National insurance brokerage reveals new look on heels of century anniversary

Minneapolis, Minn. – Oct. 30 2019 – CSDZ, a nationally recognized specialty risk management organization headquartered in Minneapolis, is celebrating 100 years of helping thousands across the U.S. assess risk management, focusing on the unique needs within the construction industry.

CSDZ was initially established in 1919 as a construction contract surety organization to help better serve the needs of its construction clients in Minneapolis. Over the past century, the company has grown significantly and is now one of the largest privately-owned brokerages in America.

In partnership with its parent company, Holmes Murphy, CSDZ provides services to business and industry leaders in the areas of property casualty insurance, employee benefits, professional services, healthcare, captive insurance, private clients, risk management, and loss control.

“While a lot has changed since 1919, CSDZ has always remained dedicated to helping our clients achieve their goals while protecting their best interests,” said Jerry Ouimet, president of CSDZ. “CSDZ looks forward to helping our clients continue to reach their goals over the next 100 years.” 

In addition to its 100-year celebration, CSDZ is launching a new visual identity to showcase its proud history of guiding and protecting construction companies whose heavy lifting and risk-taking have transformed this great nation.

“We’ve spent a lot of time looking back on what has made us successful to date, and we realized that the core beliefs we were founded on are still the foundation of who we want to be in the future,” said Ouimet. “Our new brand identity reflects that foundation and highlights how CSDZ is bold, spirited, and relentless in our quest to help our clients each and every day.”
