Christina Hoffman joined Donegal Insurance Group in Marietta as their manager of internal audit in 2009 after a seven-year stint with McKonly & Asbury. Twelve years later, she’s a key member of the insurance firm as a senior vice president and the chief risk officer.
“For every group or committee that she is a member of, she is seen as a valuable asset for the energy and direction she brings to the table,” Jay Martin, Donegal’s vice president of information security, says in his nomination letter.
Hoffman’s role was brand new when she was hired, and over the last decade, she’s expanded the risk department from three to 11 employees.
“Certain roles ultimately transferred internally where they could be more fully and appropriately maximized,” she says. “I’ve learned so much over the last 25 years and intend to support and promote others throughout their careers.”
She downplays her success as the result of a good work ethic passed along by her parents and an ability to be relatable to her coworkers.
“I’ve built many strong relationships throughout my career which have afforded me excellent opportunities to succeed,” Hoffman explains.
Martin also praises her work ethic, calling her a “superb manager” and noting her ability to understand complicated issues plus terrific communication skills.
