I've been affiliated with the Concannon Group for over 20 years serving in the capacity of CFO for 2 companies. Jim Concannon has always been a "hands on" Insurance Broker to ensure our companies are educated and understand the risks associated with the current climate, new lines of business or future threats on the horizon. The Concannon Group was instrumental in assisting our company to drive down our workers comp cost from close to $1 million dollars to slightly over $250K in less than 7 years. This was Phenomenal!!!
The Concannon Insurance Agency is by far the best insurance brokerage company I've worked with. They are more than an agency, they are a trust advisor. They continue to take the time to get to know us as both individuals and a business, and offer tailored products and services based on our specific needs. By simplifying the process and providing the right tools and information, we were able to make the right decisions and focus on what matters. I would highly recommend The Concannon Insurance Agency to any small business owner.
DynaLabs has been with The Concannon Insurance Agency since 2003. From the outset, their sincere desire to see clients well-protected AND successful has been evident. Through the years, The Concannon Insurance Agency has made certain that DynaLabs was receiving the most comprehensive coverage at an optimal price. For example, a couple of years in, Jim brought us a less expensive insurer, but maintained the same level of coverage; practically unheard of in the business landscape today. This agency is our “Go To” for all things insurance.
My company, Senior Services Unlimited, has been with The Concannon Insurance Agency since 2006. Several other companies have tried to match their level of expertise, service, and pricing; however, none have come close to matching what they can offer. They have a sincere interest in their clients' success, something that is hard to find in any industry today. The Concannon Insurance Agency is by far the best at what they do.
