David Bondy, Founder And CEO Of LUBA Workers’ Comp, receives the Top Entrepreneur Award From Mississippi Business Journal
Kelli Bondy Troutman and Trent Bondy of LUBA Workers’ Comp received Mississippi Business Journal’s Top Entrepreneurs award on behalf of David Bondy. The breakfast event was held at the Old Capitol Inn on Thursday, March 29.
Jackson, Ms. — David Bondy, Founder and CEO of LUBA Workers’ Comp, was named one of the 2018 Top Entrepreneurs by Mississippi Business Journal, a group of distinguished individuals who were selected based on their impact on Mississippi businesses, their professional accomplishments, and community involvement.
“I met David several years ago and enjoyed hearing LUBA’s story from its founding to what it has become today,” said Publisher, Mississippi Business Journal Alan Turner. “LUBA’s commitment to the businesses and workers here in Mississippi is what sets them apart. They are very deserving of this award.”
Long before starting LUBA, Bondy had a significant impact at a time when employers in Mississippi and neighboring states were struggling with unaffordable premiums and poor service. In the late ’80s and early ’90s standard workers’ comp carriers were operating inefficiently and passing along the excessive cost to employers. Bondy was instrumental in forming some of the first self-insured funds in Mississippi, which provided much needed alternatives for businesses seeking workers’ compensation coverage. The list includes the Mississippi Municipal Association, the Mississippi Automobile Dealers Association, and the Builders & Contractors Association of Mississippi (BCAM). He went on to found LUBA Workers’ Comp in 1991 and it has since grown to be the 4th largest workers’ compensation carrier in the state of Mississippi.
