EXPERIENCE

How are we able to specialize in such a wide array of industries and risk analyses? It’s our team. Our collective experience in both finance and insurance is distinct and unequalled in our industry. While most insurance consultants focus on one particular solution, we’ve discovered that a comprehensive understanding of risk and specializations is what delivers tangible value to our clients and prepares your business for future success.

For us, education and practical experience is paramount. Nearly all of our consultants have at least one industry designation and they bring their specified knowledge and attention to detail to your organization. Moreover, we are committed to sharing what we know with you in a way that is easy to access and understand.

Meet our team members.

In Memoriam of Joseph R. Teresi, CPCU
Former Partner, Co-Owner
Commercial Insurance Consultants
CIC Group of Companies

With heavy hearts, we inform you that Joe entered into rest on February 3, 2014 following a valiant battle against a terminal form of cancer. Our incredible colleague and friend was taken from us much too soon. His vision for CIC will be seen through by his dear friend and business partner, Timothy W. McMullen, and their colleagues. Joe will be missed by family, friends and contemporaries, but never forgotten. Joe's obituary may be found here.

Joe joined CIC in 2012 after holding the position of CEO for one of the 40 largest insurance agencies in the country. He brought 17 years of insurance company expertise with one of the largest and most successful insurers in the industry. Having served in high level positions on both the brokerage and carrier sides of the business, Joe was uniquely qualified to advise clients on how best to manage their risk and navigate the insurance industry. His knowledge of the top brokers in the country, the most reputable carriers, the alternative tools and mechanisms for managing risk along with the services and resources available, proved an advantage to our clients. His mark on Commercial Insurance Consultants and the CIC Group of Companies will forever remain impressed upon the CIC entities, his colleagues and clients, and will continue to influence the business' practices and direction going forward. We intend to honor Joe's memory, always.
