“I thoroughly enjoy my time working with John and came to know him as a truly valuable asset to absolutely any team. He is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working. Beyond that, he is an impressive critical thinker who is always solution driven. His knowledge of transportation and expertise in insurance is a huge advantage for any business seeking to increase profit margins. He put this skillset to work in order to take a motor carrier on the verge of shutting down to having underwriters knocking each other out to write the business in less than twenty-four months.”

“Over the past few months, I’ve gleaned pragmatic approaches to my business and built incentives directly related to productivity. I’ve organized my goals and I’ve refined my vision with clarity and purpose. Without the collaborative work of PTBP, these things would’ve remained in a foggy cloud of mere intentions.”
