It is rare to find someone in Brian's field that has the ability and willingness to listen, learn, and understand the government contracting client's concerns and needs instead of just selling a pre-packaged suite of products. His promise to continue to be a resource and sounding board even if the client chose to purchase elsewhere, was a welcome and refreshing offer.

Brian Smith is absolutely the best to work with--outstanding risk management partner. He has a passion for client needs and a sense for professional service delivery that makes him stand out from the crowded insurance broker/agent field. He takes into consideration many aspects of business and their related risks in an effort to capture the true needs of the client. In other words, he doesn’t just provide an insurance solution, but he also makes sure our risks are understood and well managed. Brian would make a great addition as your insurance broker.

CEO, Global Dynamic Consulting, Inc.
I have had the pleasure of know and working with Brian for more than five years. We first became acquainted when he asked me to work with him to find an international medical solution for one of his defense contractor clients. He worked with me so that I had a better understanding of the unique needs for these types of employees so that I could provide better solutions.

Since I have gone on my own as a broker, Brian has been willing to meet with me to help better address the opportunities in my market. He is generous with his time and his advice.

"Brian understands our business model and he understands the industry. When you do government contracting it’s a different industry and not every one can fully embrace and understand what you do. However Brian is excellent at this. He was able to take our company and our business model and ensure that we didn’t have any exposure..."
