For just over 40 years, Harmon Dennis Bradshaw has been on a mission to provide superior insurance and risk management solutions to its clients at competitive premiums and with outstanding service. Harmon Dennis Bradshaw now extends well beyond the River Region. A Birmingham division was established in 2010 and it has grown by more than 60 percent in just the last couple of years. HDB also has Korean bilingual personnel for our commercial and personal lines client needs. Harmon Dennis Bradshaw is one of the largest insurance agencies in the state but is still privately owned.
NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES:
WHAT ARE THE COMPANY’S PRIMARY SERVICES?
Commercial property and liability insurance and group benefits. HDB’s total written premium is approximately $90 million with 84 percent being commercial property and liability business, 15 percent group benefits and 1 percent personal lines.
WHO ARE THE COMPANY’S PRIMARY CLIENTS?
Commercial businesses of all sizes and spanning all industry segments. The company focuses on a number of different industries—manufacturers, retail, social service, health care, construction, agriculture, real estate, hospitality and food processing industries—and there is no industry that makes up more than 20 percent of our revenue.
WHAT SETS HARMON DENNIS BRADSHAW APART?
There are a lot of great insurance agencies in Alabama, but unlike most of those agencies, HDB has incentive programs in place, including a profit-sharing plan, that trickle down to the employees to reward them and incentivize them to do their best. We are successful because our customers recognize that our employees are going the extra mile on their behalf each and every day, whether that means getting a better premium for them, improving their coverage, implementing a risk management tool or making sure a claim is resolved in a quick and equitable manner. The company also makes it a priority to support various non-profits in the River Region.
WHAT HAS DRIVEN THE COMPANY’S SUCCESS?
In a word, teamwork. People make a company, and without each and every one of the employees at HDB pushing themselves to give more, we wouldn’t have been as successful as we have been.
HOW HAS TECHNOLOGY CHANGED YOUR BUSINESS?
We implemented imaging software and are now “paperless,” which has helped us become more efficient and mobile. All account managers and assistants have dual monitors to take full advantage of the efficiencies of software systems. We now have the ability to send clients forms that require signatures via electronic signature.
