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.

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.

LEADERSHIP
Brian Smith, CIC, ARM

I stand behind a very simple mantra - "I may not tell you what you want to hear, but it will always be the truth."   When it comes to insurance, trust is everything.

The expertise that is brought to the table is founded on years of experience from the military, loss control practice, safety consulting, and insurance placements.  It is called "Risk Reconnaissance".  Clients are served with a specific approach to risk that is based on a discovery process involving executive leadership, operations, business growth, and risk appetite.  Not all risks are the same, and we never treat them as such.

From a government & defense contractor perspective, our capabilities stretch far beyond insurance placement.  With years of experience in the Government Contracting risk arena, we don't chase the ball across the field - we position ourselves on the field where the ball is coming.  In other words, together, we anticipate risk and plan for it.
