We have positioned Heartland Security Insurance Group to be the employer of choice because that results in us being the organization of choice to our customers. Our companies have diversified into virtually every aspect of the risk management process. This affords us the opportunity to meet the demanding needs of our most complex clients while allowing for a multitude of career opportunities for our associates. Our firm has 56 internal stockholders and significant ownership by our Employee Stock Ownership Plan. By recruiting and maintaining the very best and brightest insurance talent, our various divisions have been able to develop virtually every risk management product and service available in the marketplace. I’m proud of the ten, twenty, and even thirty-year milestones that many of our associates reach. Through their tenure, they are able to provide continuity to our clients’ complex insurance programs. Our companies have been blessed over the years, and I am very fortunate to be associated with so many outstanding professionals.
