Ventura Insurance Brokerage, Inc. Announces Willis North America Diversity Partnership
Responding to the growing demand by public entities and corporate businesses for supplier diversity solutions, New York City-based Ventura Insurance Brokerage, Inc. recently welcomed the opportunity to partner with global insurance provider Willis North America. Owned by Christine Sadofsky, CPCU, Ventura was selected to become a part of Willis Open, a new practice group that offers world-class resources and industry-leading expertise to premier women- and minority-owned enterprises.
The partnership with Willis Open adds new capabilities to Ventura’s wide-ranging customized and cost-effective insurance products and services. “Our clients will now enjoy enhanced access to the resources of a global risk advisor, insurance and reinsurance broker. The partnership positions us well to serve large enterprises with interests on every continent and in every time zone,” says Sadofsky, a 23-year veteran insurance broker who purchased Ventura in 2004. “Given the increasing importance of supplier diversity to firms across all sectors, this is a winning platform for our clients.”
“Today, more organizations are seeking quality solutions that include women- and minority-owned partners as part of their overall diversity and corporate social responsibility strategy,” explains Willis Executive Vice President Phillip Styles. “The Willis Open initiative allows companies that work with us to identify the very best such enterprises in their marketplace, like Ventura Insurance Brokerage, that have technically superior client service capabilities.”
We Speak the Language of Business
Competing successfully in the city’s super-charged market, Sadofsky and her team built the privately owned and independent company on the premise that Ventura would serve as much more than a source of risk management solutions for personal and general commercial insurance. It has become a trusted advisor to its clients on a wide range of issues.
“We are more than just brokers. We are risk management professionals who know how to speak the language of business. Our staff is probably the most stable in the nation, allowing us the luxury of building strong, long-term relationships. Because we know our clients and their respective industries so well, we can be proactive and dynamic. Clients are confident we’ll provide meaningful advice about decisions they are considering regarding expansion, hiring, relocating and more,” says Sadofsky. “They trust us to evaluate all of their options objectively, implement a sensible and customized insurance program that’s best for them, monitor it and adjust it to meet changing needs.”
