EPIC Advances Strategic Business Plan in Southern California’s Inland Empire
EPIC (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center), a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage, announced that they are taking key steps in advancing their business strategy in Southern California’s Inland Empire.
Following the acquisition of Ontario’s Homeplace Insurance Brokers, Inc. in January 2013, EPIC is now formally launching their Inland Empire Division, under the leadership of Managing Principal, Dan Ryan.
An insurance brokerage industry veteran, Ryan has lived in the Inland Empire and worked in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties for more than 30 years. He was previously a managing principal in EPIC’s Orange and Irvine offices as well as the President of Calco Insurance Brokers & Agents prior to EPIC’s acquisition of Calco in 2007. Building and leading EPIC’s operations in the Inland Empire will now be Ryan’s sole focus.
“As we expand our geographic footprint, the Inland Empire has become EPIC’s ninth location across California,” said Ryan. “We plan to aggressively expand our property and casualty and employee benefits practices, as well as our niche transportation practice led by Judy Busam and her Homeplace team. We view the Inland Empire as a significant strategic opportunity for EPIC and expect great results here in the years ahead.”
