For its community-service efforts, the firm
was recognized by the Bellevue Chamber of
Commerce as a 2011 Top Corporate Citizen,
one of 10 businesses to receive such an honor.
As for winning the Commercial Agency
of the Year Award, Collins says it helps to
justify the hard work many have put in
during a difficult economic cycle that has
witnessed some drop-off in revenues because insurance purchasing is down.
“We’re very flattered by the recognition,” says Collins. “We’ve weathered a
lot of different storms. We do great work
everyday. This is good timing—a reaffirmation of all that we do well and consistently
within our organization. It is something to
feel really good about in what is still a very,
very tough time.” NU

oldest clients, with a relationship dating
back to 1945. Bartlett sponsored the national Irish team when it came to Philadelphia
to play the U.S. Tomahawks on March 19
in the Donnybrook Cup in an event that
attracted both TV and print exposure for
Bartlett. The brokerage now acts as the insurance broker for USA Rugby League LLC.
The firm also has plans to tap into the
expertise of its associates to position the brokerage as a thought leader in matters of global
insurance and risk management. “When it
comes to structuring and managing global
insurance programs, we have some of the
best minds in the business, both here in the
U.S. and overseas,” Bartlett says.
Bartlett has a host of initiatives underway to showcase its insurance knowledge
including webinars, the publication of
white papers and taking on more public-speaking engagements.
By communicating its global expertise
to current and potential clients, Bartlett
anticipates continuous growth and expansion, even in the current tough market. “As
more middle-market companies expand to
overseas markets for production and sales,
the need for a global independent broker to
service their needs increases,” Bartlett says.
“In this regard, there is ‘clear blue water’
between us and the competition.” NU
