The pride of an endorsement

It’s unusual how expertise starts to develop. It seems to begin with becoming increasingly interested and engaged around a topic or discipline. You find yourself spending more and more time fine-tuning and learning about this new interest. And, one day it dawns on you — you are in possession of a unique talent and competency which seems to be appreciated by others. This happened to us in 1993, when the Western Suppliers Association (WSA) asked us to serve as the exclusive broker for their association, as well as for their individual members. This was proof to us that we were truly bringing unique resources and results to business owners in the wholesale industry.

Wholesalers' Broker of Choice

As we fast forward 17 years, we are proud to have not only retained this endorsement, but to have been privileged with an additional endorsement. This occurred when the Western Suppliers Association asked our Employee Benefits Division to serve as the exclusive broker for their member community.

It's been two decades since we originally earned the trust of the WSA. We continue to enhance and perfect the deliverables all business owners value who are charged with the responsibility of securing smartly designed, competitively priced insurance programs.

A POWERFUL EQUATION

Our business plan is built around an expertise in very specific niches. When you combine this know-how with the fact we have more professional designations per employee than any other insurance broker in California, our intellectual capital becomes something to reckon with.

Our genuine appreciation for people and our limitless passion to be the best in our business is a rather powerful motivator in the relationships we enjoy with our clients. It’s a commitment to be a “trusted adviser” rather than simply another vendor selling insurance products.
