Franklin Street has added risk management and commercial property & casualty insurance veteran Ted Holler as Director of Insurance Services to focus on commercial real estate portfolios in the Carolinas and across the Southeast.
Holler has been working in the insurance and risk management brokerage industry since 2003, bringing expertise in all commercial product types, including complex property placements for high-value portfolios. He uses his technical skills and years of experience to assist clients with coverage analysis, risk management strategies, compliance, and negotiating the best-possible coverage and pricing to improve the value of their investments by reducing his clients’ total cost of risk.
“Franklin Street is one of very few firms in commercial real estate to have insurance as part of its service portfolio,” said Tom Kersting, President of Franklin Street Insurance Services. “Adding Ted is just another step to improve Franklin Street’s full-service insurance offerings, and we’re confident our clients will benefit greatly from his expertise.”
Franklin Street Insurance Services focuses on insuring commercial real estate nationwide, by brokering insurance products for private and institutional owners and managers of most commercial property types. The team also specializes in supporting the acquisition efforts of active buyers and offers actionable risk management and claims advisory services. Franklin Street has brokered insurance on commercial property with a total insurable value (TIV) of $10 billion and built an impressive portfolio of more than 275,000 units of multifamily property in less than a decade. Franklin Street represents a diverse roster of clients from small operators that own a single asset to major corporations with more than $1 billion in TIV.
“Our insurance services are comprehensive and we have more experience in the multifamily space than any other firm. Further, by leveraging our unique platform, knowledge, and niche focus, we are ideally positioned to serve owners and managers of all commercial asset types,” Holler said. “We’re able to help clients assess their needs, protect their investments by securing the right coverage, and improve their net operating income through reduced costs. All of this is achieved in a manner that allows our clients to remain focused on their primary goals and objectives.”
“(Franklin Street) has saved us money, they’ve saved us time. They are good partners,” said Zachery Oseland, Compliance Director for Avesta Communities, which manages 11,000 apartment units in Florida and Texas.
Holler began his career as a middle market agent at Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, later serving as area Assistant Vice President of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (AJG) when AJG acquired Liberty Mutual’s middle market book of business. Holler earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Troy University and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of South Florida. He currently holds the professional designation of Accredited Adviser in Insurance (AAI).
