Global Energy and Large Construction Companies Need Specialized Insurance

Finding an insurance brokerage that understands a specialized industry is difficult. A newly launched insurance brokerage specializes in representing the global energy and large construction industries.

[USPRwire, Mon Jul 03 2006] Helmer Risk Management, LLC, a specialized insurance brokerage for the global energy and large construction industries, solves a major problem for those industries -- they understand specialized needs.

Scott A. Helmer, formerly affiliated with Hill Insurance Services in Scottsdale, Ariz., recently launched Helmer Risk Management, LLC, headquartered in Phoenix.

"Our mission is to be the leading provider of specialized insurance brokerage for the global energy and large construction industries," said Helmer, president. "Our goal each day is to provide an outstanding customer experience with a personal touch."

Helmer's success is based on developing long-term relationships with clients by delivering policies and endorsements on time without error and conducting comprehensive annual reviews that allow clients to better manage their risks. Clients also benefit from the company's specialization in the energy and construction industries, which allows the brokerage to better understand the complex contract issues and difficult environmental concerns facing clients.

"We believe personal contact and service is the cornerstone of our success," Helmer said.

The company represents clients throughout the United States, many with international operations, in the following sectors:

Pipeline contractors
Oil and gas companies
Alternative energy companies
Mining operations
Commercial general contractors
Energy and construction-related support companies

"Many insurance agencies try to be all things to all clients in order to reach their sales and production goals. They write personal lines, commercial lines, life and health insurance. We do not. We believe that to be competent in all areas is not possible. Our goal is not to be the largest agency, but to truly be the best at what we do. Specialization provides us with that opportunity," Helmer explained.

By focusing on a segment of the industry, Helmer believes the company will better know and understand its clients' needs, and will be able to negotiate the best terms for coverage from insurance companies. He added that Helmer Risk represents its clients actively during any claims process.

Helmer Risk also does not charge clients additional fees to service their accounts. Helmer said many national insurance brokers receive compensation from the insurance carriers via a commission, and then turn around and charge their clients additional fees to handle the account. Helmer does not do this.

"Helmer Risk is an alternative to the national insurance brokerage houses, offering a more personalized level of service with focused specialization on our client's type of business operations," Helmer said.
