Shawn McArdle is the new chief financial officer of Choice Financial Group, the Virginia Beach-based insurance agency announced Wednesday.
“Shawn’s ability to provide financial leadership allows Choice’s 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 in new agency partners.”
McArdle was until recently regional chief financial officer at Illinois-based Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. He spent over 15 years working as a senior finance executive.
“Choice’s management team has built an exceptional platform from which there are many opportunities for 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 services and has 16 offices in six states. In January, he announced that Robert “Bob” Hilb would lead mergers and acquisitions.
