She has been with Progressive for the past seven years, where she’s led major advertising campaigns and is most recently leading major marketing initiatives within its Commercial Lines division.

As a devoted music fan and pop culture junkie, Gargi is easily engaged in any conversation about music, fashion, movies, or good TV shows. She enjoys travel and socializing at her favorite Tremont bars and restaurants.
