“Having someone who understands our business and can translate that in to the appropriate insurance coverage is a great addition to our team! If only I’d found you sooner…your knowledge and assistance through this process has been invaluable!”

— Controller / NC-based Cancer Research Organization


“While we previously had an insurance program we felt was adequate, JJ Wade & Associates quickly pointed out many areas where coverage could be improved and costs contained. Their knowledge of the technology industry was apparent from the beginning, which resulted in a greatly-improved insurance program and the comfort of dealing with an expert in my field.”

– James Sander, President / Shared Resources (Managed Services Provider)


“Diversified Insurance is an integral part of our risk management team and one of our most valued outside service providers. They have helped us enhance our insurance program to meet our needs as we have transitioned from a U.S. company to a global company with operations throughout the world. The value Diversified Insurance adds is not only in competitive premiums but more importantly from the comprehensive nature of the risk management program they have helped us develop.”

– Robert G. Hunter, VP Finance & Treasurer /1-800 CONTACTS, INC.


From Concept to Commercialization

“As we moved our product toward FDA approval and commercialization, AHM’s Innovation Risk Group gave us the expert contract review and exposure analysis needed to effectively manage our supply-side manufacturing risk.”

— Ed Timm, President and CEO / Mobius Therapeutics, LLC


From Seed Investment to IPO

“Serving as both investor and advisor, the venture capitalist must carefully protect the investments of limited partners and portfolio companies. AHM recognized those unique challenges and delivered comprehensive and competitively priced coverage’s, including VCAP liability, which provided us with tremendous assurance.”

— Thomas C. Melzer / RiverVest Venture Partners


“We have been working with Avatar in the biotechnology space for 5 years. Their industry knowledge and understanding of the requirements of our member companies is first class. They also have a broad range of insurance industry knowledge and contacts. Finally both AusBiotech and our member companies have received excellent customer service from Avatar.”

— Glenn Cross, Chief Operating Officer / AusBiotech Limited


“BioMelbourne Network and Avatar have together built a highly productive, mutually beneficial relationship over approximately 7 years now, that has delivered significant value to Victoria’s biotechnology industry. Avatar is, without doubt, the biotechnology industry’s gold standard in insurance advice and service. The biotech industry in Victoria recognises and rewards organisations and individuals who have a demonstrated commitment, proven understanding and passion for the sector. Biotechnology is a relationship-driven industry sector and personal recommendations are probably the most valuable currency. Avatar has invested well in identifying and building strong networks of clients, supporters and industry platforms upon which they can demonstrate and deliver the outstanding service that this organisation is known for in Australia.”

— Michelle Gallaher, Chief Executive Officer / BioMelbourne Network, Inc.


“Regarding our specialized insurance needs in a technology related industry, we have found that Doug has a broad range of experience and information that has been extremely beneficial to us. His expertise has made a previously difficult task more manageable. He consistently invests the time to understand our industry and specific needs.”

— Chuck Cheatham, Senior VP and CFO / Brierley + Partners


“The RHSB Technology team was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when it came to identifying and explaining the threats related to cyber liability, network security and privacy issues. They provided solutions to mitigate our exposure and reduce our total cost of risk. Furthermore, their outsourced risk management approach and recommendations relating to contractual risk transfer helped mitigate additional potential liability. We certainly recommend RHSB as a risk consultant and insurance broker for other technology-oriented companies.”

— Melanie Crutcher, Controller / Pariveda Solutions


“Version 1 has been in business for the last seventeen years. Over that time, we have employed the services of a number of different insurance brokers. When we started working with Keaney Insurance Brokers Ltd, we immediately recognised they were different. For a start, they really understood our business and were able to work closely with us. Policy quotes and renewals are relatively simple matters, but it’s when it comes to the more complex procedures, like proposals to our clients and subsequent contract negotiations, Keaney Insurance really came into their own. They work closely, efficiently and effectively with us and have become more business advisors than simply insurance brokers.”

– Justin Keatinge, Managing Director / Version 1


“We had the largest broker in the world before we replaced them with Costello & Sons. Our renewal process was completely different and much more efficient with Costello & Sons. They set up a pre-renewal strategy with us. Through the process we received progress reports so there were no unexpected bumps in the road. We were able to make an informed decision well before the renewal date versus at the last minute. The end result was an insurance program that we understood and could cost justify!”

Lynn Walsh, EVP & General Counsel / Internet Brands (formerly
