Grand Opening Reception for Qualsure Insurance
QualSure Insurance Corporation, Florida's newest personal lines insurance company, hosted a grand opening reception recently at its headquarters in Sarasota. U.S. RE Companies, one of three shareholders, was instrumental in forming the privately held company.
Robert Thomas (Tom) Savage, Jr., the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, was introduced to the insurance community at the reception by Board Chairman John N. Lombardo. Mr. Savage joined QualSure recently after serving as President and CEO of the Seibels Bruce Group in Columbia, SC.
QualSure already is one of the top 10 groups writing homeowners' insurance in Florida. The Company began operations earlier this year with 83,000 homeowners' policies taken out of the Florida Joint Underwriting Association and the Florida Windstorm Underwriting Association.
"We're excited about the opportunity to take part in Florida's dynamic growth," Mr. Savage said. "QualSure is committed to Florida for the long term. We plan to name independent agents throughout the State and gradually build our book of business by providing the highest quality coverage, security, and claims service."
Ralph Haben, former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, welcomed guests and congratulated QualSure for "bringing an important new market for personal lines insurance to Florida." The Company's home office is located at 506 Sarasota Qual, P. O. Box 3918, Sarasota, FL 34236. Tel: 941-363-0927. Fax: 941-363-0876.
