Columbia, SC, August 18, 2014 – Centauri Insurance, a multi-regional homeowners carrier, recently announced that it has begun providing homeowners insurance coverage in South Carolina. Operating in five other states (Alabama, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma), the company already provides homeowners and other coverages to more than 40,000 residents.

Centauri Insurance offers residential insurance products, including homeowners, tenants, dwelling fire, flood and specialty lines of residential hurricane and earthquake.

“Centauri’s entrance into South Carolina’s insurance market should be welcomed by consumers,” said Russ Dubisky, executive director of the South Carolina Insurance News Service. “This is another option for individuals and families as they look for the best fit for their insurance needs.”

Rick Espino, president of Centauri Insurance, says the company’s launch of homeowners coverage offers South Carolina residents a new option from a carrier and management team with a proven track record of providing exemplary customer service. “Centauri operates under a smart, fiscally prudent model to ensure financial stability and responsible business practices,” said Espino. “That means we have the capital and liquidity to pay claims over the short and long term. This financial strength, combined with our commitment to customer service and diverse product offerings, allows us to protect our policyholders against all kinds of hazards.”

Centauri Insurance has a Financial Stability Rating of A – Exceptional from Demotech, an independent financial analysis firm serving the insurance industry, a rating it has enjoyed since 2006.

Wyatt Hall will serve as the regional sales manager for South Carolina. “Centauri’s entry into South Carolina provides agents with additional capacity and a responsiveness that helps them better serve their customers,” he said. “Centauri is a strong, stable and storm-savvy carrier for the agents’ homeowner business that provides a broader range of coverage options. We are looking forward to establishing productive relationships with South Carolina agents.”
