Meet Our Team

 

 

Edward Gajdosik
President

I have been in the financial services industry for 30+ years, and the insurance industry for over 3. I enjoy helping clients protect the people and things that mean the most to them.

I grew up in Yonkers, NY, and graduated from Iona College with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I enjoy trying to make a positive difference with community involvement. I also enjoy sports and attending 80’s music dance events. You can find me taking scenic walks at the park, or helping out in the community and I find almost anything chocolate, irresistible. I am passionate about volunteering/supporting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and United Way.

Geoffrey Csenge

I am an agent with 20 years of Property & Casualty, Life Insurance and Retirement planning experience. With my understanding of industry products, I am dedicated to finding solutions for our client’s needs.

I am a lifelong resident of Larchmont and I enjoy spending time with my family while enjoying the Sound Shore area, hiking and boating.

Rich Schaefer

I have over 10 years of experience in the insurance industry, holding both Life and Health Licenses in the past and currently Licensed in Property & Casualty, Personal and Commercial Lines.

Born, bred, and raised in Yonkers, NY, I Graduate from Iona Prep and Iona College. I enjoy and find it pleasing to help people and make them smile. I enjoy my 2 boys Nick (19) and Dean (16), my fiancée Farah, and her son John(16)! With my family, barbecuing at home or on the golf course. I also love playing softball, golf, and attending Church.

Maurice Dostal
Licensed Risk Advisor

Been working at the agency for the past 2 and a half years, my focus is Life Insurance and Excess Liability Insurance (also known as Personal Umbrella Policies.) I am constantly making sure clients have the right protection for the really big stuff that so often gets overlooked – Life Insurance and cover against lawsuits in the form of Personal Umbrella Policies!

I grew up in Hoboken, NJ but commuted to school in Manhattan for 13 years starting at Age 5 (Kindergarten) all the way through High School (Regis). I lived in London, England for 15 years and moved back to New Jersey in 2015. I really enjoy travelling, in particular, England, Ireland and the Czech Republic where I have made many friends during my 15 years abroad. I also enjoy relaxing with family in my hometown (Hoboken), taking walks along the riverfront with the occasional meal at a local restaurant. I am very knowledgeable about 19th Century European paintings having worked at both Sotheby’s and Christie’s in my younger days. My wife and I help out at our son’s school on a regular basis and we have made many good friends amongst the other parents.

Gina Nuccetelli
Chief Operating Officer

I’ve been working in the insurance industry since 2015. I like having the opportunity to work with people to have a better understanding of insurance and help them manage their risks. I grew up in Yonkers, but moved to Yorktown Heights 22 years ago. I also work as a Real Estate Agent in Yorktown and the surrounding areas and I just love the communities that I serve. In general, I really enjoy working with and helping people. Making a complicated process simpler and easier to understand for someone makes me feel that I’ve served our client well.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends on the weekends. My family and I have been supporters of Support Connection in Yorktown Heights for many years. This non-profit organization provides emotional, social and educational support to woman, their families and friends affected by breast and ovarian cancer.

Laurie Spinello
Agency Manager / Licensed Risk Advisor

While I am new to the insurance industry, I have over 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, and business management. I love being able to bring a fresh perspective to the table and am thrilled to be learning something new every day. I grew up in Connecticut and moved to New York so I could start my career in NYC and live life in the big city. My broad interests have led me to have a varied background in the fashion, health and construction industries!

The common thread throughout all of my professional experiences is the passion I have for the connections I make with people of all backgrounds. I take pride in helping others find solutions to their problems and putting their mind at ease. When I am not working, you’ll find me outdoors – whether it is walking my dogs, gardening, going to flea markets and outdoor festivals.

My favorite way to spend the weekend depends on the season! If it is warm, you will find me near the water or taking a day trip to an outdoor event. However, in the winter, I hibernate so you will find me relaxing with my family and a glass of wine! Another activity I love is cooking. My favorite foods are tacos, mashed potatoes, and meatballs – not necessarily in that order. I have always had a love for animals, in fact, my favorite has always been a hippopotamus! As you can probably tell, I can strike up a conversation with anyone. Something that most people know about me is that I am really clumsy– so much so I was given the nickname Stumbleina!

My favorite charity is St. Jude Children’s hospital, I always make an effort to donate blood whenever I can. I also like to donate to the Pediatric Crohn’s Disease Foundation because it is a cause near and dear to my heart. That’s why my job is so rewarding, because here at GC Risk Advisors, we make giving back part of our daily lives!
