One of the best things about Woodruff Sawyer was their ability to partner with us…I didn’t have to hire experts. I had a partner in my insurance broker that was an expert.”

They contribute by applying their expertise and innovative approach to risk management to support our key goals, objectives and long term strategic vision.”

Roxana R. Blades, MBA, Chief Financial Officer, Institute on Aging

I was negotiating a large contract with a Fortune 50 prospect, when I came across a section on insurance. Not wanting to make a mistake, I reached out to [my WS team]. In the four years I’ve been here, they have an uninterrupted track record of overachieving and delighting me. This morning was no exception: at 7:39AM I emailed [the team] and a little over an hour later I had two comprehensive explanations…This is why I recommend Woodruff Sawyer as often as I can. I am a very satisfied client.”

Bob Finley, Chief Financial Officer & Chief of Staff, RedSeal

Our account team has incredible response speed, even more so during renewal when the pressure is on… [They] always demonstrate a caring attitude toward our employees and provide well-researched and reviewed answers to our requests. It is a solid feeling having Woodruff Sawyer in our corner.”

Matt Troskey, VP of People & Learning, Mt. Hood Meadows Resort

Great partners, super responsive. Always willing to go the extra mile and assist with any request. Great value in comparison to other benefit consulting firms. Have been extremely instrumental in helping drive cost containment strategies (i.e. consumerism). We couldn’t do our jobs without this partnership.”

Woodruff Sawyer’s service has been truly exceptional. Our account rep feels more like part of my staff than an external service provider and contributes to the success of our organization beyond simply placing insurance coverage.”
