Sharing Knowledge & Building Trust
Jackson Kahl Insurance provides customized insurance and risk management solutions to Wisconsin contractors
Finding the right insurance and risk management solutions is a challenge for everyone, but given the complexities of the construction industry, protecting workers and your livelihood can be as tall an order as a high-rise tower.
Jackson Kahl Insurance, an independently owned insurance company founded in 1956, has the experience and knowledge to offer general contractors and subcontractors the best coverage at the most competitive price. The firm represents some of the top insurance carriers in the country, which provides its team of experts the flexibility to choose the best carrier for each client’s unique exposure.
Servicing the Midwest, Jackson Kahl offers construction industry professionals everything from business insurance, group health plans, individual personal insurance, individual life, health, disability, even Medicare. Additionally, the firm offers bonding and has a deep pool of HR and safety resources that it can tap into for its clients.
Experience, Trust, Value, Innovation
Under the leadership of Jackson Kahl’s President, Mitch Kahl, whose father, Bob Kahl, was one of the two original founders, the company continues to push forward with innovative solutions aimed at exceeding their clients’ expectations, and building trust by providing them with the highest quality service and protection.
Jennifer Baudry, an experienced insurance consultant with Jackson Kahl, shares, “Mitch and I have been representing insurance companies in the construction industry for decades. I’ve been in it 20 years; he’s been in it even longer. And since I come from a construction background, I understand the industry, not only from the business insurance side of it but from operations as well. That’s a distinct advantage. Everyone on our team has the expertise to analyze exposures and recommend the best plan of action for our construction clients.”
Additionally, Jackson Kahl is proud to say that they don’t just come in and offer a price. Jennifer explains, “We offer the value of a competitive price along with working inside your business overall—and that could be everything from financials to safety to benefits and HR. Whether GCs or subcontractors, we review their scope of work, know what their exposures are, do a risk analysis on their current coverages and make any suggestions as to any unique coverages for their type of business. The added value that we bring goes well beyond just choosing an insurance package.”
Aligning Contractors with Individual Solutions
The overall goal is to align each client with the best company for their individualized needs, which not only comes down to pricing but also the specific coverages and services. Since construction is not a cookie-cutter industry, no two solutions will be the same.
Given the constant changes in the insurance industry, Jackson Kahl provides peace of mind to the contractors it serves. Jennifer remarks, “Our office staff has the knowledge to evaluate current coverages and any changes needed to meet those evolving insurance requirements. Everybody is tightening up their exposures and with the general contractors having additional requirements on certificates, it’s so important for them to have the resources to shore up all the legal ramifications that might come out of a project.”
With locations in Fond du Lac, New Holstein and Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Jackson Kahl continues to grow with acquisitions of other agencies, furthering its mission of leading the way to provide contractors with the quality protection they need and deserve.
