President - Automotive in Burr Ridge, Illinois
Dennis Haggerty has risen through the ranks of his previous employers, as well as any industry he seeks to conquer. He was never afraid to try new things throughout his career. He had very little experience in the automotive industry when he started Car Dealer Benefits. As that venture grew, he decided that healthcare was the next industry he wanted to dominate.
This would prove to be a profitable decision for his portfolio, as his focus on genetic testing was the key to building relationships in the telemedicine world. While he couldn't predict the pandemic, he could see how technology was progressing in healthcare. When many people still had difficulty accessing services or prescriptions, Dennis Haggerty Jr. recognized that virtual appointments would be critical to leveling the playing field for patients of all backgrounds.
Dennis' healthcare company would go national once COVID-19 took over. Because of his rapid growth and success, Haggarty needed to scale his services. Fortunately, he had prior knowledge of what to do when your company is in high demand. As a former CFO, he understood how to manage his revenue so that it lasted. As a former CEO, he understood how to collaborate with others in order to meet the expectations of his customers. Dennis Haggerty Jr. not only remained calm and level-headed throughout every career turn, but he also thrived in the face of adversity.
