Shapiro Insurance Group Acquires Cabell Insurance Group
July 5, 2009
Shapiro Insurance Group announced the recent acquisition of Cabell Insurance Group, following a decision to sell the agency by the family of the late David Cabell. At this time, the agency will remain Cabell Insurance Group. The Fernandina Beach Cabell office has relocated to the Publix Shopping Center on 14th Street. In addition to offices in Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and Fleming Island, the Fernandina Beach office will serve as a fourth location for the two agencies.
“Our excellent customer service skills in addition to our professionalism will make this a seamless transition for all Cabell and Shapiro clients,” says Joel Shapiro, President/Principal Agent of Shapiro Insurance Group. “This new development has reaffirmed my belief in the strength and stability of the insurance business.”
“Mr. Shapiro has a strong reputation for being honest and dependable among his clients and community and is an excellent choice for continuing Dave Cabells’ legacy,” says Sheona Fanelli, Operations Manager of Cabell Insurance Group.
The decision to sell Cabell Insurance Group came after Mr. Cabell passed away. Cabell began as a Nationwide agent and transitioned to a full-service independent agent in 2007. The Cabell agency took over Lynette Blackwelder’s Nationwide agency in 1999, and later acquired The Crawford Agency, another local independent group.
Cabell Insurance Group will be hosting an Open House celebration at the Fernandina Beach location on October 29 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Open House will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony, door prizes, free insurance quotes, hors d’oeuvres, and other activities.
For over 20 years, Shapiro Insurance Group has been providing both personal and commercial lines of insurance for the Jacksonville-area and beyond. As an independent insurance agent licensed in 15 states, Shapiro Insurance Group represents a wide-variety of insurance companies to fit customer needs.
