CBIZ Acquires Commercial Insurance Book from Alliance

SARASOTA, FLA. (May 4, 2017) – CBIZ announced that it has acquired the commercial insurance book of business from Alliance Insurance and added Alliance’s VP of Sales, James Cirillo, Jr., as a business partner in its growing Sarasota, Florida office. The acquisition makes CBIZ the largest underwriter of Community Associations in the region.

In his role as Vice President, Cirillo brings experience in community associations, hospitality and premier client services. For community association and private clients, Cirillo identifies potential areas of loss through policy audits and risk analysis and recommends comprehensive risk solutions to protect their assets. He provides education and knowledge to both by drawing on his background and market specialization. Serving as a trusted advisor, Cirillo brings energy, professionalism and genuine care to each client interaction.

“Jimmy’s expertise in the community association and private client markets complements our already strong presence in those industries,” says Keith Mercier, President of CBIZ Florida-West Coast. “His integrity and consultative approach are a great fit with our team. We look forward to working with him and continuing to grow that area of our operations.”

In his first month with CBIZ, Cirillo has already provided service and value to six new community association clients. His ability to help clients open their minds and understand the areas of exposure they may not even realize exist is one of the many benefits he brings to clients.

“CBIZ is known for its Midwestern values and boy is it true,” says Cirillo. “Their focus on putting clients first aligns with my core values and the people here are truly best in class. I am thankful to be part of this culture and to be able to draw on the comprehensive services offered by the corporation.”

Cirillo earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance with a minor in Economics from Florida State University. He started in the insurance industry in 2003 at Alliance, most recently serving as VP of Sales and Office Manager for commercial lines. While there, he handled all agency roles, including personal and commercial sales, account manager, processor, office manager and bookkeeper.

Based in the Sarasota office, Cirillo will work closely with consultants in all six CBIZ Florida offices, including Boca Raton, Clearwater, Tampa, Orlando and Delray Beach. Together, they provide a full array of the professional services offered by the organization nationwide.
