Klayton Caldiero, Vice president and broker, tKg Wholesale Brokerage
Klayton Caldiero started in the insurance industry by accident in 2001. His first job was as a file clerk at a local agency, which progressed into cold-calling prospects from the phone book. His desire to know more about the insurance products he was touting quickly moved him into an account manager position, which translated into a production role working exclusively with homebuilders. From there, Caldiero decided to become a wholesale broker, using his retail experience to assist his agents with both construction and non-construction casualty risks.
Today, Caldiero‘s breadth of expertise spans a diverse portfolio of clients, including manufacturing, environmental, hospitality and real estate. He remains committed to assisting independent agents with specialized solutions for hard-to-place risks. This approach has helped him maintain double-digit growth annually since 2009, including 37% growth from 2015 to 2016.
