Bryson’s 2023 Year in Review

We’re thrilled to present a snapshot of our achievements and milestones throughout 2023. As your strategic partner in insurance, we’ve remained committed to enhancing our services and delivering exceptional value to you and your clients, and we look forward to a successful 2024!

Claims Resolution Team: Managing Risk at its Core

Our claims resolution team has exemplified excellence in managing risk and safeguarding your interests through strategic resolutions. Here are three standout case studies showcasing the significant value they brought to our clients this year:

In six months, Bryson’s Risk Resolution Management Team collaborated with a home restoration company, delivering six-figure savings through reduced vehicle costs and total fleet expenditures. These early achievements foreshadow ongoing enhancements in claims management and negotiations, promising a more substantial impact on financial stability.

A premier event rental company faced high workers’ compensation rates due to past claims, leading to reliance on the State Fund. With their adept claims resolution team, Bryson facilitated a notable transformation, resulting in annual savings of $600k in the first year and a projected $1M in the second year.

Due Diligence Highlights

Throughout 2023, We Performed A Total of

60

Due Diligences

for Our Private Equity Partners

The Bryson Financial team was instrumental in our ability to move forward on the strategically important JonRie acquisition by our platform Markey Machine. Their lower middle market rep & warranty product was key to our feeling confident in the acquisition, and Bryson was uniquely positioned to provide the requisite coverage on a cost-effective and time-efficient basis. Their team made everything easy and walked us through each step of the process with a “can do/will do” client service attitude. Thanks, Bryon Financial team!”
