FBinsure is led by an experienced and energetic leadership team that includes Russ Martorana (President and CEO of FBinsure), Tom Rogers (Chief Growth Officer), Mark Cuddy (Principal, EVP), Nicole Martorana (Chief Operations Officer), and Greg Arnold (Chief Financial Officer). Russ has been in the insurance business for more than 40 years, first joining the agency in 1979 and serving as President since 1995.
“At FBinsure, we are focused on continual improvement of our products and services to exceed our clients’ needs, and we are committed to developing innovative strategies to address the risks that drive insurance costs,” said Mr. Martorana. “We are thrilled to have found a growth-oriented partner in Patriot, and we look forward to leveraging the platform’s national network and resources to deliver even more comprehensive products to our clients.
