This year, our company found an opportunity to reinvigorate our brand. Shea Guercio Partners, formally known as SGP Advisors, is the culmination of our established culture and service offerings. Through our existing ownership, we will continue to maintain the same dedicated service to which our clients are accustomed. While SGP Advisors may be a new name, our commitment to our clients remains steadfast. We are excited for this new chapter and look forward to our continued growth.
Realizing that some of our colleagues and clients may not know the history of our firm and its 28-year tenure, we thought it would be beneficial to provide a brief narrative of our origination and how we arrived at this point. Originally founded in 1995 by Vern Barclay, our organization solely provided lawyers professional liability insurance in Florida. Throughout the next decade, our firm expanded to offer additional lines of coverage and clients across the United States. In 2012, Mike Shea and Talyn Guercio acquired a majority interest and assumed management control. In 2021, Jack Compton and Harrison Tropp became shareholders which prompted this latest and final iteration.
Throughout the lifespan of our organization, we have continued to adapt to meet the ever-changing demands of our industry. We believe that SGP Advisors is the best representation of who we are and where we are headed.
