Building a Lasting Relationship from Scratch
Starting a business from scratch is no easy task. When Bob Johnson, co-founder of Scratch Bakery, asked his mortgage broker for an insurance guy, he was connected with a fresh-out-of-college Tim McGonagle at United. Almost 20 years have passed, with hundreds of changes, updates, and lots of growth. “Tim knows my business,” Bob explains. “He’s spent time in the bakery and has a sense of our culture. We’ve developed a relationship and I can ask him for counsel and advice. We have a complicated portfolio and we get together annually to go over everything. The bottom line is we have a great relationship and they provide a great customer experience.”
When you run a small business, you wear a lot of hats. Your focus is on running your business… or businesses, not on your insurance. You need an insurance agent and an agency that can keep pace with your expansion and evolution as you emerge from start-up and grow to maturity. You need an agent that is part of your team, and rooting for your success.
