What’s new at your company? "We are doing well in a very competitive environment for property and casualty insurance and employee benefits consulting. One reason is because of our connection with Associated Bank. We can add more value to clients with each interaction because of the products and services we offer."
What are the most interesting issues you work with clients on? "We work closely with clients on controlling their workers compensation costs. We provide creative solutions to risk management, monitoring trends, helping establish early return-to-work programs, OSHA issues, getting network discounts, working with safety committees and more. With our large customer base we draw on the experiences of a number of companies to offer suggestions solving issues and developing programs that work."
What is the most difficult or challenging project you’ve been involved with? "Right now, the economy is a drag on many businesses. With decreasing sales, they need to save money on insurance while not elevating their risk. Finding the right mix can be a challenge, and requires a hard look at cash flow and business prospects in the near term."
