New York, May 5, 2017
First Fidelity Brokerage, Inc. (FFB) an independent insurance broker, has been awarded the insurance contract for The Mall at Stonecrest, a super-regional mall near Atlanta Georgia. The mall is one of the largest malls in Georgia, with over a million sq ft of retail floor area.
William McNeil, Senior Vice President, said his firm wrestled the account away from the world’s largest insurance broker by providing a superior program due to the dedication of the experienced insurance professionals at First Fidelity Brokerage.
“Majority of smaller and mid-size brokers are out of their depth when it comes to procuring complicated insurance programs for malls; and national brokers often pay little attention unless they are part of a larger portfolio or somehow tied into a national account. FFB however has the experience and ensures that the appropriate resources are utilized to structure the optimal program based on the specific risk appetite of the client. For the Mall at Stonecrest placement, FFB has negotiated the insurance program with forty three (43) insurance companies in order to secure the right program,” said Eugene Podokshik, Principal & CEO of the company. “You just don’t see that kind of an effort from any other broker”, added William McNeil who lead the placement for The Mall.
“To simply put it, they did an amazing job. FFB thought outside the box and delivered superior results”, said Craig Delasin, CEO of Urban Retail Properties, the company that manages The Mall at Stonecrest.
