Tweetable Quotes:

  • “We all have opportunities that we let slip through the cracks every single day.” – David Carothers
  • “If you don’t have relationships with retirement planners, or services providers in the cyber area, or any of these people that can really come in and drive value, to assist with those things that an insurance program is not going to help with, you’re missing the boat,” – David Carothers
  • There’s going to be people that are going out and trying to get back in the swing of things and they’re gonna all be doing the same thing that they were doing before, they’re going to be doing what everybody else is doing but I think if you can just differentiate yourself…with these three things here with the cyber with the management liability, and with the buy-sell stuff, that’s all perfect in terms of the current situation right now.” – Kyle Houck
