Wes Bradford, President / CEO

If there's one thing I'm obsessed about, it's being the best. We do whatever it takes to win; second place isn't good enough for us. What sets us apart is this: At Clifford & Bradford, we go out of our way to treat our clients like people — not just dollar signs — and as such, we operate by the Golden Rule.

I've also learned that no matter how good you might be, it takes a team to win big. That's why I've carefully built a dream team of like-minded, "do or die" insurance industry pros to pull it off. Right here you can meet my elite team and find just the right expert to help guide your business to a new level of prosperity.

Wes’s Way For Success!
Six Principles That Have Guided My Actions

BE FIRST
There's tremendous power in being first. People hardly remember second. Be known as the innovator in your industry.

I

BE ADAPTABLE
Quickly adjust to new people, conditions and situations. Meet people where they are, not where you want them to be.

II

BE HUMBLE
Being humble certainly doesn't mean you are weak or lack confidence. It actually means you are self-assured and believe what you bring to the table is invaluable.

III

IV

BUILD A WINNING TEAM
It doesn't matter how good you might be, you still need others to help you truly win big. (When in doubt, see Rule #3)

V

OFFER THE BEST
When you have the best product or service, you can boldly go into your market ready to take over the world. It's that simple.

VI

GIVE BACK
A wise man once said, "Good givers are great getters." You can't just take; real winners ultimately discover that sowing and reaping is the true secret to success.

All Licensed Agents Can Sell You Insurance,
But... All Licensed Agents Are Certainly NOT Experts.

FACT: Our team of experts know as much about insurance as any other firm in the industry.
(Even our receptionist is a licensed agent!)

RESULT: You get the best possible coverage from a committed team. At Clifford & Bradford we’ve truly ‘got your back’!

The Clifford & Bradford team is made up of highly trained insurance experts. Collectively, we can write ANY kind of insurance due to the vast amount of experience with the various industry types, our diversified knowledge base and expertise in specific areas.

For example, there are many different types of Liability Coverage; each is very unique and very specialized. Therefore, it takes an expert eye to know exactly what your business needs for maximum coverage.

Let’s face it: Good insurance advice can be hard to find for many businesses. Many websites contradict each other, and you never know where to look for solid information in the first place.

It's natural to ask friends, family members, or trusted professionals for advice. However, unless they're highly trained in ever-changing topics such as Worker's Compensation or Health Laws, you could be in for a rude, costly surprise when it comes time to make a claim on your policy.

Enter Clifford & Bradford Insurance. We are experts in one thing, and one thing only: Insurance. That's why our agents can help your company MAKE BETTER, MORE INFORMED Insurance decisions.
