Bridge Specialty Insurance Brokerage (BSIB), who provides access to an extensive range of wholesale and specialty insurance solutions, is excited to announce the opening of its Dallas, TX office. The new office will provide additional capabilities for the retail partners that currently work with Bridge Specialty Group (BSG) businesses in Texas: South & Western, Hull & Co., Texas Security General, Combined Group Insurance Services and Graham-Rogers Insurance. BSIB Dallas will not only add a national-focused brokerage capability to complement the current binding and regional brokerage capabilities for the current BSG Central Region, but they will also focus on larger complex placements in both casualty and property.
The BSIB – Dallas office features a team of highly experienced insurance professionals who are deeply familiar with the South Central and Midwest markets providing solutions that address the specific needs of the region. With that, the team leverages the size and market clout of BSIB and has access to major markets around the globe through its network of more than 200 insurance carriers.
Jim Bishop, who is currently the office leader for Hull & Co. Texas, a Bridge Specialty Group agency, is taking on the responsibility of leading the new BSIB – Dallas office. Jim brings over 30 years of experience in the Texas marketplace with extensive experience in sales and underwriting with a specific focus on growing and developing wholesale operations.
“The collaboration of the BSIB-Dallas team and existing Bridge offices in the region brings with it the depth and specialized capabilities from a national and local perspective bringing a broader set of solutions to our existing Bridge Specialty Group customers in the Central Region,” says Stephen M. Boyd, president of Bridge Specialty Group.
John Vedder, regional leader for Bridge Specialty Insurance Brokerage, stated, “It’s exciting to expand BSIB’s footprint into the Texas region. With Jim Bishop’s leadership, we are excited about the future success of the BSIB – Dallas office and the value it will bring to our customers and partners.”
