Van Wyk has six company values that are central to our business operation: Knowledge & Experience, Custom-Tailored, Creative, Integrity, Ownership, and Partnership. Our employees strive to live out these values both in our relationships with clients, and our relationships with one another.
How do we exert ownership to better serve your specific business, employee benefits, and personal needs?
“Van Wyk always goes to bat for our company… Over the years they have extended coverage in a number of areas, provided good solutions, and worked collaboratively with us to mitigate our risk. Van Wyk takes ownership of our needs” – Dan Lennon, President & CEO of Michigan Turkey Producers
We’re in your corner. Your concerns are our call to action. We use our knowledge and clout to vigorously fight for you and your needs, treating your business as if it were our own. Don’t just take our word for it… listen for yourself to what our clients have to say.
At Van Wyk we take the time to understand the personal, commercial, and employee benefits risks of our clients, giving you the confidence and security needed to thrive. Your goals are our goals, and we desire your success. By taking ownership of your risks, we succeed together.
So if you’re going to entrust your risk management program to someone, let it be the experts. At Van Wyk, you are promised the full attention of a boutique firm and the knowledge, experience, and horsepower of a large company. We have been in business for 38 years and our employees have a combined 400+ years of insurance industry experience. All of our employees, from our marketing department to our accounting department, are licensed insurance agents. Several have been with our company for more than 20 years. As an independent agency, we partner with numerous different insurance carriers, allowing us to pick and choose which insurance companies and policies will be the best and most economical fit for your company’s industry, size, and exposures. We will take the time to listen and get to know your business in order to provide and educate you on your best possible options. You need a partner and an advocate, and we are proud to play that role.
In addition to commercial, personal, and employee benefits solutions, we can also help you regain ownership over your business’s liabilities by offering out-of-the-box solutions, such as self-insurance or a group captive. As a member of a group captive, you’re no longer susceptible to the ever-increasing and unpredictable costs imposed by conventional insurance providers year after year. In a captive, your business will benefit from lower costs, improved risk control, enhanced profit potential, and long-term control of its insurance destiny. Learn more about member-owned group captives here.
The world is ever-changing, and risks and liabilities change along with it. Take, for example, the current COVID-19 pandemic, recent rise in cybercrime and ransomware attacks, and constantly evolving healthcare legislation. Allow us to handle all of this for you, so you can devote your time and attention where it is needed most.
