Merchants' Team Approach
Our underwriting teams combine the knowledge and experience of a group of underwriters. Merchants' teams have a deep understanding of surety and the people who use it. Merchants' agents benefit from the innovative ideas, the quality decision-making, superior underwriting and first-class service that come with the team approach.
Leading our teams are the Assistant Vice Presidents, each with the experience and commitment to service you expect from Merchants Bonding Company.
