Georgia based property and casualty insurance broker Keystone Insurers has selected Bernard Williams & Company, as its first franchise partner in Georgia state, US.

Collaboration between the two companies was jointly announced by Bernard Williams & Company chief executive officer (CEO) Dick Williams and Keystone’s vice president of sales and marketing Elizabeth Schenk.

"This partnership will provide our firm with an enhanced ability to better serve our customers with both existing and new insurance carriers, and by innovative approaches to managing their risk," Williams said.

"Keystone Insurers Group combines the knowledge and resources of its 235 partner agencies countrywide to further benefit our clients. This affiliation will help Bernard Williams & Company to remain independent and continue serving our clients’ needs with dedication and integrity."

"As Keystone’s first Georgia partner, Bernard Williams & Company will play an important role in building success in this state," said Schenk.

Bernard Williams & Company, established in 1934, is a full-service insurance agency serving over 4,000 businesses and families in Savannah and the Southeast.
