The McLean Insurance Agency, Inc. is proud to announce that they have concluded a partnership agreement with Continuity Dynamics, Inc., a national risk and disaster preparedness firm, to deliver solutions to complement Disaster Recovery backup with Business Continuity Planning that is currently being provided by their partners to over 7,500 clients nationally.
McLean’s President & CEO, Douglas B. Megill announced this partnership at their annual “Cars Cruzin to Cure Cancer“ event which is a major fundraiser providing funds to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Mr. Megill stated, “Most companies have Insurance to protect their assets and their personnel from disaster events. In fact, many , but few actually have Business Continuity Plans that can help them remain in business when disaster strikes. We have found that the risk minimization solutions represented by Continuity Dynamics are perfect for businesses of all sizes.”
Ralph Petti, MBCI, CBCP, GRCP and President of Continuity Dynamics mentioned that “industry leaders like McLean Insurance really care about their clients and take the time and effort to educate them to help ensure that their clients are doing everything that they can to minimize their risk. We are proud to partner with McLean Insurance, in conjunction with our business partner, BOLDplanning, and we are committed to delivering solid planning on a cost-effective basis, targeted especially to small businesses.“
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, small businesses actually employ more than half of all Americans. The Institute for Business and Home Safety research shows that, at the minimum, one in four businesses never reopen following a disaster.“ Research first conducted by The Ad Council found that 85% of these small businesses understand that emergency preparation is important, yet only four in ten businesses have plans to protect businesses,” said former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.
