Meet the Team


I chose TSR for my contractors because of the responsiveness of the underwriters to my submissions and questions.
Their coverage and product enhancements, like Swimming Pool Pop-Up, help me compete and get the order.
I really like the new clearance email box for my submissions. They get cleared faster and I get notifications that I am reserved.

Meet the Team

  • Brad Tennant

    September 16, 1974 was a big day for the insurance industry, Brad Tennant decided to join the business! Following in his father’s footsteps Brad’s career spans several decades. Working with industry giants including Allstate, Marsh, Reliance, and various divisions with AIG including National Union, Lexington and Landmark Companies, Brad made his mark with hard work and tenacity. Over his 45 years he has worked with state departments of insurance, underwritten and managed varied books of business, managed MGUs from the carrier side and witnessed the birth of “Montrose”.

    In 1999, Brad’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to start out on his own with the goal of developing a premier MGU facility focusing on subcontractors. He wanted to offer the “little guy” the broad and rounded coverage they needed at a reasonable price. Twenty years later, he is still going strong as a self-professed “insurance geek”. He starts every day in the office with “It’s a lovely day for insurance”. While working as President/CEO of Tennant Special Risk, Brad mentors the growing staff, provides a seasoned perspective on underwriting trends versus historical philosophies, and digs into coverage forms whenever he can.

    There are not many individually owned MGUs left in the contractors arena. Brad’s leadership and entrepreneurial spirit are a benefit to not only the contractors marketplace but the industry as a whole for over 45 years.
