Meet Michael – TMIB Bar and Restaurant Insurance Specialist

You might have seen our recent post called: Michael’s Visit to Diablo Taco and wondered:

Who is Michael, why is he going to Diablo Taco and why is Tegner-Miller Insurance Brokers telling us about it?

The first question is easy.  I am Michael, a commercial insurance broker at TMIB who specializes in bar and restaurant insurance programs.

I grew up in southern California and found an early passion for the restaurant industry. From my first job bussing tables and running food to taking on larger roles my enthusiasm and devotion to the industry has only grown. I believe my hands-on bar/restaurant experience provides me with a unique combination: knowledge of bars, restaurants and insurance.

I pride myself on working side by side with restaurant and bar owners to address the insurable aspects of their operation and help them navigate the often complex area of risk management. I strive to provide the best possible customer service and find the best policy for the clients’ needs.  Although I specialize in bars and restaurants I am not limited to that niche and can help clients in any sector.

The second question is also easy.  I went to Diablo Taco because they are one of our many great clients and TMIB likes to patronize its clients.

Why talk about it?  We are talking about it because we like to tell others about good things. TMIB plans to continue to post blogs about my experiences at our clients’ bars and restaurants.

I am excited to tell others about our many great clients.  Whether I am talking about my dining experiences – complete with details about menus, specific plates, ambiance or the story behind the restaurant I will be posting many blogs about my adventures.  I hope you will find them informative and they help you discover a little gem.  Just tell them TMIB sent you!!

The information provided in our blogs are very brief overviews that do not provide complete descriptions of any coverage described nor do they list all of the important factors one should evaluate before deciding on a policy. Please speak to your broker at TMIB about your specific insurance needs and for more detailed information about types of coverage.
