About CRC Group:

CRC Group is the most diversified wholesaler in the marketplace, providing support for all sizes and complexities of risks.  CRC Group is a leader in the marketplace.  Creating a strategic focus of aligning our business to match the needs of our clients, we bring our people, solutions, leverage, and products to our clients using our strengths.

CRC Group has the most data in the wholesale business.  We collect exposure and loss information on every account we write, building a proprietary database that includes millions of data points across all wholesale product lines.  We can use data and analytics to make nearly every part of how we market and service an account better through our new REDY platform, allowing us to deliver a better client experience every time.

We are committed to the concept that when you work with CRC Group, you are not selecting a vendor, but a partner. The right wholesaler relationships open doors to more markets, greater leverage, and a wider array of specialty products.  Over our long combined years of service, we have built exceptionally strong relationships with senior management from our top markets.  These relationships enable us to navigate underwriting cycles more proactively, offer our clients the latest products and programs, negotiate highly competitive terms, conditions, and prices for any size insured, and ensure swift claims adjudication.

CRC Group differentiates itself through our size and strength, ability to add value, solutions approach, and our best in class people and processes.
