I am honored to serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Landscape Contractors Insurance Services, Inc. Founded over 20 years ago by landscapers, for landscapers, LCIS continues to follow its initial directive to provide landscapers with outstanding insurance coverage at the most competitive prices available.
We at LCIS have strong ties to the landscape industry, and we have worked very hard at maintaining our commitment to our customers and the landscape contracting niche. Our involvement with the landscape contractor community has been a constant over the past 20 years. Our staff and Field Representatives attend local CLCA, NLA & UNLA meetings and outings in their area. In addition, we continue to sponsor Association events, including the CLCA's keynote speaker at their Semi-Annual and Annual Meetings.
We are continuously implementing internal changes, designed to strengthen our product offering, technical expertise and customer service. We feel that by constantly looking for better ways to do things, the stronger we become, the more value and services we will be able to provide our clients. Our goal is to be the premier landscaping insurance marketplace throughout our marketing territory.
LCIS has recently expanded in six new states. In those states, LCIS wil be working on an open brokerage basis, which will allow us to work with many brokers and independent agents throughout the country.
As the President and CEO of LCIS, I look forward with a great deal of confidence and certainty, that our continued efforts and ongoing commitment to our vision will result in long term, mutually beneficial relationships between LCIS and our customers.
Thank you for your interest in LCIS.
Kim Ayala, CIC
