EPIC Insurance Broker Brian Tanner Recognized as a 2021 Traditional Energy Power Broker
Brian Tanner, Principal, EPIC Insurance Brokers
“Our company is in construction, which means a lot of risk. We switched brokers a year ago; Brian Tanner and his team won our insurance and surety brokerage. They present themselves as a team, and all our significant interaction includes the team,” said one satisfied client.
“They did a thorough review of our existing program and uncovered a significant gap in liability coverage, which cascaded through the [six-figure] tower. They were able to obtain broadened pollution coverage on the auto policy and were also able to have prior versions of the additional-insured endorsements put back on the general liability program retroactively. They negotiated better pricing, deductibles, and coverage in the primary layers of insurance in a challenging environment. They have provided me with ability to interact and gain deeper understanding and knowledge of the various insurance programs that we have, including marine, management liability, cyber, and aviation,” the client continued.
Another client related that he met Tanner through the client’s trade association.
“He offered to review our coverage to identify any gaps or overlaps in coverage, and after I got to know him I asked him to come in and have a look at our program and our company. Our industry is highly specialized in terms of risk and operations, and he is very much on top of all that. We ended up giving him the business. He got us with a new carrier, one that is specialized in our industry. We just went through our first renewal in a very tough market and are very pleased with Brian and what he has done for us.”
