Our Divisions

Gundermann & Gundermann

Gundermann & Gundermann – a division of EPIC has been addressing the specific and varied challenges of automotive dealerships – large and small – since our founding in 1937. Our exclusive, cost-effective program is one of the industry’s most comprehensive – and delivered by a team of experienced professionals who have been dedicated to meeting the risk management needs of the franchised automobile industry for decades. We focus on clients’ specialized needs, ranging from a single auto or life policy to comprehensive personal or commercial coverage. As a division of EPIC, we bring our clients enhanced claims services, broader market access and greater bargaining power with carriers.

Our team operates with a consultative approach; we get to know your organization inside and out, closely reviewing your existing coverage, pinpointing potential gaps and creating a cost-effective risk management program to meet your unique exposures. As a top national broker (rather than a direct insurance writer), we actively market your program to multiple, top-rated carriers to help you get the best possible coverage at the lowest cost. We are also dedicated claims advocates. Our team not only manages the claims process and negotiates with your carrier when needed, but we also proactively review your claims – and address outstanding issues – to reduce future claims.
