Many firms can boast of humble roots, however very few can say theirs were literally dreamed up in the shade of an oak tree. In the late 1980’s, three friends who were experts in the insurance industry began meeting regularly to learn from one another and discuss how to best serve their individual clients. These regular meetings eventually began to take shape into the idea of launching a firm together. Although they were certainly big thinkers, it is safe to say that Arnold Edwards, Bart Church and Jim Muse never dreamed their idea would grow to become what ECM Solutions is today.
The founding partners brought backgrounds of carrier marketing, agency sales and management, as well as banking and finance to the formation of the firm. Tragically, Bart Church suffered an accidental death soon after the firm was formed. Arnold and Jim certainly had their work cut out for them, but they pressed on to building out the vision they each shared underneath that oak tree.
25+ years later, our firm services over 6,000 clients across the entire United States and in many countries across the globe. As we continued to move forward, we were fortunate enough to attract great talent to assist us with our growth. Along the way, our firm owners and officers were expanded by adding Jeff Haney, Jeff Little, Sam Thompson, Tim Turner, John Ketner, and Jae McGuirt to the team.
Although we are quite proud of our history and accomplishments, we also recognize we will never be done getting better. That always has been the focus of our firm, and it always will be. We will never be complete in getting better to help our clients reach their goals.
