Darwin Rhodes, a fast-growing global specialist in professional financial services and insurance recruitment, has strengthened its American presence with a new office opening in Chicago and the appointment of a new Manager.
Laura Santoro has been appointed as Chicago Manager. She joins Darwin Rhodes with five years of US actuarial recruitment experience in all disciplines including life, health, property, casualty, retirement and financial services, during her previous role with DW Simpson.
Laura’s experience also includes international candidate placement, covering 11 countries. Laura will be heading up the Chicago office for Darwin Rhodes.
The Chicago office augments Darwin Rhodes’ global expansion plans whilst enhancing the Group’s ability to support its fast growing prospects base in the US. Initially the office will specialise in actuarial and senior appointments.
Peter Dunphy, CEO, Darwin Rhodes said:
“Darwin Rhodes is already well placed in the USA with an office in New York, making Chicago a natural progression on the path to creating an American branch network. This will introduce a specialist team into this region which will allow global clients access to consultants across all market specialisations in the principal locations where they recruit.
Darwin Rhodes has potential to expand across the insurance and financial sectors in the US as we work with top international financial institutions such as AIG and Liberty Mutual, as well as multinational consulting firms like Deloitte and PWC.”
