How did you get this idea?
It evolved. I was working for a firm that focused on insurance and employee benefits. I decided to open my own business. We added Talent Acquisition, HR and Payroll, Safety and Risk management, Health and Wellness, Business Insurance and Private Insurance. We do a lot of direct hires and temporary hires for companies as well. Over time, we tested, and we learned what our clients needed to run their businesses. So we naturally evolved into these and other services since we opened.
What are your clients like?
They’re very diverse. We work with businesses of all sizes and industries, such as manufacturing, distribution and many professional practices like medical groups, law firms and dental practices. What’s nice is that we have products for the companies, as well as products for the individuals. Auto, home, health and life insurance is an area where we shine as a company. We have multiple carriers and options. We rarely get beat.
What do you wish your customers knew?
We work for them. We are advisors for them. We want to make sure they are covered and that their risk is minimized. We will always do our best to offer the best innovative products for their needs and ensure that the process is as smooth as possible. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service and having gratitude, kindness and integrity.
Tell us about your team.
We have about 25 employees currently and we’re growing. Each of our divisions has support with experts in each of the departments.

I love to spend time with my lovely wife and three kids. I also have a passion for golf, tennis and fitness.
How’s the golf game these days?
Honestly, the golf game needs some work. But I do love to get out there with friends, clients or carriers. It’s a great game.
Do you have a motto?
I like to say that “Gratitude and kindness are the ultimate strengths.”
