  • "It's what you do right now that makes a difference." - Black Hawk Down.

    Senior Email Campaign Marketing Manager, Rakesh Nautiyal, is accomplishing great things with Direct Auto Insurance while truly exemplifying our 4 E philosophy.

    "Engage, Energize, Empower and Execute - the 4 E culture is engraved in me. I advocate that they're the most important principles to accomplish organizational goals.

    Direct Auto Insurance has a clearly defined mission and cultivates a culture where purpose is more important than process. Satisfied employees are more willing to go the extra mile for the organization and I have witnessed this from the Direct family first hand. Achieving the perfect work-life balance might seem unattainable at some other companies, but not to us at Direct!

    We believe in building trust and encouraging open communication at all levels which creates a wonderfully positive team spirit. The leadership at Direct Auto Insurance is fueled by passion and purpose to inspire the team, in turn inspiring me to be positive and flow the same energy wherever I go.
