Being in risk management, the cake probably won’t have that many candles on it, but Ross & Yerger is indeed celebrating 150 years of helping businesses manage risk. More than that, the firm is celebrating its many, many years of being a proud partner in the community.
Over the last century and a half, Ross & Yerger has fostered long-term, trusted relationships with clients, while striving to play a support role in local and regional community service endeavors as well.
“Meals on Wheels. Angel Tree. Stewpot Community Services. Habitat for Humanity. Mississippi Museum of Art. For us, these are the efforts that reap some of the biggest rewards,” notes President and Chief Operating Officer Dudley Wooley. “After all, this isn’t just where we work, it’s where we live. Since 1860, we’ve held to a strong commitment to lend a hand here in Jackson – and now in Tupelo and Baton Rouge – to help the communities grow, prosper, and flourish.”
It’s a commitment that goes back to when James B. Ross and Edward Yerger opened their doors to fledgling businesses throughout Mississippi in need of insurance protection. The commitment continues today, and, in large part, has made Ross & Yerger the company it now is. Currently with 84 employees, Ross & Yerger is among the Mississippi Business Journal’s Best Places to Work for 2010, and was recently named one of National Underwriter’s Insurance Agencies of the Year.
“We’re proud that Jackson’s our hometown,” adds Wooley. “And we’re thankful for all that the people here have done to help Ross & Yerger thrive, too.”
Founded and headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, Ross & Yerger provides innovative and cost-effective risk-management solutions for business clients across many industries nationwide. The Ross & Yerger philosophy is to grow relationships by looking out for each client’s best interests.
