Rhonda Mack, Equine Insurance
Rhonda’s entry showed how she kept her clients’ animals covered and cared for through the heightened uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “Rhonda is an amazing professional who is outstanding in her field. She helped our farm and family continue to be a standout in the equine community,” a client said.
Thompson Mackey, Cyber Insurance
Thompson was recognized for his ability to have a primary carrier issue a claim payment to a client within 15 days of loss. The quick resolution was greatly appreciated by the client, who remarked, “In the last year, he helped me place programs for two clients…in both cases, he engaged quickly and had the sale completed in six weeks’ time at a reasonable cost.”
Chris Moore, Farm, Ranch, Equine & Livestock
Chris’ specific knowledge of his clients’ business, risks and policies helped set him apart for recognition as a Power Broker. “Chris works for us,” a client said. “He understands our farm and family goals and needs.”
Jake Perata, Hospitality
Jake’s clients say there isn’t a better advocate for those in the hospitality industry. “Jake was able to get us the limits we had in the past with much lower premiums than the incumbent broker and also we were alerted to some coverage gaps that we had in our current policies. We feel better educated and confident in our coverages with Jake.”
Brian Tanner, Energy
Brian’s team approach not only sets him apart, but helped him provide satisfying service to one construction client, who remarked, “Brian and his team won our insurance and surety brokerage. They did a thorough review of our existing program and uncovered a significant gap in liability coverage, which cascaded through the [six-figure] tower.”

Christophe stands out for more than his Belgian roots; his intimate knowledge of the European insurance market and customs makes him invaluable to his clients. “He worked in the best interest of his clients, found discrepancies and tightened the solutions.”
