Since its founding in 2003, ACBI has grown from a one-person agency with zero revenue to a multimillion-dollar business. The company has grown by double digits each year since its inception. ACBI specializes in large national commercial real estate portfolios and executive management protection for banks and financial institutions throughout the country. The company grew from dissatisfaction with the results of mergers and consolidations in the insurance industry; its founders wanted to create a firm that was professional, knowledgeable, knew its clients by name and contributed to the community.
