SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 24, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In a recent article, Silicon Valley Business Journal highlighted the region’s fastest growing companies, proving that for innovators, there is always opportunity to grow. EPIC, a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage based in San Mateo, was one of 52 companies to receive this recognition. This is the fourth consecutive year that EPIC has made the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list.

The 52 businesses named earned approximately $1.4 billion in combined revenue in 2012, up 65 percent from the year before. As part of this group, EPIC has grown an impressive 26 percent over the last three years.

Founded in 2007, EPIC has also been honored as a top 40 U.S. retail insurance broker, the eighth largest broker in the U.S. West, one of the nation’s “most productive” brokers and a “Best Place to Work in the Insurance Industry.”

“It’s an honor to be counted among Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies, in a region where we are competing against technology companies and other high growth industries for this distinction,” says Dan Francis, co-founder and chief executive officer of EPIC. “To be one of the few financial services firms and the only insurance broker to make the ‘fastest growing’ list is a significant accomplishment and a real credit to our outstanding EPIC team members. I’m very proud of their accomplishments.”
