Morris & Garritano ranked #1 on Pacific Coast Business Times 2018 Best Places to Work List

Morris & Garritano Insurance (M&G) is once again reaffirming their position as a top employer. The Pacific Coast Business Times recently released their annual list of Best Places to Work on the Central Coast, and M&G came in at #1. CEO Brendan Morris is especially honored to be recognized for having a workplace that fosters collaboration, trust, support, and a little bit of fun. “We say it time and time again, but Morris & Garritano is the company it is today because of our employees.”

The Pacific Coast Business Times’ anonymous survey gathered information about M&G’s employee-focused culture, 133-year history, community involvement and outreach, as well as other recognitions they have received over the years. In 2017 they were included in Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies and were named Insurance Journal’s “Overall Best Agency to Work For” in the country.

As a third-generation family owned company, M&G is committed to living their core values: always be improving, love what you do, do the right thing, build collaborative relationships, and go the extra mile. Morris knows that what they have at M&G is unique. As he says, “Most people don’t grow up saying ‘I want to be in insurance’ yet we feel we can teach anyone about that. What’s important to us is building relationships with customers. We’re passionate about it.”

With offices in both San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, Morris & Garritano shows no sign of slowing down.  Their family of 130 employees will continue to grow by focusing on “…hiring the right people and staying dedicated to our clients, our employees, and our mission and values.” according to Morris.
