It is an exciting place to work because there is definitely a culture of love, serving, and helping others. People at Ansay & Associates are very passionate about the insurance industry and serving our clients.
- Describe your approach to working with your clients.
My approach to working with clients is to find ways to help them become the best insurance risk they can possibly become. For every client it is different, but that is one of the amazing benefits of this industry. My goal is to have insurance carriers fighting to write their business vs. me fighting to find an insurance carrier to write their business.
- What is one of your favorite client stories?
One of my favorite client stories was earning the business at HyPro, Inc.
This was an example of persistence as it took me to develop a relationship with them over a 7 year period before I was finally able to earn their business. When I originally wrote the account, HyPro had about 150 employees and paid $200,000 in premium and now after 18 years of handling their account, they have grown to over 1,000 employees and pay over $1,000,000 in annual premiums.
The most satisfying part of working with HyPro has been helping them turn their Workers Compensation program around. HyPro's experience mod was 1.65 when we started working with them and with hard work, we were able to help them cut their experience mod in half and now they are consistently in the .80 range.
This is saving them Hundreds of Thousands of dollars a year on their insurance program.
- Do you have any area of specific focus in terms of industry or market?
Manufacturing, Metal Working, Contracting, and Wisconsin Public School Districts
