TWIW Insurance Joins "Golf for Autism" as a Corporate Sponsor

TWIW Insurance is a proud corporate sponsor of Autism Care and Treatment's 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, benefiting children with autism. TWIW Insurance, the largest privately owned insurance brokerage on California's Central Coast, is returning this year as one of the charity tournament's major supporters. 

"We are extremely grateful for the generosity and thoughtfulness of TWIW Insurance," says Tournament Director Stefan de Nocker. "Without the generosity of companies like TWIW Insurance, we would not be able to fulfill our mission of helping children with autism get the necessary care and treatment (i.e. helmets, social skills classes, therapy, etc.) that need in order to have a productive life."

TWIW Insurance Services has more than 150 years of combined experience in every facet of the insurance industry, from commercial and personal lines to employee benefits and investment services. Formed in January 2005 from the merger of Tolman and Wiker Insurance and InWest Insurance Services, TWIW is the Central Coast’s largest independent insurance brokerage, with offices in Bakersfield, Salinas, Santa Maria, and Ventura. TWIW Insurance's brokerage team combines extensive industry knowledge and market specialization to provide comprehensive risk protection and claims management for clients in virtually every sector of the marketplace. By striving for excellence, TWIW has earned a reputation for meeting clients’ needs with innovation, integrity and dependability.

With 19 principals, 180 employees and $290 million in premium volume, TWIW is one of the top-50 independent insurance brokers in the nation. Yet unlike large national firms, TWIW continues to be locally owned and operated. For clients, this means face-to-face interaction with like-minded business owners who live and work in the same community and can anticipate and manage whatever changes come their way.

TWIW offers sound protection backed by personalized service, and our broad selection of highly rated carriers means access to the best insurance products and prices available. But our relationships don’t end once coverage is in place. TWIW members continuously monitor claims activity and workplace environment to help clients minimize risk, control losses and protect their bottom line. This accounts for a client retention rate of more than 95 percent, one of the highest in the industry and a testimony to the quality and dedication of our staff.
