We are excited to share that Direct Agents has been listed as one of Crain’s Best Places to Work in NYC for the fourth consecutive year in a row!

When Direct Agents was established in 2003, Co-Founders Josh and Dinesh Boaz saw an opportunity to create an agency that breaks the industry mold; focusing on culture, diversity, innovation, and long-term sustainable growth.

“When we founded Direct Agents in 2003, we envisioned an agency culture focused on diversity, education, and hustle,” said Dinesh Boaz, Co-Founder of Direct Agents. “Building the company’s foundation on these key pillars has allowed us to create a culture where employees are empowered to create their own career journey and make an impact.”

Over the last year and a half, we’ve learned to pivot in a way that has kept our dynamic workplace culture intact while also keeping employees safe. Our hybrid work model has helped increase employee morale after the extended periods of fully remote work in 2020.  While the pandemic forced us out of our brightly-hued physical surroundings and put up barriers of distance and “technical difficulties,” a resilient culture deeply rooted in grit, collaboration, and dedication to excellence continues to endure.

“On behalf of the people and culture team, we’re thrilled to be able to share this latest recognition with all of Direct Agents’ ‘Shapers of Change.’ At Direct Agents each individual is empowered to contribute to our culture of growth and education, diversity and equity, and of course, celebration,” said Sara Martinez-Noriega, VP of Human Resources. ”While our culture has always been strong, it was inspiring to see the genuine passion and commitment our team members demonstrated to keep our culture thriving even through the toughest parts of the pandemic.”
