“We were referred to Keith Yam and the bond department at KPD Insurance when we needed help securing a performance bond for a very large project on the big island of Hawaii. Keith took the time to not only gather detailed financial information, but also made sure there was a thorough understanding of our operations, management team, and the project that needed the large bond. Keith has a thorough knowledge of the bonding process and helped us develop our financial statement presentation to be seen in the best light. With his very specific recommendations and guidance, we were able to obtain bond approval for the project with an excellent surety company. Keith and his team are very professional and dedicated. They demonstrated to us their ability to deliver and I highly recommend the bond team at KPD Insurance.”
