April 13, 2011 – The Plains, VA - Taylor, Harris Insurance Services, Ltd. (THIS) is pleased to announce that William H. Weeks has agreed to join the Company as its new Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Bill Weeks is a long-time horseman and owner of Sasco Creek Farm in Southport, Connecticut and Wellington, Florida. Sasco Creek Farm is the home of grand prix mount Madison, a two time Grand Prix Association Horse of the Year. He is a board member of the United States Equestrian Team Foundation, and serves as a director of the National Horse Show. Weeks’ family members are competitive equestrians on the national and international levels. Weeks also has years of experience as a successful businessman as the general partner of fresh fruit growers L&S Cranberry, and as a director of Vermont Spirits, a premium vodka distillery. He was part-owner of the Buffalo Sabres hockey team throughout the 1990’s. Weeks is a highly respected horseman in the hunter and jumper world, and THIS is excited to welcome him as a part of its team.

Michael Taylor, co-founder, President and CEO of THIS, said, “Bill Weeks is a greatly respected businessman, both within and outside the horse business. He has a lot to offer and brings a wealth of knowledge to THIS, as well many contacts throughout the equine industry. All of his immediate family members are keen participants in the horse show world. George Harris, Anthony Warrender and I are very excited to have him join us on the Board. He has major enthusiasm, which is great and adds some welcome new blood to our system. Bill has several new, creative ideas for helping us to grow the Company. His background in the sport and extensive connections will also help us with some great sponsorship opportunities that we hope to pursue.”

Bill Weeks, who has been a client and friend of Taylor’s for many years, said, “I have come to know Michael Taylor quite well, and when this opportunity presented itself I was really enthusiastic about getting involved. Taylor, Harris has a unique advantage in the industry in that they represent two top underwriters: Lloyds of London and Great American. Most agencies only represent one. The Company is therefore able to offer a more flexible range of policies to suit individual clients’ needs. I am looking forward to working with Michael and his team. I think Michael is one of the most knowledgeable people in the insurance business. He has built a very strong team, all of his agents were horse people first and then learned the insurance business, which I think is really key. I think that is why they have been as successful as they are.”

It provides insurance to many equestrian disciplines with specialized insurance for all types of equine risk.
