. “Relationships are everything in this industry,” says Kate Garcia, AVP, Construction, Middle Market. The panelists emphasized that responsive, honest communication builds trust and helps relationships thrive.
- Be visible. “You need to be in front of your clients,” says Chris Schramm, VP Underwriting – Head of Primary Casualty. “Attend events like WSIA, go to local chapter happy hours, go out to industry events and educational events.”
- Branch out. “Continue the thirst for knowledge,” says Kate. “Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. Continue to do things, and it opens so many doors.”
