The private ownership-style platform we have creates a vested dynamic within our team and that permeates into our client service atmosphere. The level of expertise, professionalism and compassion our team has and shares with clients is beyond comparison. - James L. Hayne Jr., CEO of Catto & Catto
HOUSTON (PRWEB) April 23, 2019
Catto & Catto, one of Texas’ largest independently-owned insurance and risk management agencies, today announced its expansion into the Houston market. This is a critical point of differentiation as the current insurance brokerage market has seen the consolidation of providers into large-scale agencies. The addition of Catto & Catto into the Houston market provides clients and employees with the opportunity to choose a skilled privately owned and operated firm that specializes in outstanding service.
With 86 years in the business and experience managing middle market to Fortune 500 clients, Catto & Catto prioritizes a culture of personalized service. To head up their new Houston office, Seth Michaelson has been awarded the position of Managing Director. Michaelson was most recently Vice President of Marsh Wortham.
“Catto & Catto is one of the few remaining private partnership options for insurance professionals and businesses in the Houston market; and definitely one of the most respected,” said Seth Michaelson, Managing Director of Catto & Catto. “Their service platform and culture aligned perfectly with how I wanted to assist clients. When you find a company that values client retention like Catto & Catto does, you know they are making the right decisions for the people they serve on a daily basis. We are all looking to create life success here, not just financial success—people can feel that difference.”
With over 80 employees in the South & Central Texas markets, Catto & Catto is looking to duplicate this type of presence in Houston during the next decade. For Catto & Catto, it’s about attaining the right type of talent. The organization provides producers with the opportunity to have ownership in what they offer, which elevates the quality of the operation and the direction of the company.
“As Catto & Catto expands into the Houston market, the focus remains on empowering people to become safer, healthier and more secure,” said James L Hayne Jr, CEO of Catto & Catto. “This is important for employee growth as well. The private ownership-style platform we have creates a vested dynamic within our team and that permeates into our client service atmosphere. The level of expertise, professionalism and compassion our team has and shares with clients is beyond comparison. We look forward to establishing new, long-lasting partnerships in Houston and the surrounding area.”
The team’s longevity and depth of knowledge allows the firm to provide customized individual and commercial insurance, risk management, surety, benefits and wellness solutions. At Catto & Catto, clients are assigned a dedicated account team that uses a thoughtful and thorough approach to managing complex risk situations. Particularly in the areas of real estate, construction and non-profit organizations, the firm builds custom insurance solutions that go beyond product delivery, providing strategies to help clients govern and get the most value out of the solutions in place.
