Insurance Business America (IBA) has named MarshBerry as one of their magazine’s ‘Best of the Best 2015.’ The award recognizes the leading companies and products that support the industry as chosen by independent agents and brokers.

“I’m so honored that MarshBerry has been recognized by IBA and its readers as the ‘Best of the Best’ in the consulting category,” said John Wepler, chairman and CEO of MarshBerry. “We pride ourselves in the relationships that we build with our clients. The key to this is the exceptional team we’ve built. Their hard work and innovative spirit is what truly makes our organization the best of the best.”

IBA conducted a nationwide survey asking agents to rate companies and products that help them take their business to the next level. The report highlights 21 outstanding providers in seven areas: agency management systems, comparative rater/quoting tools, banking and finance, marketing, consulting, errors and omissions (E&O) coverage, and law firms.

“In an age of increasing specialization, the modern agency relies on any number of third-party service providers to free up staff time and allow everyone from principals to account managers to focus on the most important business of insurance,” said Mike Shipley, CEO of IBA publisher Key Media.
