                                      In addition to the top three attributes of achieving Great Results, High Integrity, and being Creative, Ralph is very personable and responsive. It would be a pleasure to work with Ralph in an underwriting role again. If I were given the opportunity to hire him within my agency, I would lobby hard to have him as a member of my team.
