Whether that is between a salesperson and a customer, two businesspeople working together or a person providing a service to another, relationships are fundamental to a fruitful relationship. Insurance is no different. At Hardenbergh Insurance Group, that holds especially true for professionals like Christopher Powell. Perhaps one of the best examples of this in action is what HIG has done for Malamut & Associates, a law firm that has worked with HIG for many years. Adam Malamut has known Chris Powell for over 25 years, initially while working together at a business in Cherry Hill and maintaining a friendship over the years since. That friendship led to Adam approaching Chris (and HIG) to handle their insurance business, knowing what kind of person Chris was and trusting him to handle things in the right way. Since that time, HIG has provided Malamut & Associates with a number of services, meeting with Adam regularly each year to discuss exposures and risks. As the firm has grown, so has the work that HIG has done for them, engaging with each of their expansions to help handle professional liability, among other things. As Malamut grows, so do their risk management needs, and HIG has been there to help with every step. Adam, a hard-working entrepreneur, continually looks for opportunities and partnerships, but he doesn’t lose focus of the fact that carrying sufficient coverage and providing benefits to staff is a key to successful growth. handling your insurance needs?
