ISU Insurance Brokers Host Summit for Tow Insurance Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2015) - ISU Insurance Services, a national Property & Casualty brokerage specializing in Towing, hosted its first Tow Insurance Industry training program at Pro-Star Towing in Milpitas, CA.

During its two-day sessions, a panel of CEOs and other tow industry executives engaged with insurance company underwriters and select ISU brokers to discuss major insurance concerns encountered by the tow industry. Peter Fuerst of the International Institute of Towing & Recovery provided technical education to the attendees. Tow industry participants in a panel discussion included Ted Dixon, CEO, Pro-Star Towing (Milpitas, CA), Lisa Cahillane, COO, Ellison's Towing (Mountain View, CA), Jeff Brammer, CEO Miller O'Brien Towing (Pacifica, CA) and Robert Inskeep, CEO, Yarbrough Bros. (Santa Rosa, CA).

ISU has created exclusive carrier relationships for the tow industry with highly regarded insurance companies. The goal of the summit was to build communication and understanding among these carriers, ISU brokers and the tow industry. The desired outcome of the summit was to create better informed underwriting decisions resulting in a more stable marketplace, competitive pricing and long-term partnerships among insurance companies, tow industry clients and insurance brokers.

"I believe every risk management program has potential to create business advantages. For the tow industry, this occurs when we couple understanding of the risks faced by this industry with our expertise and carrier relationships. As one of the largest privately held brokerage networks in the US, ISU leverages its size and market influence to solve tough insurance issues. We have established strong carrier and client relationships, bringing together the right people, resources and insurance market access," said Ken Johnson Managing Director of ISU Insurance Services.

"I am very pleased with the results of ISU's summit. Prior to this event, I was surprised at how little each group knew about each other despite being closely tied. Everyone walked away from this meeting with a better understanding and respect for our respective industries," remarked Ted Dixon, CEO of Pro-Star Towing.

As an exciting outcome of the summit, ISU, in partnership with the carrier market dedicated to this industry, will be releasing new safety programs for the tow industry in 2015. Based on input from industry leaders, the ISU Tow Program will continue to be refined to meet the ever-changing and challenging needs faced by the tow industry.
