Bill Buckley has formed B&H Risk Services specializing in binding authority, brokerage and program commercial insurance business.
Online PR News – 05-June-2014 – Dallas, TX – CPro Associates has spun off its binding authority and Programs unit as a new company, B&H Risk Services, Inc., headed by William E. Buckley, who previously joined CPro in late 2013 to form and develop the new business unit. B&H focuses on binding authority, brokerage and program business.
“Our plan from the outset was to grow the binding authority business into a new company that would focus on these business segments, which was completed much faster than anticipated,” Buckley said. “We have enjoyed rapid success and now are able to write commercial insurance business in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, and we are continuously expanding our national footprint.”
Binding authority means B&H functions directly as the underwriter for insurance carriers. The direct line provides one-stop shopping and personalized service for agents. Carriers enjoy greater operating efficiencies, while gaining increased access to high-producing agents.
B&H Risk Services, Inc., also includes a brokerage component which enables the operation to handle accounts that fit into its binding markets or can be placed seamlessly into one of its brokerage markets.
Buckley brings more than 25 years of insurance experience including surplus lines, specialized programs, primary and reinsurance. Prior to the founding of B&H Risk Services, Buckley served as President and CEO of G. J. Sullivan Company, an excess and surplus lines brokerage in Orange County, Calif. During the past ten years, he led the company to double-digit, year-on-year premium and revenue increases through organic growth and acquisitions.
Buckley said B&H Risk Services has programs designed to provide coverage no other carrier will offer. B&H staff works with retail agents who control uniform books to develop a specialized programs that enable agents to capture additional business by offering superior coverage and price.
“Our team is experienced, driven, and motivated to succeed,” Buckley said. “We are not a traditional general agency, but an organization whose staff is empowered to provide our clients with solutions through superior service, creativity, and innovation.”
