TUCSON, Ariz., June 3, 2014 – To all of the newly minted members of the class of 2014 who are graduating this spring: GEICO salutes you! For you and all college graduates looking to build on their degree with a career in management, look no further than GEICO for outstanding leadership opportunities.

GEICO's regional office in Tucson is looking for more than 45 bright, driven college seniors and graduates to join the accelerated Management Development Program (MDP), one of the company's leadership programs. MDP candidates must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, strong academics and leadership acumen—whether in the community, at work or on campus, such as club involvement, volunteering and athletics.

"We're looking for the next generation of bright, innovative professionals who are interested in taking part in this exciting program in Tucson and kick-starting a career in management," said Martha Furnas, GEICO regional vice president. "Both our Tucson office and the company as a whole are growing at a phenomenal rate, and we need to continue developing outstanding leaders to maintain that momentum."

Associates in Tucson's leadership program receive industry-leading training and on-the-job experience in the office's various departments of claims, sales and customer service. The fast-track management training program also provides mentoring opportunities, real-life business projects and management forums and develops participants into future business leaders.

GEICO's Tucson office, which opened for business in 2003 with fewer than 50 associates, has rapidly expanded because of strong growth and a reputation for being an outstanding place to build a career. GEICO was recognized by CareerBuilder as a Top Company to Work for in Arizona in 2013.
