"While I was Chief Financial Officer for Igloo Products of Houston, Texas, I was introduced to Jess Alonso and his team by the CFO of Doskocil Manufacturing, also owned by the same private equity group as Igloo. Jess came highly recommended by Doskocil, where he served for 14 years as their broker.

Since we were concerned that we were being overcharged by the national broker that was servicing our account at that time, we asked Jess and his team to review our program. After a basic review, Jess' conservative estimate was that we should save approximately $500,000 on the renewal. After his work was concluded, we ultimately realized in excess of a $900,000 annual premium reduction, with coverage improvements from the expiring program.

While saving dollars is of the utmost importance to the C suite, quality service is of equal importance. Jess and his team were always proactive, responsive and ready to assist whenever needed, even with us being located in Houston while he and his team were in Dallas. I would highly recommend Jess and his team of professionals to any company seriously contemplating a change in brokers, as his hard work ethics, professionalism and integrity are second to none."

"I was introduced to Jess by a colleague, when I was CFO at Thomas Group, and quickly realized his expertise and character, when he displaced our broker of 17 years to become a trusted advisor. I would highly recommend Jess to anyone, as he is the consummate professional in his field and is always looking to do what is right for his clients."

" Jess and I met in 2004 at a CEO forum we both had joined, and since that time, he has become a mentor, an accountability partner and most recently, a service provider for our company. Over these years, I have witnessed his wise business and personal insights, genuine caring for people and his Servant Leadership heart. Not only is Jess a professional in his field, but he is also well respected by his peers."

"Jess provided excellent service to our company, at very competitive costs, over our four year association. He was always conscientious to ensure that we had the proper coverages that were priced right. I am pleased to recommend Jess and his team without reservation, and look forward to working with him again."

"As COO of Promotional Products Association International, we depended on Jess and his team to support us in developing an all inclusive program for our 7,000+ member companies, which required a thorough understanding of the business risks our industry faced, its potential impact on the businesses and the appropriate insurance solutions to mitigate those risks. Jess understood the many facets of our operations, since he had served as our broker since 1979. He is an expert in his field and has become a valued friend. I would recommend Jess to any business needing to explore their insurance needs."
