Centauri Insurance Ranked Among Gulf Coast's Fastest Growing Companies

Centauri Insurance, a property and casualty insurance provider operating across nine states, was recently ranked #99 among the Business Observer’s 2017 Gulf Coast Top 500 companies reflecting a 28 percent growth from the previous year’s listings.

The Business Observer annually ranks the top 500 companies from Polk to Collier County by their gross revenues. This year's ranking is based on 2016 gross revenues which topped $151.6 million compared with gross revenues of $118.3 million in 2015 which previously earned Centauri the #102 spot. Centauri has achieved this recognition for the past four years due to their financial strength, solid performance and continued growth in the insurance industry.

To provide needed space to accommodate its consistent pattern of growth, Centauri recently completed construction of a new 30,000-square-foot facility which now houses their corporate headquarters in Lakewood Ranch.

“We are pleased to be recognized among this group of accomplished businesses along Florida’s Gulf Coast for the third year in row,” said Rick Espino, president and CEO of Centauri. “We look forward to continued success and growth as we expand our geographic market and range of product offerings throughout the country.”

Centauri Insurance is a property and casualty insurance company based in Sarasota, FL which currently operates across nine states with continual plans for expansion. The company’s success and growth is founded on a culture of financial stability, unparalleled customer service and solid coverage. Visit for more information.
