People Matterback to top
By Tracey Carragher, in Company History
You may have the best processes in the business. But, at the end of the day, people matter. The trust created between a client and the insurance advisor is at the heart of success.
It’s something you can’t fool with. If you mess up once–only once–your reputation dies. Even worse, you lose the pride and joy you enjoy by going to work every day.
Pride and joy! At work, you say! What an alien concept for someone deep in the morass of corporate politics or stymied by corporate silos. Pride and joy comes from a common vision. It can be very tough to be part of a company that is peopled with professionals who don’t have a common vision–or who lack a vision at all.
At Breckenridge we have pride and joy. When we formed this firm a little more than a year ago, we decided we would only associate with people of a common mind. We have walked away from acquisitions with people and organizations who don’t share our set of ethics or our culture. Indeed, we have walked away from multi-million dollar producers because we knew we just couldn’t mesh.
We like our clients and we like each other. We are working with transparency in an industry that is now backing off from those kinds of commitments. We are, in short, something of a different breed, and we like to think, a different level of professionalism.
Clients who demand a $300 bottle of wine probably don’t want to work with us. We’re looking for the kind of people who enjoy working through issues and solving tough problems. We seek people honestly excited about finding that different solution or the unique approach.
If you get charged up by your clients, challenged by the people you work with, and motivated by the process of finding meaningful solutions to risk, we are the right place for you.
