“Maran has been handling the business insurance for my wife’s business (Bari Miller, OD, PLLC) and when we were buying a building to move both my wife’s business and my own, we asked Jennifer for her help. This turned out not to be as easy as we thought, with our needing to obtain insurance from a non-admitted company and having to deal with both the bank and US Small Business Association requirements for our insurance needs. Jennifer worked closely with me ensuring that I understood our quotes and options, as well as working with us to meet the bank and SBA requirements.
As a business owner, I certainly understand and appreciate good employees and Jennifer should be commended for her professionalism, knowledge and hard work; you should be proud to have her as a member of your staff – she represents Maran well.”

“It is not often that we receive service above and beyond the call of duty, but MCRA has given me a great example of it. They were willing to help us off hours to so we would have the paperwork needed to take advantage of a last minute Cash for Clunkers deal. This is typical of the attention we have received since becoming an MCRA client. We would recommend them highly to anyone.”

“While Claudio and I have always been impressed with the service provided by Maran Corporate Risk, working with you at Tristan has confirmed what a professional organization Maran is. As you know, the insurance requirements here at Tristan are complex. Both Catherine and Andy have been incredibly helpful in aiding us with getting the appropriate coverage and ensuring that our documentation is there when we need it. As I just told Peter, having you as our brokers is like adding an extra person to our office staff. We are both convinced that transferring our business to Maran has been an excellent move and has been an asset not only to us, but to our customers who also benefit from the timely response to requests for certificates, etc. Both Peter and I have recommended you to other potential customers and will continue to do so.”

“MCRA taught us how to adequately protect ourselves while minimizing costs. No hard sells – just the facts and prices. MCRA has been my only insurance broker for 24 years. I have shopped insurance costs and coverage’s several times and have always found MCRA to be lower than the competition, even the “discount” insurance brokers.”

“Please allow this letter to serve as a recommendation to consider engaging Maran Corporate Risk Associates (MCRA) as an insurance firm of your choice. I recently renewed my workers’ compensation program with MCRA for a number of reasons. However, before taking time to explain the renewal process, I want to take this opportunity to express what drove my decision to engage MCRA initially.
Our company was in the assigned risk pool in the state of New Jersey. As such, it unnecessarily cost Kennedy many times what it should have. After meeting with a multitude of firms in 2007, and making every attempt to find an underwriter who could insure us given our poor history for claims, it was Keith Maietta, and his firm that found a solution that would begin the process of saving time and money. Thanks to Keith and MCRA, we are insured with a AAA rated insurance firm that saved us tens of thousands simply by lifting us out of the assigned risk pool.
Keith and his team worked diligently in pinpointing the most important component of this process: education and training. Through many tools such as the MCRA website portal, in-house training became an easy task for our personnel located in 5 states. MCRA’s in-depth knowledge and experience has proven to me to be the best in the industry. And, when it comes to workers’ comp. matters, knowledge and experience is extremely critical in saving time and money. Moreover, Maran has provided the insight and response to our field operations’ people needing oversight the most. I am most impressed that MCRA works as a team to provide the best resources in the business.
Once Kennedy knew what to expect given the first year with Maran, the renewal process was certainly easier. However, the insurance business is very competitive, and in this environment, MCRA knew they needed to earn our business again. Maran reviewed our company classification and rates, suggesting ways to save additional money. Since our experience modification rating continued to decrease resulting from the strong educational foundation MCRA built with our company, our premiums were expected to decrease. Needless to say, Keith Maietta and the entire MCRA continued to work and earn the business they came to deserve from The Kennedy Companies."

"We appreciate all that Maran does for us, they not only care about insuring our business, they have a whole hearted interest in our business, it is always a pleasure having a visit with them."
“What a wake up call we received after your detailed and thorough review of our present policies. The “holes” are plugged and we are still fully insured in a very cohesive program with
reduced premiums! Best of all, we have a rep we can contact when needed. With quality service and attention as your normal practice this is a win-win situation for Swim King Pools."
