Cobbs Allen’s Houston Office Will Offer Expertise in Energy and Construction Industries

Cobbs Allen, a risk management firm specializing in commercial insurance, employee benefits, personal insurance, and alternative risk financing services, is expanding its operations into Houston this month. The expansion project is part of a larger strategy to increase specialty services, expertise, and world-class benefits at a national level, starting with Midwestern states of Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana.

Bruce Denson, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer, leads the company’s strategic planning and growth initiatives. Denson, along with a team of experienced leaders, is building upon the company’s 129-year-old legacy and strength of service in order to bring the Cobbs Allen approach to caring for companies’ overall health to new markets nationwide.

“We couldn’t be more excited about Houston opening as this allows us to further specialize in business sectors and markets where we see huge opportunities for businesses to thrive,” said Denson. “Our risk management philosophy is built around helping companies build plans to prevent future claims, provide better healthcare to employees and holistically bring insurance and consulting together with the right carriers. We’re always out front, looking to create healthier, safer and more engaged companies that serve their communities.”

Leading Cobbs Allen’s Houston office are three Senior Vice Presidents: Josh Kirklin, previously with McGriff, Seibels & Williams; Mark Mullervy, previously with Lockton; Robert Plumb, previously with J.H. Blades & Co.; and Senior Account Executive Annette Griggs, also previously with Lockton.

“The philosophy and opportunity at Cobbs Allen are unique in the business,” said Kirklin. “We were engaged by the opportunity, the culture, and the company, which has not been institutionalized.  The Houston team believes the private, non-institutional components are critical to a service driven business.  We look forward to expanding the Cobbs Allen approach in Texas and beyond, helping more clients understand how to optimize the ways in which they manage risk.”
