I am pleased to announce that Countrywide Brokerage became part of RT Specialty effective January 8, 2016. After providing our agents with insurance solutions for more than 17 years, the time has come for a change in a very positive direction.
I have been approached by potential buyers from time to time but the fit and timing were not right. Recently, when RT Specialty reached out, I was very intrigued. They are a company that shares goals that are similar to ours with a focus on excellent customer service and providing insurance solutions for the harder to place business, all while maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit.
Becoming part of RT Specialty will allow us to provide you with vast market access for products to benefit you and your customers. Our in house programs remain intact and we will have an opportunity to offer some additional binding contracts through RT Specialty’s relationships.
Rest assured that my entire team and I will remain on board to ensure continuity and continued superior customer service.
I want to close by sharing my heartfelt thanks to you for your loyalty and business over the years. It has been our pleasure to work with you and we look forward to continuing that close working relationship as we begin this exciting new chapter in our history together.
On behalf of my entire staff, we wish you a very Happy New Year.
Sue Brennan, President
