As Assurex Global President and CEO Jim Hackbarth explained, “Our organization is unique in that we can operate with incredible flexibility to meet client expectations because each individual Partner is independently owned. Because of this entrepreneurial environment, our Partners bring some truly dynamic ideas to the table. Our board is challenged to harness this energy and enthusiasm and have created some outstanding collaborative projects as a result.”
