Capstone celebrates 20th birthday

Capstone Associated Services has celebrated its 20-year anniversary.

Launched in 1998, the Houston-based captive insurance provider serves middle market businesses.

Capstone provides clients across the US with turnkey services under a joint engagement with its affiliated law firm, the Feldman Law Firm.

According to Capstone president Charles Earls, the company’s success has been driven by their innovative use of the turnkey approach.

Earls explained: “Capstone was the first to design a comprehensive turnkey solution. Our effective administration of this comprehensive package has been a key reason for the solid record of long-term client relationships.”

Stewart Feldman, Capstone CEO and general counsel, stated: “We are extremely proud of the fine work that team Capstone has accomplished over the last 20 years, with operations led by its president, Charles Earls. As [he] transitions Capstone’s presidency in 2018 to Jeff Carlson, Capstone is poised for another round of growth.”
