Va. Beach insurance agency taps CFO
Shawn McArdle joins Choice Financial Group from Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
Shawn McArdle is Choice Financial Group’s new chief financial officer, the Virginia Beach-based insurance agency announced Wednesday.
“Shawn’s ability to provide financial leadership allows Choice’s senior management team to focus on identifying the right partners for the platform,” Choice President Richard Braun said in a statement. “Shawn’s experience will be instrumental as we continue to bring on new agency partners.”
McArdle was most recently a regional CFO at Illinois-based Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. He has spent more than 15 years working as a senior finance executive.
“The Choice management team has built an outstanding platform from which there are numerous opportunities for further growth,” McArdle said in a statement. “Choice is an extremely attractive opportunity for our recent and future acquisition partners.”
Choice provides property and casualty insurance and employee benefits service and has 16 offices in six states. In January, it announced that Robert “Bob” Hilb would lead mergers and acquisitions.
