Poms headquarters

Recognizing a growing industry need for creative problem solving and outside-the-box thinking, Dave Poms founded Poms & Associates in 1991. For more than 30 years, the company grew carefully and deliberately, opening branch offices strategically located to serve Poms' clients. Since our inception, Poms' commitment to guiding clients through an informed and comprehensive purchasing process has remained constant. With a focus on controlled growth, Poms maintains the highest caliber of customer service, allowing us to foster long and productive relationships with every client. Every Poms broker is committed to their clients' best interests, without exception. That's the Poms & Associates difference.

Trusted Partners – Proven Solutions

Our collective knowledge and experience serving the needs of public and private entities makes us more than just advisors. For our clients, we're trusted partners, helping them understand their organizations' unique needs and risks. Poms is a proven resource in providing innovative and cost-effective solutions, equipped to meet any needs. Our custom solutions may involve risk control services; selecting and implementing new employee benefit plans; acting as an advocate for clients facing property claims; crisis planning; product liability; and retention and alternative financing programs.

The best insurance? Knowledge

Poms & Associates is committed to the philosophy that knowledge is the best insurance. By serving as not just an insurance broker, but also an educator, Poms helps organizations adopt risk-management protocols that are efficient, proactive, comprehensive and self-administering. Poms bases our relationships with clients on a complete understanding of their needs. Our practices are transparent, and our goal is simple: giving every client the knowledge, time, products and services necessary to limit their exposure and expand their opportunities.
