The Barbour Group, a nationally licensed surety and commercial insurance agency specializing in contract and commercial surety, has been selected as a 2012 SmartCEO100 Best-Run Company, a program by SmartCEO magazine. This prestigious program honors 100 companies that are leaders within their industries and have experienced consistent growth. The SmartCEO100 is an exclusive community of the most proactive, profitable CEOs in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Backed by SmartCEO magazine, its 10-year history and its CEO readership of over 45,000, the SmartCEO100 offers Mid-Atlantic CEOs the opportunity to share their stories, learn from their peers and make valuable connections at invitation-only events. These are CEOs of exceptional character, and part of their growth and leadership philosophy is sharing their vision in a community of like-minded peers.
“Continuous improvement and excellence in service delivery are primary objectives at The Barbour Group,” said Karen Barbour, President of The Barbour Group. “Inclusion on the 2012 list of 100 Best-Run Companies is a good indication to me that we’re moving in the right direction as an organization.”

Their brand has created a strong reputation in the community they serve and we are very proud to recognize them and wish them continued success.”
