MTS has been a customer of CGIS since its beginning. It gives us great confidence to know our insurance brokers, care more about us, than how the business may benefit them. They work hard to show us they value our business. Sometimes MTS has needed a quick turn around on something, and even if it is over a weekend, they have been there for us.

One thing I value working with CGIS, is the relationship we have built over the years. It goes beyond insurance to valued relationship. We know that MTS is in good hands and we never have to question if they are giving us sound advice, and giving us a policy that meets the need.

Being in the energy sector has its challenges, and to have knowledgeable people to handle our business, who understand the business, is a great asset. CGIS’ core values line up with MTS in honesty and integrity, a must foundation for this relationship. I would recommend CGIS to others without a doubt.

It takes more than good service to have a client for life. CGIS has more. That is why the Barto Companies/Signal Hill Companies have been with CGIS since the brokerage started.  Our servicing team has provided exceptional responsiveness, guidance and support, loss-prevention programs, and investment returns.

CGIS’s knowledge and understanding of the energy sector has proven valuable in assisting us with contract advice; especially in the area of contract review.  In those rare instances when a claim situation seems to be developing, CGIS is by our side, advocating for us, and mitigating the financial impact on our firm.   Their outstanding guidance and practical suggestions on how to keep small problems from growing into larger ones is instrumental to our growth and success.

And while it takes more than just good service, being a client for life is not possible unless it is extraordinary, and CGIS’ service is just that. We enjoy partnering with CGIS for all our insurance and risk management needs.

As the owner of a small business, I have a lot of hats to wear. Because of my trust in Bart Le Fevre, Kristen Kang and the support team at CGIS, one I don’t have to wear is that of an “insurance expert”. I rely on Bart and the excellent support staff at CGIS to not only advise me about the important changes in the insurance industry, but also to act as my representative, shopping my insurance needs to competitive suppliers for the most cost effective and comprehensive insurance coverage tailored to the energy industry.  Of all the professionals I lean on in my day-to-day operation, CGIS ranks up there with my attorney, accountant and banker as a key advisor.

CGIS has done a great job handling our insurance needs both domestically and in Europe.  We have been very pleased with their knowledge and support.

Bart, you have done an amazing job at taking a somewhat commodity business and turning it into a very customer focused multi disciplined risk management practice.  While you have not focused solely on one industry, your focus on the energy business has allowed you to better anticipate and offer protection to those of us that are managing similar risks in this space. By spending time listening to your client’s problems, you have been able to create a productive network of business executives which then allows business relationships to be formed among your customers which certainly benefits all parties involved.  We at Neos Geosolutions certainly appreciate the introductions you have made for us and we anticipate many of those relationships will develop into fruitful business relationships. As our business has evolved over the past two years from an international E&P Company to a technology based exploration service company, your firm has been extremely helpful and flexible in helping us to manage our changing risk profile.  In addition, you have been very proactive in suggesting new protections to address risks that some of your other service company clients have dealt with over the years.  This proactive approach to managing risk and potential risk is not something I have seen from your competitors and it is much appreciated.

I wish you the best of luck as you look to expand your practice.
