Capstone was founded in 2002 as a search firm dedicated to the insurance industry. Our president and founder Scot Dickerson was a successful recruiter who started his career in insurance. Being from Des Moines and at a certain point in his life and career, he wanted to control his own destiny. Like a lot of senior producers, Scot’s practice followed him and those clients became the foundation for starting Capstone.
At that time, circa 2002 and earlier, most insurance recruiters worked only with insurance carriers. Scot’s 25+ year career has always been and will be focused on the company side which remains a huge part of our business today. However, as we’ve grown our team has added insurance professionals from other core disciplines: Commercial, Personal Lines, Employee Benefits and retail agency production, which means today we have an equally as sizable agency practice as our carrier division.
The last 15 years have flown by, and we’re excited about the future. No matter the changes ahead, the nexus of our Capstone’s team will be in insurance recruiting.
We are committed to providing recruiting services of the highest quality. In the course of our searches, we adhere to high ethical standards, integrity and confidentiality.
Customization in our approach. We tailor each and everything we do to fit the unique and ever-changing needs of our clients. We come from the insurance industry and we put that knowledge and experience to work for you.
We have an innate understanding of insurance businesses. We are in touch with market trends, talent acquisition and the roles/functions/needs of all insurance organizations, which allows us to creatively work through staffing solutions tailored to each individual client.
At Capstone we value our people and have created a challenging and professional environment where employees can excel. We exist to serve our clients and while professionalism is paramount, we have developed a culture where professional success does not come at the cost of individuality, family-centric values, and having fun. Capstone’s foundation is in our people.
