For Gary Lavery, there are two key ways he strives to deliver best-in-class service.

The first is providing continuous and proactive client communication and education. And the second is always going to bat for a client, regardless of the size of the issue at hand.

“We had been with the same broker for many years and decided to give another broker an opportunity for our business,” said George Whalen, CFO, Duggal Visual Solutions.

“Gary reviewed in detail our existing policies and discovered many coverage language issues as well as opportunities to reduce our premiums without sacrificing the amount or quality of coverage. It was very eye opening to us and the approach was very creative as well as thorough. I only wish I met him sooner.”

Lavery continuously strives to further master the industry by regularly being in each clients facilities and working with different stakeholders from all perspectives. He has found this to be a critical differentiator in allowing for a more fully informed perspective to be discussed with clients.

“Gary’s communication is very good. He is always willing to explain further details in the policies and processes,” said Leidy Lipson, general manager at International Foodsource.

“He thinks outside the box. Gary often shares past experiences in similar matters. He knows the market and likes to stay on top of new laws and regulations.”
