Steven Bennett, President:

“Our relationship with Tolman & Wiker stretches back for well over 25 years. The services provided and attention to our specific business needs has been exemplary. Not just from helping us with our day to day insurance and risk assessment needs, but also in helping us to look forward and plan for the future. They introduce us to new products and services if they think it may benefit us. This is more of a Partnership than a Vendor/Client relationship.”

Santa Barbara Zoo

Rich Block, Chief Executive Officer:

As a nonprofit organization that receives no tax support, we are very careful about how we spend our money and direct resources.  When it comes to our Worker’s Compensation insurance, we are particularly sensitive to operational challenges and to the constant changes in the insurance marketplace.  Since 2008 we have depended on Tolman & Wiker to address our insurance needs and we could not be more pleased!  

Tolman & Wiker has been an effective advocate for the Zoo, providing the best options for coverage and carriers and meeting with the Zoo team on a regular basis to review claims and identify opportunities to improve our operations.  Through the efforts of Tolman & Wiker, we have been able to do a better job of managing expenses and creating a safer work place for our employees.  Besides being a great partner in handling the Zoo’s insurance coverage, Tolman & Wiker has gone the extra mile and supports our fundraising efforts.”
