Rick Baumgartner
Baumgartner Construction, Inc.

“I was pleased to hear that Esser Hayes Insurance Group had been nominated for the Small Business of the Year Award. I can not think of a business more deserving of this recognition. As a corporation I have employed Esser Hayes since 1978. In an increasingly competitive market I am often approached by other insurance brokers. As a responsible business owner I often listen to the competition but, the evaluation is always the same. I still have the best – The best service at every level. The best pricing of products. The best attention to the unique insurance needs of my industry. In short, Esser Hayes Insurance Group is a small business which has had a huge impact on my success.”
