Diverse and Inclusive Teams
Creating a workspace that not only recognizes but celebrates diversity is the cornerstone of innovation and growth.
I'm committed to cultivating a team that represents a tapestry of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. Diversity for me isn't just about ticking boxes – it's about bringing together a myriad of voices that challenge the status quo and push boundaries.
Inclusion means every voice in the room is heard and valued. It means creating a culture where everyone, from any walk of life, can find their place and thrive.
Our journey is ongoing. We listen, we learn, and we lead by embracing the unique contributions of all team members. Join me in weaving a work culture rich with varied ideas, united by a shared goal: excellence.
Don’t Take My Word for It
Tony is my mentor on the Insurance industry, how to scale an insurance business, and how both risk diversification and risk specialization factor into growing a healthy insurance partner ecosystem. I had the pleasure of working for Tony as my General Manager for 3 years while at Homesite and American Family Insurance. Tony has a people-first view knowing that profitable insurance businesses are built upon trust with customers, insurance agents, and partner companies to create the best products and offerings. Tony thinks big and is a transformative leader embracing innovative technology platforms to engage customers and insurance agents with low-friction experiences, using data and AI for operational efficiency, and being agile in the marketplace adjusting to ever-changing market conditions. No matter the situation or problem, Tony has seen a version of it before and has tons of great, entertaining stories to share his learnings, breadth of experience, and bring laughter into tough situations.
If you are looking for a committed, forward-thinking leader who can motivate and lead people through ambiguity and competitive markets, I highly recommend Tony.
Tony is a bit of a unicorn when it comes to leading large-scale technical programs with a deep understanding of the business outcomes which these programs are designed to deliver. I had the privilege of working with and for Tony on one such Program that delivered foundational capabilities, innovation and architectural simplicity for the enterprise. His disciplined leadership frames programs in a way that galvanizes extended teams against a shared vision by acting decisively, continuously evaluating, and pivoting when necessary. In that context, Tony is a transformative leader that does not avoid hard truths or difficult challenges. Instead he takes responsibility for his decisions, maintains optimism throughout, and focuses on charting new courses of action when information demands it. In doing so, he leads teams and organizations through an ever changing business landscape driving true transformation.
I would work for Tony again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to lead any organization that is looking to drive transformation in the marketplace.
Tony is one of the most effective and energetic leaders I have worked for. Always with an eye on driving operational efficiencies, expense management and process improvements, Tony's passion for operating at the highest levels is commendable. His work ethic coupled with his keen interest in instilling operational excellence across an organization is unparalleled and his ability to make those around him work smarter and at a higher level is respectable.
Having worked with Tony over the past five years both indirectly and directly, I have learned how to challenge myself outside of my comfort zone with Tony's leadership and learned more about IT, budgeting and operations than I had known previously. He seeks to transfer his deep knowledge base across teams to help develop those around him.
Tony is a great leader who naturally and easily commands respect because of his management and leadership skills. Eager, knowledgeable, effective and persistent; all great things in a leader!
