Key Quotes:

  • “Penguins, they work together as a team. You always see them in their colonies. They might look slow on the surface, but under the water, they’re incredibly fast. And, that’s everything that our technology is built around… being fast, efficient, to the point.” – Marc DeLeonibus
  • “I think insurance is absolute. In my opinion, the best business to be in… particularly commercial insurance, because there’s so much ability for agents. I can leverage technology now to really get an edge and grow quickly.” – Marc DeLeonibus
  • “Understanding what I think we all understood from early on, is we need to look at what the seats are on the bus, and figure out how to put those people in those right places. Don’t sacrifice ever, on people. Make sure every single person is truly an A player that brings a complementary skill set to the team.” – Marc DeLeonibus
