Ira Jolley has a true “passion” for striving to have a complete understanding of his clients’ business. Through his understanding of the clients’ business, its strategic objectives, direction and risk factors associated with those business strategies and objectives, he is in a much better position to negotiate the best possible rate structure and risk management program with his carriers’ underwriters. This “passion” also creates very strong bonds with his clients, many of whom have become lifelong friends. “When you do business with people that you have strong relationships with, you become much more than a business partner, or simply a vendor. You care deeply about their goals and objectives and sometimes they become your own. When my clients become more successful, and to think that I may have helped in some way with that success, is one key indicator that I am achieving one of my main goals”. From rate negotiation and program creation, to PERSONALLY getting involved in the claims process, Ira Jolley is there for his clients.
