Sean Coykendall serves as a member of Horton's Construction Practice and brings extensive experience in the construction industry. Horton's Construction Practice is a team of dedicated risk management, employee benefits and insurance specialists who focus on serving contractors. Coykendall is responsible for providing clients with thorough, profitable and cutting-edge solutions to their most complicated, risk-related challenges.
Sean Coykendall believes his real world experience in the construction industry will be beneficial to his clients in The Horton Group's Construction Practice.
“I'm not just an insurance guy,” said Sean. “I grew up in my family's construction business. I think clients running their own construction companies will find it easy to relate to me.”
“I've seen insurance from both sides,” said Sean. “First, from the purchaser's side in my family's businesses. Then, from my time at VAST, Lockton and Alliant. I've seen how billion dollar insurance companies operate and how million dollar insurance companies operate. Horton offers the best of both worlds: the personal attention of a smaller firm, but with extensive services you usually find only in giant insurance companies.”
“Our in-house legal department can review contracts,” explained Sean. “Our claims advocates work tirelessly on behalf of our clients. We use certTRAX® to help contractors manage the insurance requirements of subcontractors. And our CRT strength testing machine spots pre-existing conditions before hiring to reduce worker's compensation claims.”
“Clients today need agents who will walk them down the path, not just point them in the direction,” said Sean. “And they need agents who are up on all the changes. We just got a new client whose previous agent missed an $8,000 discount.”
At The Horton Group, Sean will be responsible for helping to build and brand Surety Operations, signing new clients and serving existing ones.
