Key Quotes:

  • “We are decidedly transparent about where we are on things. And we know that we have as much to learn when we enter a new space as a value we have to offer. And so we like to do it carefully and in fast iterations.” – Brian Fritton
  • “I think to that extent, the folks who use something like this are going to be able to demand better pricing from the carriers, they’re going to be able to write more through the carriers, which is going to mean better pricing.” – Brian Fritton
  • “A couple impactful things to save your skin…two factors on everything, keep your computers updated, and train your people. Those three things are almost free.” – Brian Fritton
