Why The ARGroup?

Accounting, Finance & Audit Talent Search for Insurance Companies

Every year since 1998 has been a great year for The ARGroup of Search Companies and for our clients looking for the best talent in the market. Here are some of the reasons why:

The Companies

Our searches are for well run and well-respected insurance companies that we have known and worked with for years. We know finance, accounting and audit for insurance companies, whether it’s in the P&C, Life and Retirement, Health, or Reinsurance space. We are sensitive to the differing needs of insurance companies whether they are U.S. based, Bermuda based, or subsidiaries of international companies. We understand the specific situations and requirements that trigger a search, enabling us to target the talent that will best meet the client’s needs and that will best fit into the organization.

The Choice

We have been selected because of our deep knowledge of the industry, extensive contacts within the industry at every level, reputation for integrity, and track record of finding and placing excellent people. In short, when carriers, brokers, MGAs, or MGUs consider insurance recruiters or insurance executive recruiters with a focus in accounting, finance and audit, they consider ARExecutiveSearch and The ARGroup.

The Approach

We use a multipoint approach, starting with a broad search of suitable candidates and narrowing down to those who best meet the requirements and who would be the best fit for the organization. Resumes, experience, and career/life aspirations are evaluated, and top candidates are vetted confidentially with trusted insurance industry contacts. Multiple interviews of the top candidates are conducted, both with The ARGroup of Search Companies and with the client.

The Solution

When the top candidate is identified for a role, we are actively involved with all negotiations, including salary, benefits, relocation issues, etc., to satisfy both client and candidate and to ensure there are no negative surprises post-hire. Offers are made and accepted, and mutually agreed upon start dates are set. Post-hire follow-up is conducted to ensure that both client and candidate are doing well.

Throughout this process our goal has been, and always will be, to be the best in the insurance accounting and finance search business, so that we can continue to satisfy clients and candidates for many years to come. As the partnerships with our clients grow, we look for ways to support their growing and diverse needs. Our senior search and research teams are particularly adept at forecasting needs, strategizing, and recruiting excellent people who can meet those needs and enhance our clients’ businesses.
