Our Values

Each client’s culture has different moving parts that make their company unique.  We uncover those idiosyncrasies and implement a solution.  Often times the right solution isn’t conventional and hasn’t yet been ‘created’, so it’s our responsibility to think differently.

Our moral compass balances and ensures we do the right things for your business, your employees and our employees. Every time.

We blend practical experience with gut instinct to combat the constantly changing the world in which we live. The result is expertise to protect and grow your business and employees.

We devote our time and resources to learn your story, your culture and your plans for the future, giving us a strong sense of ownership in everything we do for you.

We understand your business. We understand benefits. Because of our unique expertise, we can give you the thoughtful leadership your business needs and the confidence your employees trust.

We are active with our clients. We are engaged and proactive. We celebrate when they jump ahead and are the first in line to offer the support they need in tougher times.

We work to cultivate a strong and empowering work environment for our employees and yours. We implement an intentional culture and level of engagement, producing a tremendous impact on your team’s morale, confidence, and trust.

Testimonials

Intrepid has been a trusted and knowledgeable partner of Alpine’s in multiple areas. As we navigate the byzantine facets of health care reform, they share the deep education they have gained on the law both as a firm and via extensive access to seminars. For several years, Intrepid has assisted us with finding, pricing, and negotiating favorable benefits renewals, bringing to bear actuarial resources when necessary to complement their market share leverage with carriers to bring our costs down. Additionally, Intrepid’s team is comprised of downright good people who are enjoyable to work with.

Alek Orloff, Partner, Alpine Waste & Recycling, Commerce City, CO

As a small business owner, I truly value our relationship with Intrepid and the guidance that they provide. They make sure we’re in compliance with the laws, including health reform, and provide us with the notices that we need to distribute. They give us HR support and help our employees with all of their questions and claim issues. Intrepid is very responsive to our needs and helps us to control our costs. They are a true business partner.

Bill Fowler, Owner, Verso Networks, Denver, CO

Intrepid is diligent in keeping us “in the know” for all the changes in the employee benefit world and make a difficult insurance climate understandable. They have taken the time and effort to get to know our business and our employees at a level that makes them invaluable for aiding in our decision making at renewal time. They assist our employees on a personal level with issues that inevitably arise in a timely and knowledgeable manner. Over the years their services have only strengthened and grown while the personnel assisting us have stayed the same. We look forward to many more years of working together as a team.

Geri Ann Rosier, Finance Manager, Cator, Ruma & Associates, Co., Lakewood, CO

We have worked with Intrepid since 2010 when they stepped in to help us with our growing employee base. They have been instrumental in helping us set up a benefits plan that controls costs while still providing strong benefits to our employees. Our Intrepid team makes sure we are in compliance with the various laws and their knowledge of the industry and current legislation keeps us informed and ahead of the game. Their responsiveness to our needs is immediate and we rely on them for HR guidance, employee education and claims resolution. We would highly recommend working with Intrepid.
