A Message From Our Founder - Andrew T. Kerr
To our fellow clients and friends:
It is my humble pleasure to thank you personally for your support. Without you we would not have success, provide jobs or be available 24/7 like many of you enjoy. For that, thank you!
I am truly grateful to earn your trust each year. We know how much trust goes into the decisions we help you manage. With that comes a great responsibility, and we will continue to hold ourselves to the highest standard of integrity and transparency. Our company started in 2008 in Fresno, CA as a commercial insurance office. Today we are three company divisions: Kerr Insurance Brokers, Inc. Kerr Wealth Management (Inc.) and Kerr Payroll Solutions, LLC. Our growth is a direct result of hard work, exhausting research, planning and strong customer relationships. The Kerr Company strives for absolute excellence and accountability to others and ourselves.
This is my 15th year as the CEO of the Kerr Companies and my 15th year as an entrepreneur enthusiast. In our business, we compete with some of the largest companies in the world consisting of publicly traded companies and regional companies ranging from custodians, investment firms, insurance companies and payroll providers. I am proud to say that we compete fiercely while serving over 1500 customers throughout the Central Valley of Fresno, Clovis CA and throughout many other states. For the past 36 months, our retention rate is 99.72%.
The rapidly changing world which constantly affects traditional ways of doing business might well be gone. Amazon is a great example of that. I can order something at 6pm and have it delivered the next day by noon. It is this expeditious trend that is changing the business landscape and perhaps for the worst. This obstructive and disruptive trend has led us to a place of fewer jobs, lower paid college graduates, less skilled workers and overall lack of quality in every aspect of service. At any one of our Kerr Company divisions, it is our mission to maintain a work ethic of urgency and compassion to our colleagues and our clients. What we call our "high touch" service. The old adage applies today more than ever - “you get what you pay for.” At the Kerr Companies, we will continue to press forward with traditional values while balancing modern technology and transparent pricing.
I thank you sincerely for your business, feedback, relationship and the opportunity to renew your business for another year.
Andrew T. Kerr
CEO / Founder
