The ARD Group is an executive recruiting company specializing in (and only in) all aspects of the insurance industry. We understand the challenges faced by hiring managers and assist them in their recruitment needs, and are therefore uniquely qualified to assist them not only in the search itself, but also in areas such as job definition, appropriate compensation, and candidate qualifications.

The ARD Group was founded by two long-time insurance and recruitment professionals - Ralph D'Avino and Ken Wallace. With a combined 30 years of insurance and 40 years of recruiting experience, they brought a sterling level of expertise to insurance recruitment. In the past six years, The ARD Group has expanded through the addition of experienced executives who have added in excess of 120 years of combined insurance industry experience to the firm, enabling us to work with employers and candidates with a full understanding of the nuances of each specific position.

In late 2006, ARD joined forces with ACG Resources, a leader in executive search and recruitment for the financial services community for the past 25 years.

With the financial services and insurance industries now offering both insurance and investment products, this merger has provided an opportunity to broaden and enhance the service capabilities of both organizations to the benefit of our respective client bases.
