Mr. Stoops purchased 40% of the shares and was appointed to the Board Of Directors for Prime Source Management Inc. He assumed the responsibility for sales and marketing.

During that time, Prime Source Management established a large deducible policy with a $750,000 per occurrence with Lumberman’s Underwriting Alliance. They hired their own licensed in house claims adjusters. They also established an escrow account of $2 million for claims reserves. From 2004 to 2007 the company grew from $50 million in revenue to $145 million in revenue in the mid comp range trades market. They were among the fastest growing PEO’s in south Texas and the fastest growing client for LUA. During that time, they also maintained a 12% to 18% loss ratio through stringent Safety and Risk Management and diligent claims management. When Mr. Stoops sold his shares in 2008, Prime Source Management was running $145 million annually on a $750,000 deductible with $4.5 million claims reserve fund fully funded at a 4.5% net of $6.5 million to the shareholders annually.
