I learned long ago that managing issues is far less costly than managing problems. Whether it is liability, safety, or issues associated with our fleet of vehicles, Kempkey has helped to identify them and provide solutions that have improved our risk management program. This has translated into saving time and ultimately reducing our insurance cost.

Kempkey’s focus on risk management and customer service was instrumental to our company’s stability and growth. Three years ago, they preformed a risk management audit that clearly identified several areas of concern. They helped prioritize the issues and implement corrective solutions. Since then, they have been a partner in providing education, training and consulting to help manage risk and associated expenses.

I transferred Honig Vineyard & Winery’s insurance business to Kempkey because I realized that as a company they understood the wine business, understood the insurance risks facing the industry, and they cared that Honig was properly insured. Kempkey stays current on the issues of the insurance industry and they keep me informed through personal conversations, their website, and their risk bulletins. I continue to be pleased with their personal service and feel comfortable that Honig is properly insured.

“Avoiding accidental losses; or recovering from them should they occur, is an important part of our overall business planning process. Going beyond insurance, KIS continuously supports our risk management process through their seminars, supervisor training workshops and OSHA compliance consulting. Their organized approach to delivering these resources has helped us prioritize risks and implement effective measures to mitigate potential losses.
