During this time, we have grown steadily, expanded services, and adapted to the changing environment of the insurance industry as well as to our clients’ needs. Our decision to partner with HUB International was the next logical step for us in this journey, and we are confident this decision will pay dividends in the level of service we can offer our clients.
