"Protective Insurance has been a proactive and important part of our acquisition strategy. These projects don’t typically happen with a lot of forewarning so we need a risk management partner who is flexible, adaptable, and brings us insight and expertise that contributes to the success of the deal. Protective has consistently done that for us, being quick to respond to our needs and more than willing to put in whatever effort is necessary to help us meet our goals."
