Ten Eyck Group Broker Greg Barcomb Recognized as a 2023 Renewable Energy Power Broker
Greg Barcomb, Senior Account Executive, Ten Eyck Group
“We’ve received very competitive pricing from Greg and his group, but just as important, he has gone out of his way on several occasions to help us,” said one client about the level of customer service he’s experienced with Greg Barcomb.
“As an example, we had to get several additional pieces of insurance for a large business loan. I sent the list of requirements to Greg, and he came back with several really good options. He then pushed for expedited approvals so that we could get the loan faster. He gave the bank regular updates on the timeline. Separately, when we hired an employee, [Greg] was the most knowledgeable person we knew for employment insurance and all the other state requirements.”
Underwriters don’t mind complexity per se, but novelty tends to give them pause, so Barcomb earned accolades for placing coverage for a highly unusual client. The company is a contractor that upgrades and retrofits buildings to make them more energy-efficient. It hires unskilled workers, especially those with checkered histories, and trains them for skilled trades.
“It’s green worker training and workforce development,” said the CFO, “with heavy requirements for liability and umbrella coverage. We had to place that coverage quickly and thoroughly to secure our contracts. And those were not just with the buildings but also with state and local officials. Our business is multifaceted, complex and very unusual. That made it a big challenge for Greg to explain who we are and what we do to the insurance companies. He did it successfully, and we are working.”
