- “I have known Bill Kelly for approximately thirty years. During this time I have found him to be a true professional and a knowledgeable and trusted insurance advisor. It is hard to imagine anyone with a higher degree of professionalism, knowledge, or integrity. My partner and I have relied on Bill to find and secure the best insurance plans possible for our three restaurants and two music venues, and he has never disappointed us. As our companies have grown, we have benefitted from Bill’s ability and eagerness to meet our changing demands and to respond to our expanding needs.
In addition to his insurance expertise, Bill is a very caring and compassionate person, and is wonderfully easy to work with. If we drive him crazy with our questions, last minute needs, or phone calls at inopportune times, he never shows it. Add to that his wonderful sense of humor. Over the past 30 plus years in the restaurant and live music business, we have worked with countless advisors, brokers, and consultants. In that group, Bill stands out; he is one in a million.”
