LET'S HEAR IT FIRST HAND
SOME SAY THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING.
We like to think the proof is in unwavering personal attention and visionary forethought. But who are we to quibble?
RICHARD R. GRIFFITH
President - Sturges Manufacturing, Inc.
"I really needed someone I could trust. I didn't want someone to quote product again. I wanted a complete assessment. GKG went through a very thorough process. They sat with us, really dug in and brought experts in for every field. It involved a lot of time on their part. They functioned like a business partner and proved themselves as far more than an agency."
RONALD A. CUCCARO
President and CEO - Adjusters International
"No other broker has ever done for us what GKG does. Their annual risk management assessment has nothing to do with selling insurance. They look objectively at everything, top to bottom, to identify vulnerability and gaps to help us mitigate our exposure to risk. There's never been a session where something great didn't come out of it."
CEO - Mountain Lake Academy
"It’s easy to buy insurance from a company when dealing in the abstract. Where the rubber meets the road is when you have a real loss or claim, that’s where a company’s true colors come out. When Hurricane Irene came through the GKG Team was all hands on deck. I’ve never ever endorsed a company. That alone speaks volumes about how I feel about them."

"None of my friends can say that their employer is recognized as a Platinum Level Fit & Friendly Place to Work by the American Heart Association."
Director of Human Resources - Mohawk Valley Health System
"When we're looking to evaluate our benefits program, it is unrealistic to make comparisons against national data; it is comparing apples to oranges. The regional data provided by GKG’s annual Share-To-Compare Benchmarking is what tells us that our organization is doing the right thing for our employees based on the Central New York Market. It proves that we are providing valuable benefits to our employees and enables us to attract top-notch candidates. I look at it as validation!"
President - Boilermaker Road Race
"We weren't looking at all angles, but GKG did. GKG really pushed us to think through the Boilermaker Road Race coverage. The Boston Marathon bombings changed everything in regard to our exposure. By digging in and probing with the right questions, they came up with solutions that felt appropriate and fair, and will keep our nearly 6,000 volunteers covered. I appreciate that we get good coverage, and not at incredible cost to the race."
FRED AND NICK MATT
President and Chairman - F.X. Matt Brewing Company
"Throughout our long-standing partnership GKG has continually demonstrated a true understanding of our business, well beyond insurance, and in turn offered many valuable insights. Each meeting with GKG gives us peace of mind that they’ve considered every way to mitigate risk for the brewery, but the 2008 fire truly proved just how great a partner they really are. They were there within minutes, we were covered every step of the way and a disaster that could have crippled us proved to be an opportunity in many ways."
CEO - Driver's Village, Inc.
"We have been doing business with GKG for the past 6 years. We have never found a more professional insurance agency. They not only provide competitive insurance prices, but they also provide great guidance and training for our employees regarding risk management."
Director of Human Resources - M.A. Polce Consulting, Inc.
"I think of the GKG team as a never ending book of knowledge that’s always in play. They’re constantly inserting expertise and ideas on everything from cyber liability to health and wellness, and they serve up each idea and piece of information in a way that’s simple and useful. The GKG team doesn't just tell you what they can do, they do it."
"We're recognized by Intersure Partners as one of two New York State agencies with the best entrepreneurial and technical minds in the insurance industry. I mean do I need to say any more?"
President - MedTech Association
"We're a small non-profit and likely not one of GKG's biggest clients, but they give us top-notch attention. They are so proactively engaged and hands on, always ensuring I understand the different benefits. Because of the level of service and support I receive I am not only extremely confident about them as a partner, I also feel really good about referring them to our members. Like any referral, it's a reflection of who you are and I'm always proud to pass their name along."
"Yup, the place I call 'work' was voted the # 1 Best Place to Work in New York State. We should come up with a new word to describe where we go every day. What’s the opposite of work? Fun? It might be weird to say that’s where you’re going everyday, but it sure doesn’t feel like work."
