Emma Gallagher

Vice President, Legal & Compliance

Since joining Madison-Davis as a Researcher in September 2020, Emma became an Executive Recruiter within her first 3 months of employment. Her ability to quickly develop a deep understanding of the legal and compliance space, willingness to take on any challenge and her strength in establishing trustworthy and reliable candidate and client relationships led to her achieving the fastest “Vice President” promotion in company history. She now acts as the client manager for three major foreign financial institutions, leads, trains and develops her own direct reports within the compliance group and continues to maintain a diverse candidate network ranging from entry-level analysts to CCOs.

Emma also was awarded “Rookie of the Year,” the Madison Davis annual award granted to that years’ top performing new executive recruiter.

Prior to joining Madison Davis, Emma graduated from the University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and HR Management and a minor in Political Science. In her free time, she enjoys practicing yoga and traveling.
