CIBA Milestone: 30 years in business

GLENDALE, CA (May, 2023) Thirty Years! What an incredible moment to be able to reflect on. For three decades we've been at the forefront of innovation in the industry, providing a cutting-edge program that has helped shape the future of the excess & surplus lines side of commercial real estate! Join us as we take a trip down memory lane and look back at the key moments that have shaped our journey. We'll also give you a glimpse of what's in store for the future, as we continue to lead the way in commercial real estate programs.

Our Journey So Far...

Our journey began in 1993, when a group of passionate individuals came together with a vision to transform the commercial real estate industry by providing tailored solutions that work. We started small, with just a handful of clients and a few dedicated employees, led by Carl Sharp, our founder. Over the years, we've grown steadily, building a reputation for excellence and innovation. We've expanded our offerings, added new services, and built a team of experts who are passionate about commercial real estate.

During those formative years, it was Michael Marino standing at the front of the company as CEO, taking on the challenges and growing CIBA into a well-known name in the industry. When he recently handed the title of CEO over to Robert Rheel, with over 40 years of industry experience and vision for the future of CIBA. “The platform Mike and team has built over the last 30 years has given us the tools and resources to skate towards the future of Insurance offerings in the commercial real estate market,” says Robert Rheel, current CEO of CIBA, “We are excited by our plans for our clients to align products to what is needed in the market. The entire CIBA family is striving to be the best offer in the commercial real estate space.”

Along the way, we've faced challenges, but we've never lost sight of our vision. We've continued to innovate and push the boundaries of what's possible in commercial real estate programs.

What's Next for Us?

As we celebrate 30 years in business, we're looking to the future with excitement and optimism. We believe that the best is yet to come, and we're committed to continuing to innovate and push the boundaries of what's possible in commercial real estate programs. Thank you to all who have joined us on this incredible journey and we look forward to an even more exciting future.
