NORTH PORT, Fla., Nov. 17, 2021—GEICO opened a new local office at 13887 Tamiami Trail in North Port, Florida to serve customers in the community and surrounding areas led by Joe Pignatora.

Pignatora, veteran of the U.S. Navy, has more than 12 years of insurance industry experience. He believes that North Port is the perfect place to open a business, citing the strong sense of community. "We are excited to be part of the tremendous growth happening in the North Port area," he emphasized. Pignatora is a member of the North Port Chamber of Commerce.

Pignatora and his staff members—Elise Pignatora, Heather Thompson and Crystal Wilbur—can help customers purchase car insurance and coverage for renters, condos, RVs, motorcycles, umbrella, identity protection, jewelry, boats, personal watercrafts, commercial auto insurance and more.

"Our team looks forward to working with residents to provide them with great insurance coverage that best suits their individual needs," Pignatora said. "As the largest auto insurer in the state, GEICO has some of the most competitive rates, and we can find the right insurance plan to fit every customer's budget."
