    Client Marketing Strategy

    The Loomis Company relies heavily on its relationships and prides itself on maintaining strong and effective long-term relationships with its customers, its markets and its personnel.

    Each year we evaluate with you all the potential insurers and establish a mutual strategy for the approach to these markets. It is our philosophy to involve our clients in this process as we maintain that the ultimate contract is between the client and the insurer and only by these parties becoming completely comfortable with each other, will the foundation for a trusted and respected partnership develop.

    • We review claims experience, assumption of risk and risk transfer mechanisms. We then look at possible alternative underwriters attempting to establish a base for a future long-term relationship should it ever become necessary to replace your existing
    • We also explore the use of multiple insurers in a vertical or quota share placement structure if market availability, capacity and/or high limits of liability become an

    The Loomis Company is renowned in the aviation insurance community for its comprehensive, informative and precise underwriting submissions to underwriters. Fashioned after this solution plan, our underwriting submissions incorporate an introduction of your business, a description of the company, its capabilities and background on the company consisting of ownership history and recent events, including the company’s business plan, strategic marketing opportunities, business strategy section, resumes of the management team and principles, organizational charts, and selected financial information.

    The Loomis Company has developed international aviation marketing partnerships with several London-based brokers. With these relationships, we have access to every London and European insurance and reinsurance market. If an overseas market is needed, we select the most qualified team from the broker best suited to meet your objectives.

  • The Importance Of In-House Risk Management Services

    The Importance Of Risk Management is a concept that evolved in the insurance brokerage sector. Over the years, the idea of a broker working with a client on a preventative basis has gone from something that sounded like a good idea, to something that has become THE mantra for us. With our in-house Risk Management Division, we are able to provide a level of service, at no additional cost, that other brokers just can’t bring to the table. With multiple offices across the country, we are able to be on-sight with our clients, not only when needed, but in preventative measures as well.

    Below are just a few things we work with our clients on to minimize issues and maximize efficiency and safety:

    • Root cause analysis
    • Hazard evaluation and recommendations, including historical review of injury history and pre-construction site surveys, if applicable
    • OSHA evaluation and compliance audits, in partnership with OSHA representatives
    • Creation of an effective Safety Manual with model special hazards procedures appropriate for the customer
    • Structuring and implementing incentive programs to encourage workplace safety
    • Develop and implement alcohol and drug free worksite program
    • Ergonomics assessment and training on-site
    • Assistance in developing appropriate and effective best practices for hiring
    • On site visits and surveys
    • Create an organizational flowchart to ensure all entities are appropriately insured
    • Exposure identification, review and recommendations
    • Loss forecasting
    • Retention and deductible level analysis
    • Develop risk profile and specifications

    • We will assist in the development of an attractive risk profile to capitalize on current soft market conditions and minimize the impact of future hard market conditions.

    Claims Management And Facilitation

    The Difference Of A Cohesive Team Approach

    Proactive Risk Management is an extremely important part of the overall coverage analysis, as well as safety and rate protection.

    That being said, without proper Claims Management, the best prevention plans can be relatively meaningless. At The Loomis Company, we know the importance of handling claims correctly and swiftly. By doing so, we are able to limit our clients’ exposures and maintain the lowest costs possible from our partner carriers. For over 30 years, we have deemed it a necessity to have our own Claims Management department in house, in tandem with our Risk Management. The two functions need to be attached at the hip in order to produce the correct support and balance for all of our clients.

    The Loomis Company knows that attritional type claims are a normal part of running a large company. We will assist you in setting up the proper internal procedures and contact personnel to enable quick communications with the claims adjuster to facilitate adjusting these types of claims. Every member on your dedicated team will be informed in real time whenever a claim is reported. The same process will be followed for more serious aviation related claims. In many cases, our team will be on site at your facility or claim location within a matter of hours.

    Jim Loomis

    CEO

    The love of flying has been in Jim’s blood since the age of 19, when he acquired his first airplane, a Cessna 172.

    This was the beginning of many aircraft in Jim’s personal and professional life. Presently, Jim owns and operates a Lear 45 and has over 7 jet type ratings.

    His first venture into the aviation world was establishing and operating a Part 135 operation, which consisted of carrying checks for Fidelity Bank and the Federal Reserve.

    When he first started in the insurance business in the late 1960’s, he focused on commercial and property & casualty, along with marine and aviation insurance, which proved to be integral in opening the doors to write accounts from single engine aircraft to regional airlines, corporate jets and FBO’s, including maintenance facilities. This involved dealing with all major U.S. markets, including negotiating with and being tribunalized in London.

    Over this period of time, The Loomis Company has grown to a level where over

    $1 billion in claims are processed annually. A client list containing large, high profile property accounts, including hotels and casinos, large municipalities, hospitality, international organizations and groups consisting of several hundred thousand lives has enabled the company to achieve a level of expertise and experience across all 50 states, Europe and international markets.

    Over the years, Jim has worked with countless aviation clients and organizations. His passion for aviation drives him to continue to build out and perfect insurance coverage solutions and applications for that market.

    Jim works with the entire team every day to ensure and facilitate best in class customer service and insurance practice. His passion for getting our customers the best coverage at the best possible price is second to none.
