Insurance adjusting has been part of Brian’s life since he was born. Brian’s father was a General Adjuster for the General Adjustment Bureau in the late 50’s and 60’s and later with Crawford and Company. After attending Westfield State College, Brian worked for a restoration contractor for five years where he honed his estimating skills.
In early 1984 Brian became a property adjuster for Crawford and Company in their West Palm Beach branch office. While there he obtained valuable policy coverage knowledge to add to his estimating skills. In 1985 he was approached by Gay and Taylor Insurance Adjusters to handle their South East Florida property claims. One of our clients was Aetna Insurance Company. While handling claims for the Aetna Brian met David Maries who was the supervisor. Brian eventually joined the Aetna in 1989 and handled property claims as a “Claims Tech” until the company was purchased by Travelers Insurance Company in 1996.
After Brian left the Travelers he and David remained in contact. When David opened up Premier Adjusting in 1997 it was just a matter of time before they would join up again. Brian joined Premier as the Catastrophe manager in 1998 and grew along with the company through all the hurricanes, tornadoes, hail and snow events throughout the country. Brian became a partner in 2006 and has enjoyed being an intricate part of the growth of the Premier family.
