By Sandy Laycox Posted on April 28, 2017

As a complement to our written feature, Tough-Minded in a Soft Market, we asked several members to comment on issues including the economy, technology and client expectations. Here are some thoughts from Dan Klaras, President of Assurance Agency; Brian Hetherington, CEO & Co-Chairman of ABD Insurance and Financial Services; and Jon Loftin, President & COO of MJ Insurance.

When rates are low, growth has to be higher.

The booming Northern California economy is good for business.

As small agencies are acquired, they gain new competitive advantages.

Jon Loftin, Dan Klaras, and Brian Hetherington discuss the on-demand world, data analytics and self-service.

The unique risks in the sharing economy market pose new opportunities.
