Blake Giannisis had a small window to get up-to-speed on the complex account of a technology manufacturer. But you would never know it, said a risk manager for the company.

“Blake handled the renewal as if he had been handling our account for years,” the risk manager said.

“The level of knowledge and the expertise in advising us on the program was exceptional.”

Giannisis offered clear guidance throughout a compressed renewal process and laid out several options in time for the company to consider them, the risk manager added.

“We truly got to see the impact that making different decisions would have on the premium, as well as data points for detailing back to the CFO and board what had been achieved.”

Clients also have been impressed by Giannisis’ relationships with insurance markets.

“He’s able to bridge the gap between insurer and insured in a way that I haven’t seen other brokers be able to,” the risk manager said. The end result is a stronger relationship between the markets and the company. Giannisis worked with the telecom company to reassess its tolerance for risk in light of new budgetary goals.

“What’s great about Blake is he anticipates everyone’s needs,” the risk manager said.

“He’s not the type of broker you have to worry about. He’s going to go above and beyond.”
