Prominent Insurance Brokerage Brings Creative Cost Controls to Staffing Industry

Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States, announced that Jordan Markuson, CPCU, has joined the company as Assistant Vice President.

A seasoned entrepreneur and experienced insurance producer with a proven track record, Markuson’s focus will be on strengthening and expanding the firm’s presence in the complex staffing firm market. A $140 billion industry currently experiencing record growth, the challenge for agencies in the highly competitive staffing market is labor costs, for which worker’s compensation insurance is a substantial factor. Markuson’s proactive risk management strategy analyzes the variables that impact premiums, develops a customized loss control strategy, and implements tailored insurance programs that provide uniquely controlled premium costs. His aggressive, forward thinking approach brings substantial value to staffing firms with measurable savings that support competitive labor costs.

Heffernan Senior Managing Vice President Benjamin Stern, to whom Markuson reports, said “Our management strategy has always been to hire talented people and place them in an environment that promotes creativity. By encouraging outside the box thinking, our team consistently generates innovative and effective solutions to common problems. Jordan’s resourcefulness and drive are an ideal fit, and his efforts are already producing a competitive advantage for our commercial clients.”
