“The Financial Independence Co. Insurance Services competitive advantage is in their pro-active customer service. Almost all (90%) of their employees are bilingual. They add a lot of value in the way they educate our employees. We can heartily recommend FIC to the hospitality industry or any corporation that is looking for a customer service centered organization. FIC is flexible and knows how to meet the needs of its clients.”
Dixie Sweeney, Vice-President, Compensation and Benefits, Wyndham International

"I had the distinct pleasure of working with Financial Independence Company from 1996 until February 2010. Sheila Hartman served as our broker for all our employee insurance benefits. During this time, Sheila and her team provided professional expertise in all our dealings with an ever changing employee benefit environment. She always negotiated premiums in our best interest. In doing so, we were able to provide a rich benefit program to our team members that was also affordable for our company. To say that Sheila goes above and beyond the call of duty is an understatement. I had full confidence that Financial Independence Company continually looked out for the best interest of our company, and our employees. They provide personalized, hands-on service at every step in the process. Our property was recently taken over by Hyatt Hotel Corporation (who now provides our employee insurance benefits), and this is the only reason we are no longer a client of Financial Independence Company. I highly recommend their services to anyone."
