Buckner Connect


Business is relationships.
Let's grow both.

Buckner Connect was started in 2016 over lunch. Our VP of Marketing met up with one of our Client Advisors and the CEO of a large company. They discussed ways to develop and enhance meaningful relationships between their clientele.

The idea of bringing together executives from top companies to network and build connections was powerful. In April of 2016, our first Buckner Connect event came to life. Our goal is simple: to connect and create meaningful relationships with those we insure.

Thanks for the invite today. Buckner should definitely do this again. I enjoyed the meeting and it was good to meet Tom. I sent a LinkedIn request to him and I’ll see if we can get to know them a little better.
