Press Release


NAPLES, FL (August 8, 2013) – The August issue of Gulfshore Business magazine announced Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners (BKS) as a finalist in their Best of Business Awards in the best insurance brokerage category. The finalists were decided by Gulfshore Business readers, and nearly 4,000 individuals voted online over a three week period in May.

Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners is an insurance brokerage firm with offices in Tampa, Naples and Sarasota. The Gulfshore Business award recognized their Naples office for its commitment to providing holistic risk management and insurance solutions for companies and sophisticated individuals on the West Coast of Florida. In addition to being viewed as a trusted advisor to clients, Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners was awarded the 2013 Tampa Bay Times #1 Top Places to Work Award and the 2013 Tampa Bay Business Journal Best Places to Work Award, demonstrating the value their corporate culture brings to colleagues.

“We are honored to be chosen by Gulfshore Business magazine as one of the best independent insurance brokerage firms,” said Garrett Gardi, Managing Advisor of the BKS Naples office. “Our colleagues in Naples are passionate about providing exceptional service to their clients, and their proactive stewardship has resulted in the peace of mind and long-term financial security of our clients.”

“We are exceptionally proud to be a finalist because the voters had to write-in our company name rather than selecting from a pre-determined multiple choice,” said Elizabeth Krystyn, Partner at BKS.

2013 was the first year that Gulfshore Business has conducted the Best of Business Awards. The final tallies were counted by the editors of Gulfshore Business and the complete results are published in their August issue.
