My relationship with Barhyt Henry of Elite Insurance has been extremely beneficial to my company and myself in a variety of ways. Barhyt assisted us immensely with our insurance needs during the establishment of Vericom Global Solutions. In 2009 when we started Vericom his guidance helped us navigate the many issues related to facility, inventory and liability insurance. Vericom is a company that competes with established multi-billion dollar organizations and the support provided by Elite Insurance was more than helpful.

During the last five years I have worked with Barhyt and Elite Insurance not only for my commercial insurance requirements but also for my individual personal insurance needs. His and their support is greater appreciated, valued and timely.
