As a small town independent agency I encounter contractors who have never bonded but want to bid on jobs. Many have all the credentials and financials to support their bonding needs. One of my clients had the right pieces in place but I had trouble getting a standard market to write the bond because of past jobs not being big enough. I requested Wayne Messick's assistance on this account. As a result of Wayne's knowledge and service we have a very loyal client with a standard bond program that continues to grow. Old Republic Surety Company is a great organization.
