We are pleased and excited to confirm that Frenkel & Company has merged our operations with EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center) effective November 20, 2017.
EPIC is one of the country’s fastest growing privately-held insurance brokers. With the addition of the Frenkel & Company team, EPIC now has more than 1,400 team members, operating from 50 locations across the nation, and more than $400 million in run rate revenue. EPIC ranks among the top 10 commercial insurance brokers in the United States and among the top 20 globally. EPIC has built a strong, positive reputation for service excellence, innovation, community, collaboration and fun – all in the interest of being a “people first” (clients and team members) organization.
With the private equity support of Oak Hill Capital Partners, EPIC is continuing to execute a strategic national expansion plan, and we have chosen to join them as an integral part of their operations in the Northeast, across the country and internationally. More about EPIC can be found on its website www.epicbrokers.com.
Among the primary reasons for Frenkel’s decision to join EPIC are the principles, values and beliefs that we share. EPIC’s people first culture is repeatedly recognized by its employees as a “Best Place to Work” in multiple regions, and for eight consecutive years in the insurance industry nationally. EPIC’s commitment to customer service excellence and aggressive client advocacy is on par with our own, as well.
Frenkel & Company has delivered strategic guidance and service around our clients’ property & casualty, personal lines and benefits programs needs for almost 140 years, and we believe the decision to join EPIC will help us deliver an expansive new set of capabilities to our clients, with the same commitment to service delivery that has been a hallmark of our firm.
The Frenkel & Company leadership team has taken significant equity positions as EPIC shareholders and will be actively involved in the leadership of the company going forward, participating directly in all decisions impacting our current and future clients. This national presence is balanced with local autonomy in client servicing and day-to-day operations. Our senior leadership team will play vital, active roles within the integrated EPIC organization, and our clients will have access to a wider menu of expanded capabilities.
We will keep you closely advised as we transition together to become a part of EPIC. We are fully confident that you will find the evolution to be a seamless one, with a positive impact for you and your organization. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please let us know.
We are excited about the future of Frenkel & Company, now an EPIC Company.
The best is yet to come!
