Cold call... We target the lumber industry so I like to think they had heard of our reputation (maybe wishful thinking??). I have a WC company that will kill their current rates (11.30 vs. 16.85 per hundred) on the sawmill class, but it is very selective underwriting; I just need one more year behind as 2011 was brutal for them and is still showing up. In the short run I might not can help them, in the long run I definitely can. Guess we will see how it shakes out in a week or so.

I landed a Large NYC union trade contractor with terrible loss history and being dropped from admitted market. The best their broker could do at the time was $1,250,000, I saved them 150k on the XS alone and was rewarded with a BOR on the GL quote. Since then I've brought their costs back down to reality but it was fun while it lasted......

2014-$1,100,000 GL/XS
2015-$680,000 GL/XS
2016-$400,000 GL/XS

Hearing this put fire back into my soul. Getting burned out on the personal lines grind, the customers it attracts, and the peanuts for how hard I work. I am seriously getting into commercial. Thanks for the inspiration.
