Texas Mutual Insurance Company underwrites the group, and HRH administers it. The group’s master agent, Michael Gabrielson of HRH, is a former Hilton hotel manager.
“One of the first things we considered before proposing this group to Texas Mutual was growth potential,” said Gabrielson. “Texas is a prime travel destination. We offer a wide range of tourist attractions located in diverse cities. We host some of the biggest events in the world, such as the South by Southwest Music Festival.”
Texas lodging room revenues increased 44 percent between 2004 and 2007, according to a March 2008 report issued by the Office of the Governor, Economic Development and Tourism. Annual 2007 roomnights sold, the true measure of consumer demand, increased by 3.1 percent over 2006. The report attributes the industry’s growth in part to a healthy Texas economy.
