Delaware Business Times: Fastest 50

By Insurance

 

BHI provides insurance brokerage and risk-management consulting services to clients in the mid-Atlantic region. We offer business insurance, home and auto insurance, employee benefits, and are adding safety and human-resources consulting within the last two years. Our foundational principles are: Communicate, be accountable, act with integrity, and constantly evolve. Through these principles, we hope to show our company’s philosophy of “our product is our people.”

What have been the biggest obstacles your company has faced over the past three years, and how did you overcome them? In
February 2016, I purchased the company and rebranded. Executing a new vision with a new leadership team was challenging, yet very exciting and successful.

Looking back, what’s the biggest mistake you made and what would you do differently if you could?
I prefer not to look back. We are where we are today thanks to our past decisions, both good and bad, and I would not change where we stand today.

What is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned over the past three years?
A work/life balance is a must not only for employees, but those responsible for making very tough decisions on a daily basis. One must take the time to celebrate victories.

How do you keep your team inspired and focused on the future?
Our culture is a top priority and we reward our team for working hard. Our common goal is to take care of our clients. Our client-service model is born from my obsession with providing the absolute best service experience every time.

DBT40 Honoree: John Boykin

By Announcements

John Boykin

Age: 36
Title: President/CEO
Workplace: B+H Insurance, LLC (BHI)

A former bartender and two-time college dropout, John Boykin entered the insurance game at age 23 for $8 per hour and only six hours of work per week. But he pushed himself, became a credible advisor, went to school full time, and six months later he was working full-time in the insurance industry. He gained the experience needed to eventually produce more than $1,000,000 in new business every year since 2007. As CEO at B+H Insurance, LLC (BHI), Boykin oversees more than 25 employees in five business areas.

Boykin volunteers and supports local charities, including the American Heart Association, atTAcK Addiction, Autism Delaware, the Boys and Girls Club, Delaware Hospice, the Elena Delle Donne Foundation, First Tee of Delaware, Habitat for Humanity, the Ministry of Caring, the Ronald McDonald House and the Mary Campbell Center. He also brings that philanthropic nature back to the office, forgoing a portion of his salary each year to reward employees for excellent performance as part of B+H’s “Pay for Performance” compensation program.
