In 2015, Weston Corbett joined the agency, preserving its legacy and dedication to providing premium insurance products and exceptional service. Corbett & Associates specializes in personal, high net worth, investment and commercial property, and business insurance.
The agency's success is attributed to its dedicated team, including Operations Manager Kathy Camitses, Agent Kelly Pink, and Senior Account Executive Cindy Warner, as well as a number of other experienced team members at Corbett & Associates. Their team’s success is clear through the agency’s impressive 92% client retention rate.
