Elephant Auto Insurance has been one of the fastest growing car insurance companies in Texas over the past several years. Now, they hope to be one of the fastest growing employers in Texas. This month marks the grand opening of Elephant’s new Dallas-Fort Worth office, located in Carrollton, Texas. A huge milestone for Elephant, the ‘herd’ is excited to set roots in its new Texas office. Elephant has been building a loyal following in the Dallas area with their sponsorship of FC Dallas, and more recently with a TV ad featuring famed country star Josh Abbott.
The company held a grand opening event on February 9th, with attendees that included the Mayor of Carrollton, the Director of Economic Development for the city, and Dan Hunt, President of FC Dallas.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for Elephant and for Dallas. It’s no secret that there’s tremendous growth in the market – and that means an opportunity for us to get both great customers and great employees,” said Kevin Chidwick, CEO of Elephant. “We know that being Texan is different than being from anywhere else in the country – and we want to make sure our employees understand that. What better way than to actually hire real Texans?”
While speaking about Elephant’s new office, Dan Hunt congratulated Elephant and explained that, “the DFW market has taken notice of Elephant’s incredible growth the last few years, and FC Dallas has been proud to partner with such a dynamic and expanding organization.”
Hunt expanded on the partnership between FC Dallas and Elephant, “Community is an important initiative for both organizations. The partnership between Elephant and FC Dallas extends off the pitch and into the neighborhoods we touch and our teams work hard to give back to the metroplex that we both call home. Elephant and FC Dallas are working to make a difference in the life of local youth through the sport of soccer.”
A 2016 winner of The Richmond Times Dispatch Top Work Places Award, Elephant is also looking to bring its unique work culture to Dallas. Elephant will have new roles for sales agents followed by customer service and claims roles later in 2017. Elephant believes that people who like what they do, do it better, and offers competitive starting salaries as well as a comprehensive benefits package, educational support programs, a generous parental leave policy, and community engagement.
Mr. Chidwick added, “We want the opportunity to make people’s lives better in DFW – whether it’s saving them money on car insurance, giving back to the community, or providing jobs for local residents – Elephant is here to make the Dallas-Fort Worth area even better than it already is.”
