A broker supplies clients with solutions to their biggest risks — through insurance, preventative practices and more. That’s what a broker does. But a Power Broker? They do that while striving for the mission of their clients.

For Daren Moran, CFO, Capital Area IU #15, his broker needed to understand and support the population of his school: “Josh [Daly] goes way beyond that,” he said.

When IU #15 had a winter coat drive, Daly didn’t just send along a coat or two. He packed his car and drove the hour-and-a-half commute to the school to hand-deliver them to the kids.

“That’s Josh,” said Moran. “He supports us and our mission.” Of course, Daly still supplies risk mitigation tools as any broker would; he was able to work with IU #15 to create a cyber insurance program that would help cover some of its smallest districts.

“These smaller, more rural schools don’t have the same [cyber] resources or expertise on staff as a larger district might.”

Because of this, cyber policies can cost them a pretty penny. But Daly had a solution: “He worked with us to create a program that was able to offer similar coverage to everyone in our region,” said Moran.

Client Tammy Stouffer, CFO, Chambersburg Area School District, said, “This year, there was a concern that, because of a misunderstanding of industry terminology, an incident may not be covered by one of our insurance providers. Josh advocated on our behalf and provided information … Ultimately, the provider covered the incident.”
