LONGWOOD, FL (Feb. 10, 2023) – Insurance Office of America (IOA), the fourth largest privately held insurance brokerage in the United States, is pleased to welcome Paul Copeland to its property and casualty division in Bonita Springs, Florida. As a risk management consultant, Paul will focus primarily on construction, manufacturing, and nonprofit organizations.
“We’re very excited to welcome Paul to the IOA team. Having started in the industry at a young age and, through passion and drive, growing to the experienced insurance professional he is today is impressive. His industry knowledge coupled with his focus on protecting his clients and their businesses is a perfect fit for our culture and how we serve our clients, our team, and our carrier partners. I look forward to all we’ll accomplish together,” said IOA Florida Division President Danny Anderson.
Paul started his insurance career in the mailroom of a Top 10 bank-owned insurance agency at the age of 16.

I’m truly excited to be able to focus on and provide my clients with the high level of support and service they deserve and need versus the bottom-line focus of many agencies in today’s world.”
