Tubia_Logo.jpgThe United Brokers Insurance Agency, Inc.

The advent of United Brokers started over a fiery debate between Bill Donaldson and Michael DiManno on Obamacare and how it would affect the staffing industry back in 2012. Both Bill and Mike were students of this difficult and changing law and were impressed by each other’s knowledge and aggressive pursuit of trying to find a deeper understanding of how it will change the market in the future. With mutual respect they decided to join forces to create a new kind of agency that was different from where they and worked for in the past. The goal was to be uniquely qualified to service the clients and promote quality client relationships over growth.

In order to do this we decided to serve only industries that we felt we had an advantage over other brokerage houses because of domain expertise, technology, or other attributes that would give us an edge. An important part of that was to make sure that we never outgrow our ability to stay in touch with the needs and desires of each client. We seek out the best employees who have a similar passion for service and experience in the markets they serve. Another aspect that bound the two founders was the belief that being a good corporate citizen comes with the responsibility of recirculating our success through philanthropic efforts that strengthen the communities we serve. We look to our employees and vendors to join us in that effort through a variety of programs.
