About Us

Since First Opening their doors in 1999,

Dave Garese and Cathy Skeen have grown their agency from a four employee firm to a Regional firm with a National reputation. Excel is licensed in all 50 states with 10 licensed agents. We have provided clients innovative solutions and services throughout the United States and many countries internationally. By providing exceptional service and problem solving ability, Excel has earned a reputation as an innovative leader in the industry.

Excel focuses on insurance and surety needs of Commercial and Residential Developers, Commercial and Residential Builders, Commercial Property owners and IT firms using traditional and nontraditional risk financing techniques. We identify ourselves with the industries we serve and are involved with the associations representing them.

Contrary to the insurance broker industry standards there are no sales people at Excel. Excel is a service organization. Rather than spending time soliciting and quoting new business the principals and the employees of Excel spend their time servicing clients needs and solving problems. As a result of Excel’s focus on innovation and service, we have grown entirely through referrals.

In addition to exceptional service, the agency offers a skilled and knowledgeable staff. Excel’s employees have an average of twenty years of commercial insurance experience. We are commonly known for our expertise in putting together risk-financing programs that fit the exact needs of our clients and are as unique as our clients themselves. We are proficient at offering these products at the best possible prices for the levels of coverage provided at a time they are not comely available to others.

At Excel, our commitment is Service!
