Following are testimonials from some of PCIA’s clients/ACEC/MI members and Executive Director:

We’ve been with PCIA for over 30 years, and part of my responsibility is to secure insurance coverage each year. PCIA provides on-site training for our staff on topics such as contractual language, reducing risk, and successful negotiation. In short, PCIA is an extension of Spalding DeDecker; they are a trusted resource for us.

Steve Benedettini,

President and CFO, Spalding DeDecker

PCIA has been there for us with contract review services, marketplace analysis of our options, customized educational sessions for our staff and the critical day-to-day servicing of our account. They also provide assistance with our mergers and assist with assessing the various options associated with a deal, and help formulate insurance packages that protect all the parties involved.

Vice President of Corporate Services, OHM Advisors

For many years PCIA has represented countless A/E firms in Michigan and has been actively involved in ACEC/ Michigan. We have requested help from PCIA with insurance, risk management, contract, and training issues, and every time they have stepped up to provide valuable information and support. Their active involvement demonstrates they go beyond just selling insurance; they genuinely care about the A/E industry and the people involved.
