Polenzani Benefits Joins Bolton & Company

PASADENA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bolton & Company, one of the nation’s largest privately owned insurance
brokers, announced today that Polenzani Benefits, a leading
Pasadena-based brokerage that specializes in Employee Benefits, has
joined its organization.

As part of the transition, Polenzani’s staff will join Bolton’s Employee
Benefits team at its Pasadena headquarters, with President Tom G.
Polenzani moving into the role of Director of Employee Benefits.

For Bolton President and CEO Steve Brockmeyer, the decision to merge the
local firm into Bolton’s operations was as much a strategic move as it
was an organic one.

“There are a number of parallels between Bolton & Company and Polenzani
Benefits that make this partnering all the more perfect,” said
Brockmeyer. “Our organizations were raised in the same community, share
the same core ethics toward our clients and offer decades of industry
expertise and experience. This really benefits everyone involved,
especially those we serve and hope to serve one day.”

Tom G. Polenzani highlights the partnership as the result of an evolving
five year relationship between the two firms, and said the decision
marks a big step forward for both Bolton and Polenzani Benefits.

“What we’ve always offered – our expertise, our client-focused approach
and the goodwill we’ve built for more than 40 years – remains the same,”
said Polenzani. “By joining Bolton’s team of experts and industry
leaders, we are able to continue to provide the highest quality of
service with even more resources available, and that’s incredibly
exciting.”

Founded in 1975 by Thomas A. Polenzani, Polenzani Benefits joins Bolton
as a regional leader in the Employee Benefits marketplace.
