Insurance Business America Magazine produced their first-ever compilation of agencies that have found their niche – and success. From coast to coast, these 148 agencies and brokers provide specialized services to insure their clients’ every need. Meeker Sharkey & Hurley is recognized for their specialization in insuring nonprofits.
The original Meeker Sharkey was formed more than 100 years ago and became Meeker Sharkey & Hurley in 2014 after merging with The James F. Hurley Insurance Agency. For the past 20 years, the firm has specialized in insuring nonprofits, which account for 20% to 25% of their current book of business.
The agency’s nonprofits clients range from social service and mental health agencies to halfway houses and YMCA/YWCA programs. Richard Skorupski, senior vice president and lead for the agency’s nonprofit team, explains that his team “goes well beyond just purchasing insurance.” Skorupski and his team sit on numerous nonprofit safety committees and are actively involved in the nonprofit community, allowing them to have an in-depth understanding of their clients’ insurance and risk management needs.
