Operational Consulting

Most companies are appropriately staffed for their core business processes and normal circumstances.

However, there are times when an opportunity presents itself, or a business problem arises that could have an impact on the resources of the on-going operation.

Additionally, these situations could require expertise not currently available within the company.

GIP has provided resources and expertise in company start-up, financial management, risk management, system evaluation, new product strategy, project management, outsourced management, staff mentoring and operations analysis.

These services can be provided on a project basis or as on-going outsourced services.

“John has excellent knowledge of the Florida insurance market and has done work for us on multiple occasions.  John has developed financial models related to the merger of two of our companies which we used in our regulatory filings as well as financial models we used in projections presented to Demotech.

Additionally, John has helped us analyze the potential effect on reinsurance costs as a result of increasing our retention.  Each time we have engaged John, he had been thorough, timely and accurate.  We continue to view him as a valued resource.”
